Project Highlights

  • Pilot project planned at new Woodward Headquarters campus in Downtown Fort Collins
  • Additional pilot projects are being studied at the CSU Main campus

What is it?

Generating electricity at a customer site with a small turbine or engine and capturing the heat that would be wasted for useful purposes. By capturing the wasted heat – significantly higher efficiencies can be reached.

How does it help?

Combined Heat and Power has the potential to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 75 percent compared with traditional coal plant generated power.

What will it cost?

General initial cost for Combined Heat and Power can be roughly $750,000 per installed MW electric output.
