Commercial CHP Systems

Lower your utility bills and increase operational efficiency with a Combined Heating & Power (CHP) unit

Is a CHP system right for your company? Consider these factors

  • One Icon Do you own a tall facility such as an apartment complex, hotel, or downtown building ? Combined heating and power units work best for buildings with this profile
  • Two Icon Does your building have one central boiler system? Combined heating and power units are most effective for buildings with this setup, mainly because they reduce the strain on that central system
  • Three Icon Do you have high demand charges on your utility bills? Combined heating and power units can be a huge help in reducing those charges

Quick facts

Time to install: 1 month
Expected ROI: 4-5 years

Why your organization needs a CHP unit

A CHP unit works much like a typical generator in that it uses natural gas as fuel and produces power. However, the CHP system differs from other methods of generation in that it implements a waste heat recovery system to recover the excess energy released in the process and utilizes it for heating conditioned spaces during colder periods.

In simple terms, combined heating and power units use cheap and effective natural gas to drive a generator to produce electricity for your own use while the wasted energy is used to heat your facility. CHP units work in conjunction with your building’s boiler system, so having one central heating system is the most ideal situation for using with CHP systems.

Typically, taller buildings such as apartment complexes, hotels, or downtown facilities have setups like this and have the right building profiles to reap the benefits of installing a combined heating and power unit. The most valuable benefit of installing a CHP unit is that they reduce the stress on your boiler system, significantly reducing electrical demand charges on your utility bills.

Other benefits of CHP systems

The heat generated by CHP systems is considered renewable, they can be installed on a roof, on the ground, or inside, and they can be mounted and installed just about anywhere. CHP systems are not overly large systems; they can basically be sized to suit the facility’s needs, and they are very modular. Also, they qualify for a 10% federal tax credit have a typical lifespan of at least 20 years.
