Combined Heat and Power

Cogeneration plantCombined Heat and Power (CHP) or Cogeneration is one of the most common, yet also little known forms of energy recycling. The process involves using the same fuel source, such as natural gas, to create electricity and heat at the same time. Electricity is created using a heat engine, and then the heat created by electrical generation is captured to be used in space or water heating. It’s a legitimate two-for-one deal!

HeatElectricityCHP systems have traditionally been found in municipal or industrial buildings that require a relatively constant power and heat load. Today’s technology now makes it possible to have this power producing and temperature comfort in residential applications as well. MacCo Energy can provide you with solutions in both home and industrial applications.
