American DG Energy has started operating a 375 kW CHP system at Doral Arrowwood Hotel and Conference Center in Rye Brook, New York.
American DG Energy produces energy in the form of electricity, space heat, domestic hot water and pool heat at Doral Arrowwood and sells it to the resort at a price lower than the local energy utility.
The energy is produced with small-scale CHP equipment, including three 100 kW units providing energy for the hotel and one 75 kW unit providing energy to the Pfizer training center. The CHP equipment is located at the resort, but owned and operated by American DG Energy.
American DG Energy estimates the total revenue from the project to be around $10 million over the term of the agreement. The company sells the energy produced on-site from a combined heat and power system to an individual property as an alternative to the outright sale of energy equipment. Doral pays only for the energy used and avoids all capital, installation and operating costs.
