While re-developing an old warehouse site into their modern multi-purpose office and conference venue, Planetshakers discovered that the grid could not meet their total power requirements.  They installed five natural gas fueled C65 Capstone microturbines combined with the grid for powering the site.  Also waste heat is recovered to hot water for domestic hot water and space heating.
