DG and CHP are two of the hottest acronyms in industrial power generation—as well as in environmental preservation. That’s because these two systems work together extremely well and allow businesses and industries to handle their fuel needs more efficiently while also remaining eco-friendly and profitable. Let’s take a look at why DG and CHP systems are so well suited to “green” companies. Definitions of DG and CHP DG stands for Distributed Generation, which refers to the on-site production of electric power. Rather than relying on the traditional model of power plants and electric grids, a facility can completely control its […]

Green engineering is all around you. Small-scale versions for example include items at Starbucks that are eco-friendly and biodegradable. Larger versions include newer cars that run more cleanly. NASCAR, for example is a leader in green engineering, taking the time to redesign their buildings and stadiums to be more efficient, use less energy, and to reduce greenhouse gas emissions where they can. Retrofitting a commercial or industrial facility with new technology is a great way to make them more energy efficient. At Polaris our engineers work hard to make our clients’ operations more sustainable and eco-friendly, which in turn translates […]

Electricity is so much a part of modern life that most people take it for granted—but when it comes to industrial business, it might be time to rethink your assumptions. Traditionally, electricity for industrial operations came from utility plants and pubic grids, which may seem convenient but can have a number of hidden pitfalls. In recent years, more and more companies have chosen greater power autonomy, through processes such as distributed power generation. Distributed Vs. Traditional Generation Distributed power generation is a deviation from the conventional power model. Typically, electricity is generated in massive quantities at dedicated power plants, and […]

Over the years there have been several different methods that have been developed to provide needed electricity and energy sources. Natural gas has become a dominating choice for creating electricity, and as such new uses for this fossil fuel have also emerged. With growing technologies and knowledge has come the increased need for new methods of creating efficient energy sources, and propane, LPG and SNG have become noted sources for new energy supplies. Take a look at the growth of natural gas usage, the new power generation method, and how propane, LPG and SNG serve the emerging distributed power generation […]

As many natural resources continue to dwindle, numerous individuals and businesses are in search of alternative energy sources as a viable means of production. This is particularly true in nations within the Caribbean and throughout Latin America because cities there heavily rely on energy sources that are powered by oil, diesel and additional distillates. The crude oil market is reputable for being unpredictable, so if the cost for diesel goes through an unexpected rise, cities end up paying a fortune for a basic resource. Fortunately, these economic issues can be avoided entirely by switching over to a distributed power generation […]
