If you’re attending WEFTEC®, the Water Environment Federation’s Annual Technical Exhibition and Conference (Sept. 27 – Oct. 1), you’re concerned about the management of your project’s water resources. Water and energy are deeply connected, and cogeneration technology can ensure that you get the most from both resources.

Microturbines powered by biogas or natural gas generate electricity onsite and reduce utility demand, costs, and risks. And with cogeneration, you get a second helping of efficiency. The turbine exhaust heat pulls double duty as:

  • Hot water generation
  • Water pre-heating
  • Waste water disinfection for safe discharge or recycling

Bring your questions about power, hot water, and cogeneration and speak with a Regatta rep while you’re at the WEFTEC exhibition. To ensure we connect, book an appointment!

WEFTEC 2014

Regatta-C1000CHATSWORTH, Calif., Sept. 4, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Capstone Turbine Corporation (www.capstoneturbine.com) (Nasdaq:CPST), the world’s leading clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, announced today that it received an order for two C1000 microturbines to upgrade a technology innovation firm in Southern California.

Capstone’s distributor in California, Regatta Solutions, secured the two-megawatt order.

The technology innovation firm conducted an analysis of their energy usage and decided it was time to upgrade to a more efficient and reliable power generation solution. After comparing various technologies, the firm chose Capstone’s clean-and-green microturbines.

The primary criteria in the decision making process were reliability, availability, cleanliness, and cost savings. The two natural gas fired C1000 microturbines are dual mode, meaning they can operate independently of the grid or work with the grid in a load sharing capacity. This ensures the firm is receiving the lowest electricity cost available at various times of the day and year.

Additionally, the C1000’s will be operating in a combined heat and power (CHP) application. The clean exhaust from the microturbines will be captured via heat exchangers and will provide hot air and hot water to the facility. This boosts the overall efficiency of the firm’s energy usage to greater than 80%.

“High system resiliency and independence of the grid for secure power were key drivers for this project,” stated Steven Acevedo, President and CEO of Regatta Solutions. “The Capstone C1000 microturbine system provided the best solution for our client’s requirements of high availability and high energy efficiency.”

Because the technology innovation firm is located in Southern California, a state with some of the strictest emissions standards in the world, minimizing the environmental impact was an important factor in the decision making process. Capstone microturbines meet and exceed Tier 4 level emission standards with no exhaust after treatment. Reciprocating generator sets require bolt on exhaust after treatment equipment to meet these strict emission standards, adding to the first cost, lifecycle cost and footprint of the installation.

“Businesses are constantly seeking ways to enhance their core processes and become more efficient while simultaneously improving their bottom line,” said Jim Crouse, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Capstone Turbine. “Capstone microturbines are the ideal solution, helping businesses achieve energy independence by providing reliable, efficient, and clean power at a lower cost than the local utility,” added Crouse.

Join the combined heat and power community for the CHP Conference in Los Angeles. New environmental regulations, an increased awareness of energy efficiency benefits, and a growing understanding of the key role CHP plays in the security and resilience of our infrastructure combine to make this conference a priority for anyone in the energy sector. If you are planning an energy project of any size or complexity, CHP should at least be on your short list of options. At this conference you can see why. You will meet with the experts from across the energy spectrum to understand how CHP fits into your energy puzzle. The conference will feature presentations from government officials, CHP users, NGOs, CHP manufacturers, utilities and more.
