Energy consumers are no longer passive. In new distributed energy systems, they see an opportunity to take control of their energy choices. It's as much about transitioning to cleaner power as it is about saving money and avoiding prolonged outages. 

After putting in place a fuel-efficient Combined Heat and Power (CHP) system, those are the benefits Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut is reaping. A ‘superstorm’ several years ago left the campus without power for about 48 hours. With 312 buildings in the dark, the school recognized a need for more reliable power.

Recently, Wesleyan University’s Director of Physical Plant and the Mayor of Middletown discussed the significance of this environmentally-friendly CHP project – which not only saves money and boosts reliability on campus, but also plays a key role in local emergency preparedness plans.
