Capstone to supply gas-fired CHP system to Michigan hospital

Capstone Turbine Corp. (Nasdaq: CPST) said it has sold a dual-mode C1000 power package to a Michigan hospital that will operate in a combined heat and power (CHP) application.

The C1000 will provide both prime and backup power.

In prime power mode, the C1000 will use natural gas as fuel to provide an estimated 25 percent of the hospital's total power. The power package will generate electricity to offset the hospital's reliance on utility power. Microturbine exhaust heat will create steam for facility heating. If the grid fails, Capstone said the grid-connected C1000 will run independently to protect the hospital's critical loads by automatically kicking into stand-alone mode.
