Belleville, New Jersey (PRWEB) January 19, 2014
GREENCROWN Energy LLC — a full-service energy consulting company specializing in energy supply, cost reduction and turnkey cogeneration systems development — will be sharing the latest financial and environmental advantages of on-site Cogeneration power production at the 66th Annual AHR Expo on January 21-23 at the Javits Convention Center in New York City.
“Building owners are not only extremely concerned with rising energy costs these days, but the stability of the U.S. power grid itself,” said Paul Errigo, director of business development at Green Crown Energy. “Cogeneration is an economical and practical way to drastically lower energy outlay, while greatly minimizing the risk of power outages, which is a major concern of hospitals among many other industries.”
The AHR Expo is known for attracting thousands of professionals from numerous industries, including air conditioning, heating, refrigeration, ventilation and plumbing. “There’s no doubt that saving money on energy is on every building owner’s mind right now, so we expect large crowds at the GREENCROWN display,” Errigo added. “We’re fortunate to have some of the top experts on the subject today on staff, and they’ll be on hand at our display (6602) to answer questions or schedule free consultations.”
According to Errigo, there’s never been a better time for building professionals to consider converting to Cogeneration, which simultaneously generates heat and power (CHP). “On-site Cogeneration power plants have become dramatically smaller, extremely efficient and cost effective,” he said. “For any business interested in lowering its energy costs by up to 60 percent, while ensuring it always has a stable, environmentally friendly power supply, Cogeneration is the way to go.”
Errigo added that, “Not only does Cogeneration cut energy costs, but with so many local and federal incentive programs in place, they can actually cover up to 70 percent of the costs associated with converting to Cogen.”
Although the incentive programs and grants have helped make Cogeneration a no-brainer for many businesses, he noted, nonprofit organizations can also benefit from CHP. “It’s true that most of the incentives, programs and grants are going to for profit organizations, but nonprofits can also benefit in a number of ways.”
Errigo pointed out that an increasing number of nonprofit organizations are taking advantage of what he calls “Power Purchase Agreements.” “These are a fantastic way for a nonprofit to lock in 7 to 15 percent in energy savings for 15 years without any operating costs, such as new equipment or the replacement of boilers, chillers, water heaters, cooling towers and water pumps,” he explained. “Our clients love this program because they pay for only the energy they use.”
According to Errigo, every conceivable cogeneration-related question will be addressed at the GreenCrown Energy Display, including how to determine whether a property qualifies for cogeneration, the financial and environmental benefits of converting to cogeneration, and why on-site CHP power production is the future.
“When we explain to a professional that heat is harnessed and turned into usable energy at no cost and how they will no longer need their old boilers to keep their facilities warm or how an Absorption Chiller can provide free air conditioning, they always want to know more about it,” he said.
Errigo added that many of Green Crown Energy’s clients are also interested in reducing their company’s carbon footprint. “It’s not all about money; Cogeneration is a remarkably ‘green’ way to attain power,” he advised. “Thanks to Cogen, many of our clients now have buildings that have been certified ‘green,’ and that’s also a positive story to share with their customers.”
