capstone Energy ManageRegatta Solutions secured an order to implement Capstone microturbine technology at two hospitals in Los Angeles.

Two Capstone C800 natural gas-fueled microturbines will be installed at Providence Holy Cross Medical Center and used in a Combined Heat and Power (CHP) application to offset the facility’s electric base load in addition to providing steam and hot water.

Providence Holy Cross took advantage of California’s Self-Generation Incentive Program (SGIP), which provides incentives to support existing, new, and emerging distributed energy resources.

At a separate hospital location, Regatta Solutions secured an order for a Capstone C1000 natural gas microturbine. This hospital location will be using a Combined Cooling Heat and Power application, offsetting the electric base load while also utilizing the exhaust heat to provide absorption chilling. This project qualified for over $500,000 in SGIP incentives, adding to the benefits associated with energy efficient turbine technology.
