Combined heat and power (CHP) is an efficient and clean approach to generating electric power and useful thermal energy from a single fuel source.
A CHP unit recaptures the wasted energy from a generator’s hot exhaust and engine cooling systems and re-purposes it into heat for industrial processes, hot water, space heating and even cooling and dehumidification.
As a form of Distributed Generation (DG), CHP’s inherent high efficiency and elimination of transmission losses from a traditional central power plant results in reduced primary energy use and lower greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
Thanks to the effective utilization of “waste heat” through the combined production of heat and power, up to an additional 40% of the energy contained in the fuel is saved, compared to the separate production of heat and power.

Reduced Energy Costs, Enhanced Energy Reliability and A Cleaner Environment

Our Total Power Sudbury team recently joined up with Sudbury’s Kicx 91.7, Ramakko’s Source for Adventure, the City of Sudbury Fire Department, the Sudbury Regional Police and Legend Boats to help collect six tons of non perishable food items for Sudbury’s Elgin Street Mission.
The fundraiser, held on Friday June 16th, featured our Total Power Sudbury branch manager’s own band, “Northbound”, who performed a few favorite country songs on a brand new pontoon boat that served as a stage.
Another great example of why we are so proud of our many employees across the country who are truly engaged in their communities.

Recent storms in Sudbury, Ontario, resulted in several damaged homes from high winds and hail.
The storm, pictured below, blew out windows, knocked down trees and electrical poles, and all within a period of just five minutes!
Then the power went off.
The power for most of Sudbury did not return for 12 hours and the phone calls to our Sudbury rental team began.
As the calls came in, the Total Power Sudbury rental team flew into action renting to grocery stores, restaurants, power and utility companies, and other businesses looking for immediate help.
This storm, ironically happening just before Emergency Preparedness Week, serves as a good reminder to ensure you are properly prepared!
Total Power rents generators as small as 15kW up to 2,000W and we offer load banks of all sizes and types. Our rental equipment is built to stand up to the rigors of our tough demanding client base with products that will perform reliably when needed.
Emergency rental deliveries – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!
