Congera Cogen Solar
Solar cogeneration optimizes the power of the sun by creating both electricity and hot water from a combined solar photovoltaic and thermal module. By combining proven photovoltaic and solar hot water systems, solar cogeneration offers the most cost-effective and environmentally friendly solar solution available
BENEFITS OF SOLAR COGENERATION
Solar cogeneration is the most cost-effective and environmentally friendly distributed solar solution available. Cogenra installations surpass traditional photovoltaic and solar hot water installations in economics, delivered energy and reduced carbon emissions.
PREDICTABLE, LONG-TERM ENERGY SAVINGS
Cogenra’s commercial solar arrays produce low-cost renewable electricity, hot water and cooling onsite, delivering long-term energy savings on utility bills. Solar cogeneration displaces both natural gas or propane and electricity consumed from the grid, freeing businesses from rising energy costs and price volatility.
HEDGE AGAINST UTILITY RATE INCREASES
Solar cogeneration hedges against rising electric and gas rates. Since 1970, commercial electric utility rates in California have risen 650 percent and natural gas prices have risen 1,360 percent.
Through Cogenra systems, customers secure predictable long-term energy costs. If customers chose to purchase a system directly, their investment has the highest internal rate of return of any available solar system. With other financing options, customers can avoid any upfront expense, debt and ongoing maintenance exposure
EMISSION-FREE RENEWABLE ENERGY
Cogenra’s cogeneration system is the most environmentally responsible solar solution on the market, eliminating greenhouse gas emissions at nearly three times the rate of traditional PV and 50 percent more than the rate of solar hot water systems alone. Solar cogeneration also can reduce local fuel burning, improving regional air quality.
