CHATSWORTH, Calif., Sept. 11, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Capstone Turbine Corporation (www.capstoneturbine.com) (Nasdaq:CPST), the world's leading clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, announced today that it received an order for a C1000 dual mode Power Package to provide thermal and electrical power at a top-ranked, private Christian college in central Pennsylvania.
E-Finity Distributed Generation, Capstone's distributor for the Mid-Atlantic and Southeastern United States, secured the order, which is expected to be commissioned in summer 2016.
After switching to natural gas due to recent propane shortages in the area, the college needed a clean energy solution that would provide year-round electrical power to the campus center, and heating and cooling to various other campus buildings. Capstone microturbines were chosen for their fuel flexibility, low emissions and quiet operation. The on-site microturbine power plant is part of a long-term clean energy project to help the college reduce its carbon footprint and meet its sustainability initiatives.
The natural gas-fueled C1000 Power Package will be installed in a combined cooling, heat and power (CCHP) application to produce electrical power as well as hot and chilled water. The turbine will operate in dual mode, which allows the customer to operate independently of the grid or with the grid in a load sharing capacity. With energy efficiency levels approaching 80 percent, the college will soon benefit from having lower operating expenses, minimal system maintenance and backup power capabilities.
"We are extremely pleased every time one of our microturbines is delivered to a school or university, especially those that invest in clean energy practices and environmental awareness," said Jim Crouse, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Capstone Turbine. "Capstone is dedicated to helping these businesses work towards their goals for long-term sustainability," added Crouse.
