2013 Certificate of Avoided GHG Emissions
We received a very exciting letter and certificate from EPA’s CHP Partnership
Controlled Air, Inc.
21 A Thompson Rd
Branford, CT 06405
On behalf of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Combined Heat and Power Partnership, I am pleased to provide you with your organization’s 2013 Certificate of Avoided GHG Emissions. The certificate documents the estimated carbon dioxide emissions avoided in 2013 by the CHP projects for which you provided data, expressed in metric tons and the equivalent emissions from electricity use by U.S. homes. This estimate is calculated by comparing the emissions from each CHP system to the total emissions from conventional separate heat and power (i.e., grid electricity and on-site thermal generation).
The certificate also includes the cumulative carbon emissions avoided by the CHP projects you have reported. The certificate can be a valuable resource for communicating the environmental benefits of CHP to your customers, your stakeholders, and the public.
If you have any questions regarding the 2013 Certificate of Avoided GHG Emissions or any of our tools and resources available at www.epa.gov/chp, please do not hesitate to contact the CHP Partnership at (703) 373-8108.
Congratulations on your achievement in reducing carbon pollution in the United States.
