Combined Heat and Power company’s signature Aegen system emission values come in under regulatory limits.
Aegis Energy, EDF Group, LLC, an innovative Combined Heat and Power (CHP) company based in Holyoke, MA, has earned recognition from the State of New Jersey as an insignificant source of emissions.
Aegis has recently completed an installation at Fellowship Senior Living in Basking Ridge, New Jersey.
Aegis Energy’s Combined Heat and Power systems deliver two forms of energy, heat and electricity, from a single fuel source (natural gas). The high-efficiency CHP systems significantly reduce energy costs and harmful emissions as recognized by the EPA.
The New Jersey Corporation for Advanced Technology (NJCAT) has submitted an Independent Performance Verification of the Aegen Thermo Power TP-75 CHP Module to the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP), confirming the system is an insignificant source of emissions under state guidelines.
Conducted by Air Tox Environmental Company of Connecticut, the study involved three, one-hour test runs and data collection of the TP-75’s exhaust stack while operating at 100 % load. The reported emission values were demonstrated to be less than the NJDEP regulatory limits for the purpose of an insignificant source determination for electricity generating equipment that is less than 500 kW in capacity.
Based on NJCAT’s verification report, the NJDEP’s Division of Air Quality recognizes that the Aegen Thermo Power TP-75 CHP Module is an insignificant source of emissions. The designation means the company does not need a preconstruction permit for installation of its 75kW systems in the state of New Jersey.
Fellowship Senior Living is the latest facility to take advantage of this designation with the installation of an Aegis system.
Fellowship Village is a non-profit Life Plan Community, which cares for 450 seniors within its 72-acre location. There are over 350 residences, which include independent living, assisted living, sub-acute care, and rehab services.
The Combined Heat and Power installation will provide the senior-living facility with both heat and hot water while adhering to its sustainability model which includes bamboo flooring, solar panels, and a “green cuisine” approach to dining.
