An Innovative High-Efficiency Energy Solution
Micro combined heat & power (mCHP) is an innovative high-efficiency energy solution that uses natural gas to generate both heat and electricity for your home by capturing the excess thermal energy that would normally be lost during power generation. Instead, the mCHP unit uses the excess thermal energy to heat your home, helping you create greater efficiencies, lower your utility costs and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Because mCHP generates electricity exactly when and where you need it, it can provide you with reliable, low-emitting energy production today and in the future.
Installing our micro combined heat and power (mCHP) unit in your home can help you gain better control of the cost and supply of power to your home.
Energy efficient technologies are just one more way we’re using innovation to broaden our services and your energy options.
