Energizing University Circle

Our Mission

The Medical Center Company (MCCo) is dedicated to providing essential utility services to our valued members within University Circle in Cleveland, Ohio. Established in 1932 as a not-for-profit corporation, MCCo was founded with the purpose of consolidating and optimizing energy distribution for the non-profit institutions in this vibrant community. Our mission is clear: to deliver reliable, environmentally responsible utility services at below-market prices, always striving for superior service and safety.

Our Members

At MCCo, we proudly serve the educational, charitable, and religious institutions that make up the rich tapestry of University Circle. All of our members are tax-exempt organizations, each operating exclusively for the betterment of our community. We understand the unique needs and challenges faced by these organizations, and we are committed to supporting their missions by providing efficient, cost-effective, and sustainable utility services.

Our Model: District Energy System

MCCo operates as a central hub for energy distribution through a District Energy System—a proven and efficient model embraced by many major cities, universities, and campuses across the United States. This approach allows us to consolidate energy sources, promoting efficient fuel utilization, realizing economies of scale, and streamlining equipment maintenance. By centralizing energy generation, we also create space-saving opportunities in our members' buildings that would otherwise require individual heating and cooling systems. In essence, our district energy system optimizes the use of resources within our community, resulting in cost savings and a more environmentally friendly operation.

We take pride in being part of a broader network of over 2,500 district energy systems in the United States, contributing to a nationwide effort to enhance energy efficiency and environmental sustainability.
