White Paper

Published / Updated:

Until recently, Combined Heat and Power (CHP) systems were only available on an industrial or commercial scale. Micro-CHPs bring the same concept home, operating at close to 90 percent efficiency, which saves money and resources. The ins and outs of these systems include:

  • Micro-CHPs allow you to power your lights, appliances, water and space heating through the same source
  • CHP systems operate at about 90 percent efficiency, compared to 30-40 percent for conventional systems
  • Most analysts predict the payback period to range from three to seven years
  • Micro-CHP units can provide electric energy in the event of a power outage
