8 July 2010 – American DG Energy has reached an agreement to supply clean energy to the Doral Arrowwood Hotel and Conference Center in Rye Brook, New York, US.
Under the terms of the agreement, Doral will soon receive a significant portion of its energy from a 375 kW CHP system, which will be installed at the site, owned and operated by American DG.
Doral will receive a discount on the energy produced by the CHP system and reduce its carbon emissions by up to 1800 tonnes per year.
American DG will produce energy in the form of electricity, heat and hot water at Doral Arrowwood and sell it to the resort at a price lower than the local energy utility.
The energy will be produced with small-scale CHP equipment, comprising three 100 kW units and one 75 kW unit.
Taking advantage of the company’s ‘on site utility’ energy solution, Doral will pay only for the energy it uses and will avoid all capital, installation and operating costs.
American DG will also handle all service, maintenance and repair of the energy system.
