The Central Heating Plant is operated by the U.S. General Services Administration, National Capital Region (GSA NCR) and is responsible for a district energy system that provides a reliable, cost-effective and environmentally compatible supply of steam and chilled water to government and quasi-government office buildings, national monuments and museums at the heart of the Nation's Capital.

The Central Heating Plant ranks among the noteworthy structures of early 20th century Washington--a direct and forceful example of functional planning and design. Constructed in the Industrial Art Deco Style, the building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2008.
