Many CHP projects have suffered from improper sizing. CHP sizing is important to ensure the best possible return on investment. Larger CHP units have lower cost per kW of output. Too small of a unit will result in higher cost per kW and a lower return on investment (ROI). However, if a unit is too large the building will not be able to effectively utilize the heat produced and with the higher fuel consumption the ROI will decrease.
For each facility, there is an optimal size for a CHP that maximizes the ROI.
The CHPSizer eliminates the guess work and assumptions in sizing the CHP to optimize the savings and the return on investment.
