The Metro Group’s National Mechanical Division has been installing new burners and boilers and assisting clients improve their fuel efficiency and reduce their carbon footprint for decades. All of these complex jobs are assigned a dedicated Project Manager to take responsiblilty for the entire project from start to finish.
Many buildings looking to become more fuel efficient and reduce their carbon emissions and large carbon footprint may be candidates for a Co-Generation (Co-Gen) conversion project as well. These systems are extremely efficient, burning gas to produce electricity for the building and provide heat for hot water and comfort heating. In addition, a Co-Gen unit can function as a back-up generator during power failures and in certain instances may produce enough energy to sell back to the electrical grid. Some co-gen projects have seen reductions of over 50,000 tons of carbon dioxide over the system’s useful lifetime. That’s equivalent to removing 10,000 passenger vehicles’ worth of CO2.
