Two new CHP units at US Stevens Institute

Massachusetts-based American DG Energy has started up another two energy systems at Stevens Institute of Technology, a technological university, in Hoboken, New Jersey, US.

The addition of these two 75 kW combined heat and power (CHP) systems, located at Stevens Central Plant, brings the total number of energy systems the company owns and operates at the university to nine.

American DG Energy produces clean energy in the form of electricity, space heating and cooling with six small-scale CHP systems and three natural gas chiller cooling systems at five separate buildings on Stevens' campus.

American DG Energy sells the energy produced from an on-site energy system to an individual property as an alternative to the outright sale of energy equipment.  On-Site Utility customers only pay for the energy produced by the system and receive a guaranteed discount rate on the price of the energy.

As a result, Stevens pays only for the energy it uses and avoids all capital, installation and operating costs, including service, maintenance and repair.
