After all, Capstone is committed to improving the efficiency of the world’s energy infrastructure and reducing pollutants and greenhouse gas emissions.
As part of its energy savings initiatives, management of the 5-star hotels, which sit side-by-side on a protected stretch of swim-friendly beach in the Riviera Maya, decided to install a new power supply that was reliable, efficient and could lower both energy costs and emissions. In late 2011, a liquid-propane fueled dual-mode C1000 Capstone Power Package® was installed in a combined cooling, heating and power application. "We considered installing additional generators for peak generation plus solar energy for heating of the pools. But when learned that the C1000 could lower our energy consumption while provide us with additional services—such as hot water and steam for laundry services—by utilizing waste heat, we knew we had found the answer we were looking for.
