Primary and Standby Power Generation For Hospitals And Universities

Solar serves the institutional industries with a variety of gas turbine and energy solutions, including:

  • Combined Heat and Power (CHP)
  • Base-load Electricity
  • Distributed Power
  • Combined Cycle
  • Peak Shaving
  • District Heating/Cooling
  • Mobile Power
  • Standby Power

Our power generation products are installed in a wide variety of facilities, including colleges and universities, hospitals, government facilities, and rural or electric cooperatives.  Our gas turbine generator packages can achieve overall thermal efficiencies of 80% or more in CHP or combined-cycle configurations, where the heat from the turbine exhaust is recovered to produce steam, preheated combustion air, or hot air for heating or refrigeration.
