In this example a CHP system is installed at a cost of the incremental investment of 16 8 million for the. 21 million compared to the cost of a standard gas CHP system provides an annual net savings of 2 4. boiler costing 4 2 million 34 However the overall million In addition the additional investment offers. economics show that the incremental cost more than an internal rate of return of 10 percent and a payback. pays for itself in terms of electricity savings resulting period of less than 7 years and an internal rate of. from the CHP system As shown in Table 1 both the return IRR of 10 percent. new boiler and the CHP system would serve the same. steam demand 76 8 million BTU hr and provide Comparing CHP to Back up Generators Many. the same thermal output during the year 614 400 facilities utilize back up diesel generators to provide. million BTUs annually However the CHP system power during grid outages These provide power and. also provides power generation 106 4 million KWh keep critical systems operational Another option. annually for facilities installing a diesel backup generator to. provide outage protection is to design that capability.
