Los Angeles Health Care Facilities to Implement Clean and Green Energy Production with Capstone CHP technology.
Regatta Solutions’ secures an order for CHP Smart Power Solutions in two hospital facilities.
Mission Hills, California: Providence Holy Cross medical Center in Mission Hills steps up as a leader, setting an example by implementing smart microturbine technology in an effort to create a more sustainable operation within their facility.
Two Capstone C800 Natural Gas fueled microturbines will be installed and used in a CHP (Combined Heat and Power) application to offset the facility’s electric base load in addition to providing steam and hot water, boosting their overall site efficiency. “The Capstone micro- turbine opportunity that Regatta Solutions developed for our Providence Holy Cross Medical Center in Mission Hills, CA hits the sweet spot of our energy management program: it lowers operating costs, reduces impacts on community services, and contributes substantially to the Southland’s clean air goals”, said Richard Beam, System Director of Energy Management Services at Providence Health & Services. Capstone Microturbines do not require lubricants or coolants and have few maintenance intervals, providing the hospital with low fixed operating costs. In addition to low maintenance of equipment and broad range of benefits, Providence Holy Cross was also able to take advantage of California’s SGIP (Self-Generation Incentive Program), which provides incentives to support existing, new, and emerging distributed energy resources.
At a separate hospital location in Southern California, Regatta Solutions’ secured an order for a Capstone C1000 natural gas microturbine. This hospital location will be utilizing a CCHP (Combined Cooling Heat and Power) application, offsetting the electric base load while also utilizing the exhaust heat to provide absorption chilling. This configuration in concert with California’s SGIP incentive reduced the payback period, creating a triple bottom line impact for environmental, social and economic benefits. “Healthcare facilities, such as Hospitals, operate 24 hours per day with continuous demands for electricity as well as hot water, steam, or chilling needs. MicroTurbine technology makes good sense for facilities managers looking for equipment with low maintenance, high availability, and low emissions characteristics to address their energy needs”, said Mark Gilbreth, CTO at Regatta Solutions. This project qualified for over $500,000 in SGIP incentives, adding to the benefits associated with energy efficient turbine technology.
