Capstone Green Energy will supply a 3.4 MW microturbine-based power system for a renewable energy customer in southern California.
The system, which will be configured with three Capstone Green Energy C1000S Signature Series microturbines and one C400S Signature Series microturbine, will provide onsite power at the customer’s facility using 100% renewable fuel.
“This order is indicative of the shift we are seeing to more renewable fueled energy projects in recent years,” said Jen Derstine, vice president of Marketing and Distribution at Capstone Green Energy. “In fiscal 2019, renewables made up 7% of our overall business and in fiscal 2021 they made up 13% of our business. That should continue to grow based on incentives, access to renewable fuels and improvements in renewable energy technologies.”
The customer, which was not named by Capstone, initially considered leveraging reciprocating engines for the project but ultimately selected Capstone Green Energy’s microturbines due to their low emissions and low life cycle costs.
“On an environmental scale, Capstone microturbines provide can be an important tool in the fight against climate change,” said Darren Jamison, CEO of Capstone Green Energy. “On a business strategy level, particularly for those businesses in California, our technology makes meeting air quality regulations significantly less complicated and less costly than many alternatives currently on the market.”
The order was secured by Capstone’s distributor in the region, Cal Microturbine.
