Cogeneration or combined heat and power (CHP) is the use of a heat engine or power station to simultaneously generate electricity and useful heat.
Cogeneration is a thermodynamically efficient use of fuel. In separate production of electricity, some energy must be discarded as waste heat, but in cogeneration this thermal energy is put to use. All thermal power plants emit heat during electricity generation, which can be released into the natural environment through cooling towers, flue gas, or by other means.
Many large industrial, heavy manufacturing, educational and municipal entities are just now discovering the advantages to Combined Heat and Power Plants and their numbers will surely grow over these next few years as business look for ways to keep their costs down while protecting the environment at the same time.
Rush Power is on the leading edge of CHP Plants, with sales and installation, as well as the service to them.
