  • USA : Toledo Museum of Art Combined Heat and Power System Marks Energy-Saving Milestone
    April 13, 2015
    A combined heat and power (CHP) system at the Toledo Museum of Art has surpassed 400,000 hours of operation - contributing to the Museum's overall savings of 80 percent of electricity use per year.

    The four C65 Capstone microturbines on-site supply heating and electricity through cogeneration. The microturbine system supplies the museum with 260kW of continuous electricity and 1.6 million btu of heat, equal to the amount of electricity consumed by 250 homes.

    As one of the few museums nationwide to implement comprehensive sustainable practices, the Toledo Museum of Art is a model for other museums, arenas and large facilities that require significant amounts of energy.
