Innovative Propane Technologies: Micro Combined Heat and Power (CHP)

Combined heat and power (CHP) systems use an internal combustion engine to generate heat as well as electricity. Usually found in commercial settings, CHP systems are not new. Recently, however, manufacturers have started offering smaller-scale versions suitable for residential or light commercial use. This video examines two CHP models currently on the market: the Ecopower by Marathon Engine Systems and the CP10WN-SPB by Yanmar America Corp.
