Capstone gets 2 MW order in the Caribbean
By Mike Brezonick03 May 2022
Capstone Green Energy Corp. announced that E-Finity Distributed Generation, Capstone’s exclusive distributor for the Mid-Atlantic, Southeastern United States and the Caribbean, has secured an order for two Capstone C1000S microturbine systems for a government water authority in the Caribbean.
The systems will provide emergency standby power to several pumping stations on one of the region’s island communities. The 2 MW system is scheduled to be commissioned towards the end of calendar year 2022.
“Delivering clean, reliable, low-cost power to the Caribbean is a fundamental priority for Capstone and our partner E-Finity right now,” said Darren Jamison, Capstone’s president and CEO. “The high cost of power, low grid reliability, and the desire to be green, make the Caribbean a growing market for our innovative products and services.”
Fueled by natural gas, the microturbines will operate in stand-alone mode, providing critical power to the pumping station. The station will have the ability to automatically switch between the utility grid and microturbines for power generation. This will help the local authority run the microturbines during grid outages or weather events and also peak shave to save money on utility costs.
