Profile
The City of Chicago has committed to providing 1.5 billion kWh of electricity from cogeneration by 2010. The City is looking first at its own facilities and evaluating the potential for cogeneration at North Park Village, a city-owned, mixed-use and residential campus for seniors. A study showed that the facility could use cogeneration to provide 3.5 MW of electricity, which would cover 100 percent of the building's needs and pay for itself within five years. The City also has plans to assist private facilities by conducting a study to identify economic and regulatory issues that affect the viability of CHP projects. The City seeks to maximize the considerable potential of this clean energy source to enhance reliability and increase economic competitiveness.
