Simplifying home energy systems is now a reality.
Micro-cogenerators, or combined heat and power
systems (CHP) combine heat, air conditioning,
electricity and hot water from a single source.
Micro-cogenerators not only reduce energy costs, but also
reduce dependence on foreign oil, carbon emissions and
Micro-cogenerators are 90 percent efficient and are both
environmentally friendly and a money saver. In simplest terms,
micro-cogenerators work like a car’s engine, equipped to
generate electricity and provide domestic hot water and heat.
These devices can operate on natural gas, fuel oil or biodiesel.
While micro-cogenerators are considered to be money-saving
and energy-efficient models, the main problem is cost due to
the lack of current popularity.
Micro-cogenerators can be installed in homes, offices,
restaurants, markets, convenience stores, hotels, and farms.
Micro-cogenerators are likely to become more popular in the
United States and Canada as the cost of home-heating fuel and
environmental awareness increases.
