Top 5 Reasons to Switch On a Combined Heat and Power System

Posted by Dalkia Aegis on Aug 28

If your facility is looking for a reason to switch on a Combined Heat and Power (CHP) system from Aegis Energy, EDF Group, we don’t just have one—we have five!


Instead of burning fuel to create power and even more fuel to make heat, CHP systems use the same fuel for both purposes, thereby reducing waste and pollution. How (energy) efficient!


Bills don’t seem to go anywhere but up, don’t they? Not with CHP. These systems put facilities in a power position and pay for themselves in under 10 years, with some facilities reaping the benefits in 2–3! Need another reason? Consider this reason 2.5. Aegis offers a Shared Savings Program which defers installation costs, sparing a capital investment and operating expenses.


CHP systems capture waste electricity and heat and reuse them, substantially reducing greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution.


Unreliable electricity is a business, health and safety risk for any facility. Because CHP systems generate on-site electricity, they run reliably—even during a disaster or major power outage.


Depending on heating and electrical requirements, CHP systems can be installed in most residential and commercial facilities.

If you found these reasons compelling enough to install CHP (and we hope you do!) contact us to learn more and to receive a free energy analysis.
