There are many applications for on-site energy projects, including:
- Prime power
- Peaking / Peak Shaving
- Demand Response
- Energy Efficiency
- Standby Generation
- Propane Air
How do you decide what is best for your applications? Is there a single right answer? Do you need a combination of projects? Who can help you sort this out?
If you are thinking about which on-site power project may beyour energy solution, you should consider:
- How much of your electrical consumption can be reduced by addressing energy efficiency upgrades?
- Is your goal primarily financial or is reliability and power quality a concern?
- Do you have enough thermal or cooling needs to support a co-generation project?
- Does your ISO or local utility provide an incentive to:
- Reduce peak loads through self-generation (peak shaving)?
- Generate excess electricity for export to the grid when prescribed system conditions warrant (peaking)?
- Reduce electrical loads during periods of critical high system use (demand response)?
- Do you have a need for reliable standby generation to support operations during local electrical utility outages or to support your emergency response, disaster recovery or business continuity plans?
- Do you need help to address your thermal needs (process steam or hot water)?
- Are you looking to lower your carbon footprint and enhance your green credentials (renewables)?
- Do you need an alternative boiler fuel source?
