Using propane for standby generators and CHP

Learn how backup generators and CHP systems can help protect your homes or buildings and even reduce operating costs.

A standby generator can ensure a homeowner’s quality of life by keeping the electricity flowing in the event of a power failure. And for building owners, standby power can be an essential feature to keep critical refrigeration or technology systems up and running. A standby generator can even serve as a primary energy source for homes or buildings built off the main grid. Newer CHP systems can efficiently produce heat in addition to electricity. Learn about all of the propane-fueled power generation options available in the following training courses.
