California 5 Star Resort


California is known the world over for its beautiful beaches, mild climate and sky-high electricity rates!

This resort’s energy costs had nearly doubled while the quality of power continued to decline. Faced with skyrocketing utility costs and intermittent outages, they came to Flexible Energy for help.

Our solution was 440 kW of natural gas powered on-site cogeneration.

This provides the facility with a steady supply of electrical power in parallel with the grid, improving both power quality and availability.

Waste heat provides 110 tons of cooling plus pool & spa heating.

The system generates savings of over $1,000.00 a day!
