What is Combined Heat & Power (CHP)

Traditional standby generators create heat when making electricity, from both the engine block and the exhaust flue, but it is wasted heat. A CHP unit collects that generated heat and re-purposes it into hot water, increasing its efficiency dramatically.

The resulting production of electricity and heat from the same generator system produces lower energy bills, a reduced carbon footprint and optional back-up power.

By recycling this previously wasted energy with a CHP unit (also known as a cogeneration unit) you are effectively increasing the benefits and value of the gaseous fuel source you are already consuming.

Combined Heat and Power = Lower energy bills, a reduced carbon footprint and the option for back-up power

How It Works – Energy Savings through Cogeneration   

Thanks to the effective utilization of “waste heat” through combined production of heat and power up to 40% of the energy contained in the fuel is saved compared to the separate production of heat and power.
