Is My Facility a Good Candidate for CHP?

Answering "yes" to any of the following questions indicates that the facility may be a good candidate for CHP:

  • Do you pay more than $0.10 per kWh on average for electricity (including generation, transmission, and distribution)?
  • Are you concerned about the impact of current or future energy costs on your business?
  • Is your facility located in a deregulated electricity market?
  • Are you concerned about the reliability of your facility's electricity supply? Would there be substantial business, safety, or health impacts if the electricity supply were interrupted?
  • Does your facility operate for more than 5,000 hours per year?
  • Do you have thermal loads throughout the year (such as steam, hot water, chilled water, or hot air)?
  • Do you expect to replace, upgrade, or retrofit central plant equipment (such as generators, boilers, and chillers) within the next 3 to 5 years?
  • Do you anticipate a facility expansion or new construction project within the next 3 to 5 years?
  • Have you already implemented energy efficiency measures and still have high energy costs?
  • Are you interested in reducing your facility's impact on the environment?
