Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced $20 million to support clean-energy projects that will provide continuous power and heat during power outages …
CHP projects, also known as "cogeneration," involve the capture of heat produced during electricity generation and the use of it to provide on-site heat or hot water to buildings, for manufacturing or for other purposes.
These installations are capable of achieving higher levels of fuel efficiency by simultaneously producing both electric and useful thermal energy at the facility where the energy is needed. […]
This program, administered by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), will only fund CHP systems that can continue to operate during a grid outage. In addition, all applicants in flood zones must install systems in locations that would be "high and dry" in the wake of a worst-case flood scenario.
