Explore our library of global case studies to learn how Capstone microturbines are aligning with businesses across various markets to improve their energy consumption through on-site power production. Since 1988, Capstone has shipped thousands of clean-and-green microturbines to customers around the world, logging millions of cumulative operating hours in the field. After all, Capstone is committed to improving the efficiency of the world’s energy infrastructure and reducing pollutants and greenhouse gas emissions.
The installation and operation of one Capstone C65 microturbine unit has helped reduce electricity usage at Swineline Farm, an anaerobic waste treatment facility. "The technology is top notch. I was sold immediately the day I saw how it connects to the grid — how easily it connects — and how little maintenance there is on the whole plant. Installation of this turbine has reduced my electricity usage by a good 30 percent, up to 35 percent. The farm is a very small farm when you are looking at effluent production. We have only got one turbine installed but by getting the process more effective it could get to the point that I can reduce my electricity usage by even more."
