Vergent maintains this 400kW CHP system providing power, heating, and critical backup.

Michigan Campus Relies on Clean CHP System

“Central heating plants are always a good target for CHP systems, however, smaller distributed generation CHP and solar is worth a close look in today’s energy economy. Resiliency, backup power, carbon reduction, and planning for the future of sustainable energy infrastructure can all be based on CHP. If smaller distributed baseload systems are your choice, Capstone microturbines are a prime solution.”
