Earlier this week, regional grid operator PJM ordered blackouts 1 to prevent widespread power outages in Ohio, Michigan, Indiana and Pennsylvania, likely avoiding an event similar to 20032.

What would happen to your facility if you lose power and don’t have back-up power generation to ride through the event?  What if the event is longer than a few hours? Combined Heat and Power (CHP) systems, driven by natural gas fired Capstone Turbines, allow continuous operation in the event of a power outage.

GEM Energy specializes in engineering CHP system solutions that address power reliability issues. Many of our customers have faced risks to their businesses that have been successfully mitigated.
