Yanmar America Introduces New 5 kW mCHP Energy System

Yanmar America has rolled out a new 5 kW mCHP (micro-Combined Heat and Power) system, CP5WN. The new 5 kW system is designed for use in smaller settings than its 10 kW predecessor.

Powered by natural gas or propane, the co-generation unit reduces primary energy consumption by using the waste heat produced during the production of electricity to enable energy savings.

The system’s commercial uses include: restaurants, small office buildings, laundromats, small hotels, stand-alone retail establishments and fitness centers.

Yanmar says that the 5 kW system can pay for itself in three years. The co-generation design of the CP5WN makes it 84-percent efficient compared to 33-percent efficiency attained using a traditional utility plant. And, the company says, the annual savings on utility costs can be as much as $15,000 in either a commercial or residential setting.
