Capstone Turbine Corporation, the clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, announced that it has received an order for a C800 Signature Series microturbine from its California distributor.
The order, secured by Cal Microturbine, Capstoneâs exclusive distributor for California, will be commissioned during the latter part of 2019. The four-bay C800S will provide 800 kW of reliable power that will operate on available sour gas as fuel. Capstoneâs microturbines were selected due to their low maintenance, low emissions and overall emission reducing capabilities.
âThe C800S, as well as the rest of our product line, is designed to run on a range of fuels making our systems the ideal solution for customers that are looking for ultra-low emission and highly reliable on-site power generation. When compared to competing solutions or just flaring the on-site gas, our systems produce a fraction of the total site emissions,â? said Darren Jamison, President and Chief Executive Officer of Capstone Turbine Corporation.
Californiaâs Self-Generation Incentive Program (SGIP) provides incentives for the installation of self-generating technologies that helps customers replace all, or a portion of, traditional grid provided electricity. There is a total budget of approximately USD 124M under this program for power generation technologies. Capstoneâs end-use customers may benefit from these incentives as they may help maximize the return on their investment.
âCapstoneâs product line has seen an increase in demand following tightening emission requirements across the state of California. Our technology not only qualifies for the stateâs SGIP program, but it also qualifies for an additional 20% of the rebate amount under the program, as we are a California supplier,â? said Jim Crouse, Capstone’s Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing.
