When you think of cleaner energy, do you immediately think solar, or wind power? That is to be expected, due to the recent clean energy boom in modern society, and how reliant it is on solar and wind. But have you ever wondered if more options exist? Horizon Power Systems have some answers, and have implemented these answers in various locations.
Today we continue our research into the benefits of providing power through microturbine generation with a case study provided by Horizon Power Systems of a natural gas fueled microturbine at one of their customers Tundra Oil and Gas in Manitoba Canada.
Vitality Energy is pleased to continue it's research into technologies that help companies and organizations reduce energy cost and improve operational efficiency. This post is the first post of a series of case studies into the power of Microturbine technology.
