Believe it or not, 2020 has come to an end, and it’s time to start working toward your New Year’s resolutions for 2021. If energy efficiency isn’t topping your business’ list already, it could be a smart and cost-effective option to consider. We’ll explain how you can make energy savings a top goal for 2021, and how we can help.
Take the First Step to Energy Efficiency
There are many ways to plan out your energy efficiency roadmap, but none will be as effective as investing in a Combined Heat and Power (CHP) system. Our CHP systems use nearly all natural gas input to produce heat and electricity.
CHP systems provide an operational efficiency of 85%, compared to traditional central power plants which only provide 30% efficiency. That means those plants waste the other 55% in discharged heat and electrical losses. This increased efficiency leads to substantially reduced energy costs, making CHP the most effective energy solution.
It gets even better: here in Massachusetts, CHP projects are eligible for grant incentives through multiple utility companies. Just contact us to learn more or to begin the application process.
The Election Effect
It’s now more important than ever to consider switching to CHP.
With the 2020 Presidential election in the books, new government policies are expected to come into play in 2021. President-elect Joe Biden is expected to re-join the Paris Climate Agreement on his first day in office.
The agreement is a legally binding international treaty, with the goal to limit global warming through reducing greenhouse gas emissions and framing long-term sustainable strategies. For the Paris Agreement to meet those goals, renewable energy must be paired with enhances energy efficiency.
We’re proud to be a part of the transition: the U.S. Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy recognizes CHP as a low emission system and a viable energy strategy.
