Micro-Combined Heat and Power (Micro-CHP) technology brings onsite power generation to homes and businesses. Local generation means convenient, high-efficiency energy at a low cost with minimal waste. Thanks to propane fuel, micro-CHP brings these advantages to locations that have limited access to natural gas, such as rural communities, and areas with poor power supply.

Using multiple case studies, this course covers the hows and whys of micro-CHP systems. We'll detail how power is generated, the best uses for it, and why it makes sense in a wide range of locations and situations. We'll also include limitations and how they are overcome.
