- Egenolf mCHP unit - 9.75 kW(e) / 17.5 kW (th) or 59,000 Btu.
We are excited to announce that we are authorized agents for the new micro combined heat and power units being manufactured in BC, Canada by Mr. John Egenolf. John has been a PlantDrive customer for a number of years, and in the last while received an IRAP grant to develop mCHP units fully optimized for off-grid use.
So, if you are getting more than a little concerned about rising electricity costs, (and if not, read this!) but also realize the solar panels aren't a 100% solution (cloudy winters, a need for heating, etc.) then you owe it to yourself to check out these units! With a battery bank and a large tank for heated water, which is then circulated into your home, business or shop heating system as needed, you may only need to actually run the mCHP unit for a small portion of the day!
Combine with solar panels, to create hybrid systems.
NOTE: These units are ideal for owners of restaurants, resorts, institutional kitchens and other food service facilities which generate used cooking oil! With our Pump N' Filter System, one of these units, and a WVO powered diesel or electric vehicle (charged with the mCHP unit on WVO), you can operate your business on your own used cooking oil, be fossil free, hedged against rising power costs and be virtually carbon-neutral.
Here is one example of the units we can provide, converted to run on Waste Vegetable Oil (WVO) - larger sizes (and other fuel types) are also available!
