  1. Steam (or heat equivalent) assumed at 150 psig (10.3 barg), saturated conditions. However, the gas turbine based CHP can easily generate higher or lower pressure steam with or without superheat, hot water, drying, and/or cooling.
  2. Actual plant savings can vary dramatically based on location and application factors. Contact Solar for details on your specific project. This estimate is for information only and does not constitute Solar's agreement to offer a firm proposal in the future.
