Alcor Energy provides its customers with clean, redundant, and reliable power. Functioning as a private power producer,
Alcor Energy owns and operates Combined Heat and Power (CHP) and Distributed Generation (DG) systems.
Combined Heat and Power, also referred to as cogeneration, is a form of Distributed Generation and involves the production of
electricity and thermal energy from a single system at the point of consumption. In conventional generation, approximately two-thirds
of the useful energy of a unit of fuel is lost up the smoke stack as waste heat. The remaining one-third is sent to the grid as electricity.
By capturing and utilizing the waste heat at the point of generation, CHP systems can significantly reduce a customer’s utility spend and greenhouse gas emissions. Our CHP system’s waste heat can be used for steam, hot water, space heating, space cooling, and dehumidification.
CHP systems are highly energy efficient and have been proven to substantially increase the quality and reliability of power. This not
only leads to greater energy security for customers but also helps to reduce our nation’s dependence on imported sources of fuel.
Energy efficiency and energy security are the primary reasons that the Department of Energy and the EPA are heavily invested in
promoting the adoption of CHP.
Alcor’s management has extensive experience in aerospace turbine engine operation, maintenance, manufacturing, and repair,
allowing Alcor to deliver generating systems at greatly reduced capital outlays. Alcor’s typical installation size is 500Kws to 3Mws,
but based upon customers’ needs, Alcor can configure systems of larger size.
Alcor’s solutions enable its customers to lower their energy bills, reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Because Alcor owns and
operates the installed CHP generating equipment, there is no requirement for its customers to fund the system’s development.
Alcor’s market strategy is as follows:
- Sell reliable and redundant power through Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) or lease agreements to industrial or institutional customers with high electrical and thermal needs, such as food processors, chemical companies, biofuel producers, hospitals, casinos, hotels, etc.
- Lease its systems to customers that “flare gas” as by-products of their processes, such as wastewater treatment facilities,
landfills, and "stranded gas wells," allowing them to use their waste products to power their facilities and sell excess
electricity back to the grid.
- Partner with other private power producers to provide the turbine generating capacity on a leased basis.
