Make Your Business Better with Combined Heat and Power
A Combined Heat and Power (CHP) system can nearly double your energy efficiency, increase your resilience, and get you off the grid.
In today’s environmentally-conscious world, we’re all looking for ways to reduce our pollution and keep our planet clean for the next generation. For big businesses, hospitals, universities, and other corporations with large campuses, it can be difficult to perform necessary daily operations, maintain reliability, and still do your part to reduce emissions. If this sounds like your facility, then we’re here to talk to you about Combined Heat and Power (CHP).
CHP systems are ideal for facilities that have large electric loads and year-round thermal needs. By producing electricity on site and recycling waste heat using one fuel source, natural gas, CHP systems are not only twice as efficient as traditional central power stations — operating at up to 80% efficiency — but they also emit the same amount of energy without relying on the grid.
By using a CHP system, you can reduce your carbon footprint and cut your CO2 production in half, dramatically lowering the amount of greenhouse gas emissions your building produces. CHP systems also put an end to fly ash, as well, and they virtually eliminate water consumption for energy purposes.
Thankfully, being environmentally-friendly doesn’t mean sacrificing reliability. CHP systems make your facility less dependent on the grid. They operate using natural gas pipes that are underground and largely unaffected by weather conditions, unlike above-ground power lines. You don’t have to worry about losing time and productivity due to unexpected power outages.
When working with Peoples to implement a CHP system, you will have access to 15 different marketers’ natural gas operating pools behind our city gate, and a service territory that extends throughout Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Kentucky that can pull from over 8,000 producer direct interconnects within our pipeline system.
With a CHP system, you can also see real savings, and we consult with experts to create the best solution for your business or organization. Our low-cost abundant gas supply is produced in Pennsylvania, and that price isn’t predicted to fluctuate in the foreseeable future. It is tied directly into our pipeline system, avoiding the costs associated with interstate pipelines.
CHP systems are flexible and can be the sole source of heat and power for your business, or they can be integrated with your existing systems and equipment. They can also be tailored to fit your budget and your needs.
If your goals are to increase savings, boost reliability, and help the environment, then we encourage you to consider Combined Heat and Power.
