By recycling the waste heat from the electric generation process, efficiencies in excess of 80% are possible.
Reduced Generation Costs
Gas Turbines provide consistent output without fluctuations and are UL1741 certified, allowing interconnection with the utility grid.
Gas Turbine CHP or CCHP systems provide a tremendous reduction in NOx emissions compared with traditional sources of electrical and heat energy.
Reduced Greenhouse Gas/CO2
Gas Turbine CHP or CCHP solutions also significantly reduce CO2 emissions compared to traditional systems.
Another important customer benefit of using clean, efficient DG is secure power for critical facility loads. The result is that traditional backup diesel generators may not be needed, eliminating them as a source of even greater exhaust emissions. Customer loads managed in this way help the utility during imminent power failure conditions occurring in peak demand periods (like hot summer afternoons). As the utility grid begins to lose frequency control with excessive demand, the facility loads can be switched off of the utility grid, and electric and heat energy are sustained by the microturbines. Thus, the utility sees decreased load during these difficult times, and the customer can continue to power their facility in case the utility grid fails.
