Saskatchewan Research Council seeks expressions of interest for a 4.7 kW micro combined heat and power system in Saskatoon or Regina

The Saskatchewan Research Council (SRC) is looking for a small, commercial host demonstration site in Saskatoon (preferred) or Regina, to trial a Marathon ecopower™ 4.7 kW microCHP unit. The project is funded by SaskEnergy and SaskPower. The proposed, existing facility must already be heated by a boiler system and needs to have a heating load large enough to obtain optimum runtime for the microCHP system. Suggested facilities include buildings heated with inslab floor heating, a warehouse or shop, hotels, laundromats, carwashes, greenhouses or any facility with a heating demand that will maximize the microCHP system’s runtime.

SRC is conducting a demonstration project, which involves site-specific design, purchasing a Marathon ecopower™ 4.7 kW microCHP unit, installing it into the successful applicant’s building’s heating system and ongoing monitoring. The purpose of the project is to demonstrate the use of microCHP technology to determine and identify its overall efficiency, costs, benefits, issues, regulatory concerns and other related matters.

The closing time and date for Expressions of Interest is Thursday, September 15, 2011 at 2:00 p.m.

  1. Buying electric heating should be considered as an investment. As a vital addition to your home or property.
