Microturbines installed under NY plan

RSP Systems, a cogeneration contractors company, has completed the installation of New York’s first microturbines – from Capstone Turbine Corporation – in four locations under the city’s new rule for residential and commercial use.

The machines are gas-fired and produce both heat and power.

In December, New York City implemented the country’s first standard for the safe use and installation of microturbine technology.

Charles Norman of Millennium Partners, one of the locations for the installations said: ‘The microturbine is a highly efficient source of distributed generation, and the Capstone C60 installed at our Millennium Tower Residences allows us to contribute to the mayor’s and the city’s commitment to increase the use of efficient, clean-burning, power-generation technologies.’
