Cogeneration is a large, industrial system that lets no energy go to waste. Using turbines, natural gas is burned and creates heat that is captured and steamed in a boiler. The steam is used for industrial purposes, or it can power another turbine to produce even more electricity.


Cogeneration produces power from a natural gas turbine by using the excess heat for other industrial processes.


This energy source allows us to power approximately 430,000 homes.
