TECO’s customers offer high-quality patient care, provide unparalleled educational opportunities and conduct groundbreaking life-science research on the Texas Medical Center (TMC) campus in Houston. They need the most reliable and efficient district energy service possible – and TECO is committed to providing it.

TECO distributes chilled water and/or steam to 51 buildings at 17 customer institutions on the TMC campus. Totaling 24.3 million sq ft of space, TECO’s customers include the largest children’s hospital in the U.S., four Level I trauma centers and multiple high-level life science research labs. (See map of individual institutions served.)

TECO’s largest customer is The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, where TECO serves more than 7.8 million sq ft of space in multiple facilities. MD Anderson is ranked No. 1 in the U.S. for cancer care by U.S. News & World Report’s annual “Best Hospitals” survey.

TECO and its customers have always been partners in growth, with TECO serving as the energy behind what’s next on campus. Campus institutions now have $3 billion in construction projects underway. The newest is a 1.5 million sq ft collaborative research complex, TMC3.

Campus growth helped drive TECO’s $377 million energy-saving system expansion that was completed in 2011.

The Texas Medical Center is the eighth-largest business district in the United States and is really a “medical city” unlike any other. Institutions located on the Texas Medical Center campus – including district energy provider TECO – are Texas Medical Center members. 

TMC began through the generous philanthropy of M. D. Anderson in the 1930s. Incorporated in 1948, TMC manages the land and provides the infrastructure for this “city,” functioning much like a city hall for its member institutions.
