Capstone's Value Proposition

Capstone MicroTurbine solutions help you improve your operation by putting you in control of your energy costs. Advanced engineering and more than 100 patents put the Capstone MicroTurbines in a class of their own. By integrating an aero-based turbine engine, a magnetic generator, advanced power electronics, and air bearing technology, Capstone MicroTurbines are an ideal solution to today’s distributed generation needs. Our MicroTurbines have just one moving part, no gearbox or other mechanicals, and use no lubricants or hazardous materials, resulting in minimal maintenance while providing reliable, dependable performance.

Capstone MicroTurbines can operate on a variety of gaseous or liquid fuels and emit very low emissions, making Capstone a clean, green, reliable source of energy. The MicroTurbines can be installed individually or multi-packed and can function in parallel or independent from the grid. Our MicroTurbines are compact, lightweight, affordable, quiet and provide a robust and reliable solution to your energy needs.
