Global green energy leader Capstone Green Energy Corporation has announced that its Alaska distributor Arctic Energy has received an order for five Capstone 65 kilowatt (kW) integrated heating and power (ICHP) dual-mode microturbines.

The system was purchased by a waste management facility that is part of the Municipality of Anchorage. It will supply both heat and power for all the facility's critical infrastructure required to operate the site, even during harsh winter conditions.

Deriving fuel from natural gas, the microturbine-based energy array will run in 'multi-pack,' supplying 325 kW of power as it functions side by side with the local utility.

Using Capstone's automatic dual-mode capabilities, the system will be able to directly switch to standalone backup power in the event of a local grid failure. The system is expected to be commissioned in September 2022.

The customer sought after the new power system as part of its plan for expansion of one of its main facilities. This gave rise to an opportunity to establish new energy efficiencies that had previously not been a part of the site.

After taking into consideration solar and battery storage options, it was determined that a combined heat and power or CHP system would be the most reliable and economical solution. Though solar and battery integration will be possible in the future, they will not be part of the current configuration.

"Municipalities have tremendous opportunity to leverage the cost efficiencies and reliability of CHP, especially in light of growing constraints on the utilities," said Darren Jamison, Chief Executive Officer, Capstone Green Energy. "Beyond these benefits, there are also the environmental benefits of running a highly efficient system. These are the kind of wins that give constituents confidence that their local leaders are truly looking after their best interests."
