Burns designed and integrated a four-part system to provide supplemental power, heating and cooling for PGW’s 180,000 square foot building, including:
Burns provided innovative ideas and engineering solutions to design a system that successfully:
With its successful implementation, this project achieved its objectives of reducing PGW’s annual energy costs by $130,000, while demonstrating the promise for CHP systems to produce clean, efficient power.
This project was one of 14 in Pennsylvania that was recognized with a 2012 American Council of Engineering Companies of Pennsylvania Diamond Award for Engineering Excellence.
