TECO utilizes chilled-water and steam networks to provide a range of cooling and heating services to 17 critical medical, research, and educational institutions within the Texas Medical Center. In his new role, Jewell will be responsible for TECO’s engineering and maintenance functions, including design, project management systems and expansion. In this position, Jewell will also oversee IT and TECO’s environmental, health and safety programs.

“Mycah has proven himself to be an exceptionally thoughtful and committed member of the team at TECO,” said Mike Manoucheri, TECO president and CEO. “It is always meaningful when we can provide an opportunity for our employees to advance their careers and skillsets from within, and I have great confidence in how he will apply his engineering and leadership talents and exceed expectations in his new role.”

Jewell brings many years of experience and comprehensive knowledge of thermal plant operations, maintenance, and safety requirements to this most recent promotion. His TECO work history includes extensive experience in project scheduling, contractor oversight, plant and distribution system maintenance, optimization of maintenance procedures, and engineering duties. 

“I am incredibly eager to begin this next chapter of my career with TECO,” said Jewell. “My number one goal is to continue to help TECO reliably meet the needs of our customers by ensuring we have the best systems and processes in place not just today but for decades to come. I’ve found it so interesting and motivating to be in such an ever-advancing industry, all the more so when tasked with providing for such  essentially important customers as the institutions in the Texas Medical Center.”  

TECO’s combined heat and power-based district energy system pipes chilled water and steam to 24.3 million sq ft in 51 buildings in 17 different institutions on the pacesetting Texas Medical Center campus. Customers use TECO’s chilled water for space cooling, cold rooms and refrigeration and TECO’s steam to meet space heating, dehumidification, humidification, sterilization, kitchen, sanitary and research requirements. TECO’s district energy system began operation under the ownership of Houston Natural Gas Co. in 1969, with TECO acquiring the system in 1978. TECO’s chilled-water network is the largest district cooling system in North America.
