Regatta Solutions has helped businesses overcome the challenges of unreliable utility power for over a decade now. Several of our clients in the San Diego area are currently benefiting from their power generation projects while SDG&E has power shut down in their area. A Dual Mode power generation project is able to operate even when the grid is not operating. The controls that Regatta Solutions designs for our clients automatically disconnect the power supply from the grid when it becomes unstable or unavailable and then automatically reconnects and operates in Grid Parallel mode when SDG&E comes back online. These projects save millions of dollars for our clients over the life of the project and we even provide financing. The cost of financing is included in our economic models and the actual value of the project is measured by Agave System’s Evolution software so that CFO’s and management can see how their investment is paying off over lifetime and real time. Ask us how a project for your facility would pay off.

Regatta Solution recently received an order for a 500 TR Thermax Multi-Energy driven chiller from a premier grow house facility in California. The equipment is capable of delivering chilled and hot water for cooling & heating applications.

“This sale demonstrates the strategic value of engaging Regatta to develop a cost effective approach to the cooling demands of a Grow House,” said Jeff Noble, VP of Sales, for Regatta Solutions. “A single chiller will be driven by the engine exhaust gases and jacket water heat as thermal heat recovery providing the co-generation efficiency of @80%. These chillers will have natural gas as backup firing in the event the cooling demand rises more than thermal heat recovery. By going the way of using an absorption chiller, the client is able to save on its electrical power consumption by 90%, which is @2 million units per annum which is used for air-conditioning application, thereby less dependent on grid power and shaving peak demand charges.”

This chiller has the capability to provide simultaneous chilled and hot water for the HVAC requirements of grow house cultivation.

“We are ecstatic with the continued success and partnership with Thermax. This project will be a cornerstone to demonstrating the efficiencies that Thermax can bring a grow house,” said Vijay Sharma, GM – Engineering Sales & Services – Cooling & Heating, Regatta Solutions.
