For more details on the Fall TMAF event, visit the Energy Solutions Center page.

If you have questions about the energy preparedness of your data center or other business critical site, let’s arrange a phone call to review your concerns and ideas.



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!

House of representatives, American Microturbine Manufacturing and Clean Energy Deployment Act - H.R. 4428

CHATSWORTH, Calif., April 11, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Capstone Turbine Corporation ( (Nasdaq:CPST), the world’s leading clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, applauds the introduction of the American Microturbine Manufacturing and Clean Energy Deployment Act H.R. 4428 in the House of Representatives by Congresswoman Linda Sanchez (CA-39).

“I’m proud to sponsor legislation that builds on the great American tradition of innovation and manufacturing. It promotes investment in the clean energy economy and will help our country create new high-paying jobs,” said Congresswoman Sanchez. “It also protects our communities by reducing air pollution and greenhouse emissions. Microturbine technology is an efficient thermal energy and clean electrical power source, and it’s about time for it to join solar power and wind power in the national conversation for clean energy solutions.”

The American Microturbine Manufacturing and Clean Energy Deployment Act would provide a 30% investment tax credit for microturbines, providing parity with tax incentives offered to fuel cells and renewable technologies. Microturbines are highly efficient engines with low emissions that supply clean, distributed, uninterrupted power. Unlike traditional reciprocating engines, Capstone microturbines use an air bearing, eliminating the need for lubricants or coolants. Microturbines can help improve the resiliency of critical facilities in the case of grid failure. Overall energy efficiency of microturbines can reach 90%, surpassing many traditional power generation options. Capstone recently received a certificate from the US Environmental Protection Agency Combined Heatand Power Partnership recognizing the role Capstone’s microturbine technology has had in removing more than 3 million metric tons of carbon dioxide with cogeneration projects alone. This award further highlights and quantifies the clean and green impact of Capstone microturbines.

H.R. 4428 promotes investment in clean energy while simultaneously helping create American jobs. Microturbine technology was invented in the United States where the overwhelming majority of the world’s microturbines are manufactured today. By advancing smart tax policy and regulations to help businesses expand and grow, H.R. 4428 would enable American microturbine producers to triple their domestic manufacturing. The bill will also eliminate the project size restriction placed on microturbines in the current tax code, opening the door to larger deployment opportunities.

“Capstone is the world’s leading manufacturer of clean microturbine energy systems. We are proud to have the sponsorship of Congresswoman Sanchez in her continued support of American manufacturing, clean energy, and energy efficiency,” said Darren Jamison, President and CEO of Capstone Turbine Corporation. “With the greater majority of microturbines being manufactured in the United States, H.R. 4428 will help grow the domestic market for microturbines. If this bill is successful, a greater number of American businesses will achieve energy independence with high efficiency, driving down operating costs and helping make their core business more competitive.”

Employing secure power through trigenration utilizing Capstone Microtubines allowed this facility to ensure back-up power during the ‘crush’ time of processing. Crush time power outages are unpredictable and can have a costly impact on production.

This wine maker is blazing a trail of energy efficiency and secure power that is sure to lead a trend amongst the plethora of wine makers in the region. Read full case study here.

Regatta Solutions takes a stand at the state capital in an effort to generate support of CHP (combined heat and power) and its use within the California.CCDC, SGIP, CHP, GHG, Energy benefits, Smart Power, Regatta Solutions,

March 26, 2014

Yesterday in Sacramento, legislators and advocates convened to give clarity and attention to the economic and environmental benefits of CHP.  This effort is part of the California Clean Distributed Generation Coalition (CCDC) focused on educating policy makers on the benefits of CHP including: energy efficiency, affordability, reduction of green house gas emissions (GHG), high power reliability and secure power.

Regatta Solutions urged lawmakers to take action by eliminating hurdles that CHP providers and technology distributors face in delivering solutions to clients and customers. These actions include: elimination of departing load charges, changes making standby charges equitable across competing technologies, recognition of CHP value to the grid and Cap & Trade.

Lawmakers like Assembly member, Nancy Skinner, provided encouragement of progress by expressing an understanding and enthusiasm towards this type of clean and green smart power solution.  Assembly Member Skinner’s leadership should be applauded, specifically her introduction to save the SGIP (Self Generation Incentive Program) through the introduction of AB1499. This Assembly Bill will extend the program beyond the previously imposed end date of December 31, 2014.

In summary, there is much work to be done to heighten the awareness of CHP within the energy efficiency market. Regatta Solutions efforts with CCDC are focused on getting the message out that CHP adaptation will improve the competitive positioning of California businesses through lower energy cost and reduction of Green House Gas production.  In addition, prominent discussion and debate must take place by the California legislature on securing the electric grid from cyber penetration before a cataclysmic event occurs.  CHP definitely has a role to play in this key homeland security issue.
