Controlled Air, Inc. was granted EPA CPA Partnership

On Wednesday, September 12, 2012 Controlled Air, Inc. was granted EPA CPA Partnership

We were recently bestowed the honor of being a an EPA CHP(Combined Heat and Power) Partner. This partnership gives us access to tools, services and benefits in the further development of CHP; access to the CHP Emissions Calculator to help best determine emission savings in facilities where a CHP system is being considered; up to date information about funding, rebates and incentives specifically available to CHP systems; and notices on regulatory treatment, white papers, and clean energy policy resource documents. Vincent Chiocchio, our president says, “I am excited to have received this recognition and support from the EPA CHP Partnership program.  I hope to use their support and tools to provide more precise calculations of savings and emissions for our customers on future cogeneration projects.”

The EPA CHP Partnership strives to “…promote efficient CHP technologies across the United States. The Partnership works closely with energy users, the CHP industry, state and local governments, and other clean energy stakeholders to facilitate the development of new projects and to promote their environmental and economic benefits.”

We are firm believers in environmentally sound, energy-efficient and high performance commercial building solutions. We are honored to add this certificate to our list of credentials in energy efficiency. We are also sponsoring members of the Connecticut Green Building Council and promote Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System with two LEED AP on staff.

Controlled Air, Inc. has in-house expertise to handle cogeneration projects from beginning to end, having installed over 5 cogeneration systems in the last few years. We specialize in identifying where CHP is best applicable through use of a DOE tested full building energy modeling program. They perform a building baseline analysis and then model the proposed energy saving measures. The results are compared and the energy savings are established. This comparison provides (figures) that are the basis for incentives paid by the utilities, as well as providing a prediction of Return-On-Investment, which in the right applications can be as little as 2.5 years.

We hope to promote the benefits of CHP, using their experience combined with the resources provided by the EPA CHP Partnership. Are you interested in CHP (cogeneration) for your facility? Contact us 203-481-3531
