The City of Grande Prairie has installed a Combined Heat and Power units (CHP) at the Eastlink Centre. The units use natural gas to generate electricty, waste heat is captured to heat the pool. The project is preforming as predicted and is saving on utility costs.
How it Works
A CHP uses natural gases to produce electricity for the ELC. Exhaust heat produced during combustion is captured by a heat exchanger and increases the efficiency of the boiler used for heating the pool.
The CHP Dashboard allows you to see the energy produced and the energy saved. Take a live look at it here.
