Belleville, New Jersey (PRWEB) February 03, 2014
Amid fluctuating energy prices, environmental concerns and growing demand on the U.S. grid, the EPA has launched a Partnership Program to make the public aware of the many advantages of Cogeneration (CHP). One of the companies singled out for participation in the program is GREENCROWN Energy LLC — a full-service energy consulting company specializing in energy supply, cost reduction and turnkey cogeneration systems development.
“We certainly believe the EPA is doing the right thing in making businesses aware that Cogeneration is not only the future, it's today’s most practical and cost-effective energy source,” said Paul Errigo, director of business development for GREENCROWN Energy. “We are doing everything we can to get the word out that Cogeneration not only makes fantastic business sense, but it’s a remarkably ‘green’ and reliable alternative to the way building owners have historically purchased power.”
Errigo pointed out that the most efficient power plants in the country achieve no more than 60 percent efficiencies, whereas CHP systems routinely achieve efficiencies of 80 percent and higher. “It’s a no-brainer," he said. "Not only will businesses benefit from big cost savings and in many cases predictable prices year after year, but they will also be recognized for turning to a ‘green,’ economically friendly way to provide heat and cooling for their buildings.”
He added that lessening reliance on the Grid also means that businesses, such as hospitals, won’t suffer the same outages as other buildings dependent on obtaining all of their energy from the Grid.
“As more companies learn about the cost efficiencies of CHP, the movement toward Cogeneration will continue to gain momentum," Errigo noted. "People are learning that CHP technology is easy to install, cost effective and more affordable than they thought."
He explained that “you no longer need much space for a cogeneration plant. Almost any building in the city already has enough room for a CHP plant without needing to make modifications. With up to 65 percent energy cost savings — not to mention special incentive programs being offered by federal and state programs for converting to cogeneration — going Cogen is an easy decision for building owners.”
Interest in Cogeneration at Green Crown Energy has never been higher, Errigo observed. “We hear from real estate property managers, engineers, property owners and facilities directors every single day. After they have crunched the numbers and looked at the ease of installation, reliability and cost savings of CHP, they are typically ready for us to come out and discuss Cogen with them,” he said.
Errigo added that as part of the EPA Partnership Program on CHP technologies, GREENCROWN Energy devotes a number of days per month to help shed light on cogeneration for interested businesses. “We’re always happy to give a comprehensive free consultation to businesses that want to find out whether CHP is right for their operation," he said.
