The Advantages of Cogeneration
Cogeneration reduces carbon emissions and increases efficiency by merging the production of heat and electricity into a single process. A cogeneration system’s combination of heat and power generation can reach up to 80 percent efficiency as compared with 40 to 50 percent efficiency for normal combustion.
Not only does a cogeneration, or Combined Heat and Power (CHP), system reduce overhead costs and wasted energy, it also provides more energy independence by moving a portion of your energy load off the main grid, making it possible to keep operating even in the event of a major local power outage. It’s an ideal solution for commercial clients who:
- Use large quantities of electrical and heat energy
- Urgently need to avoid downtime
- Operate more than 3,000 hours per year
- Operate carrying a thermal load
- Are planning an expansion, upgrade or overhaul to their power systems
Implementing a CHP system requires the support of qualified experts like the team from Valley Air Mechanical who can handle design, implementation, operations, maintenance and fuel support. Contact us for a free consultation to learn more.
