||Orange Housing Authority
Metro Energy Solutions was contracted to build a
cogeneration plant for the Orange Housing Authority.
Metro Energy entered into a 12 year power purchase
agreement with the Orange Housing Authority to
provide electricity and hot water at a discount of 12%
off of the current rate tariff. Metro Energy Solutions
designed, built, owns and operates the 70 kW
cogeneration system for the purpose of displacing a
portion of the Housing Authority's electricity and
thermal energy cost savings.
The Orange Housing Authority had to make no
capital investment. In this project Metro Energy
Solutions provided all of the capital and will also
provide all of the maintenance during the 12-year
term of the contract.
For the next 12 years the Housing Authority will
receive a guaranteed 12% discount on all electric and
thermal energy provided by the cogeneration system.
The new cogeneration system provides 505,000 kWh
per year for the term of the agreement and over
$65,000 in energy cost savings.
In addition, Metro Energy completed an investment
grade facility assessment and identified multiple
energy and water conservation measures. The
projects are slated for installation in the near future.
