This facility houses both administrative offices and a private school, operating approximately 12 hours per day, five to six days per week. Rising energy costs had a devastating effect on their operating budget, while frequent utility outages interrupted operations.
Cogeneration is a versatile technology applicable to a wide variety of applications. Our solution for this facility was a 440 kW on-site cogeneration system.
It provides the facility with a steady supply of power in parallel with the utility grid and provides over $225,000.00 a year in energy cost savings.
- 440 kW natural gas packaged cogeneration system
- 110 Ton absorption chiller
- Annual Savings: $225,000.00
- 7 Year Savings: $1,575,000.00

The system also has improved overall power quality while providing protection from utility outages.
This application is real-world proof that cogeneration is not just for industrial or round-the-clock applications. Even with relatively low annual run-time hours, this facility realizes substantial energy savings and a rapid payback. This entire turnkey project, including engineering, permitting and installation, after rebate, was under $400,000 providing a payback of less than two years!
