Learn How to Keep Your Electricity Running at NYSERDA’s CHP Power Breakfast and Tour


Combined Heat and Power (CHP) systems can help building owners and facility managers generate electricity, save money and ensure the delivery of critical services in the event of a grid outage. Attend NYSERDA’s breakfast to learn about CHP and the financial/technical support available for the installation of CHP systems sized 50 kW and larger. See how buildings count on CHP systems to:
• Generate electricity every day of the year.
• Save money.
• Protect the environment.
• Operate when the grid goes down.
• Provide enhanced reliability over diesel standby generators.

A brief introduction to CHP technology will be followed by a discussion of available financial and technical resources to support system installations. The program will conclude with a tour of the CHP system at the Toren Condominium.

We will also be discussing the NYC Clean Heat program, which provides technical and financial assistance to buildings still using No. 4 and No. 6 oil and can assist with conversion to natural gas – an essential part of a CHP installation.
