Situated at the south side of Burlington Hydro’s facility in the city, the unit will provide heat and electricity to the company’s office building. An interconnection into the building’s electrical supply and heating system delivers 90 kWe, enough to offset one third of the building’s peak load and also provides sufficient heat for much of the building.
