Combined Heat and Power (CHP), also known as Cogeneration, is:

– The concurrent production of electricity or mechanical power and useful thermal energy (heating and/or cooling) from a single source of energy.

– A type of distributed generation, which, unlike central station generation, is located at or near the point of consumption.

– A suite of technologies that can use a variety of fuels to generate electricity or power at the point of use, allowing the heat that would normally be lost in the power generation process to be recovered to provide needed heating and/or cooling.

CHP technology can be deployed quickly, cost-effectively, and with few geographic limitations. CHP can use a variety of fuels, both fossil- and renewable-based. It has been employed for many years, mostly in industrial, large commercial, and institutional applications. CHP may not be widely recognized outside industrial, commercial, institutional, and utility circles, but it has quietly been providing highly efficient electricity and process heat to some of the most vital industries, largest employers, urban centers, and campuses in North America.

We have clients that have put generators in place to simply provide power only.  The cost per Kwh is substantially lower than current rates offered by your utility.

Combined Heat and Power Generation:

This system uses a natural gas generator, with all the benefits of Prime Power Generation, and adds a heat recovery circuit to provide heating. This system is more complicated than adding prime power generation, and comes the following added benefits:

– Free hot water that could be used to supply your process loads, such as space heating, drying, and temperature control applications.

– Additional free cooling capacity via an absorption chiller system

– without adding any electrical demand on your system.

– Optional Carbon Dioxide Recovery, Storage, and Biogas systems available.

The heat produced by the generator could be used in one of two systems. The first system allows the heat to be used in your process hot water loads, such as space heating, drying, and melting applications. The second system uses the heat to produce cooling in an absorption chiller.

A Detailed Engineering Study (DES) is required. The market rate for a DES is $20,000 to $30,000. We are offering a special rate of $12,500 for your facility. If we are selected as your installer, we will credit back the $12,500 cost upon project implementation.

FACILITY ASSESSMENT:

RPM Group Commercial Energy Solutions consulting provides a turnkey HVAC and power systems provider. We will examine your previous year’s energy bills and propose beneficial upgrades for your facility.

Estimated capital cost:

Based on your electrical consumption, we have sized a CHP system to supply almost all of your power onsite. This system will also provide a small offset to your heating load  and produce power at a below market rate of $0.06 / kWh or less, depending on how cheap the facility is able to procure natural gas. We have considered a potential combined heat and power upgrade for your facility as follows:

Energy and operations cost:

Annual revenue:

Annual operating expenses:

Financial results:
