Baxter Senior Living has successfully installed five 35kW Yanmar CHP units, which will allow us to make most of the electricity we use from the natural gas we are burning for heat. This results in lower bills and less environmental impact through energy conservation. It will also improve our disaster resilience, because if the power fails, we can switch the units to stand-alone operation and keep the building running on emergency power indefinitely.
Baxter is the 4th customer to deploy these units in Alaska, but the 1st to use more than one of them. I am very hopeful that Baxter’s experience will help pave the way for broader adoption of the technology. … Broader adoption would be a win-win-win for our economy, our environment, and our disaster resilience.
