FirstEnergy offers incentives for Combined Heat and Power (CHP) systems for commercial, industrial, governmental, and institutional customers in its service territory in Maryland. The program supports the Maryland EmPower Efficiency Act's goal of 15% reduction in per-capita energy consumption by 2015.
The CHP system should be sized solely for on-site energy use by the customer and should not be exporting energy under its normal operational conditions. CHP systems can be fueled by either biogas or natural gas. The system must have designed efficiency of at least 65%.
The program offers three levels of incentives.
Total incentives are capped at $1.25 million per project. To qualify for the incentive, the project must be operational by December 31, 2017.
