What Is A Gas Turbine?

A gas turbine runs on natural gas. They burn clean with no particulate in the exhaust. That heat can be used to heat (or cool) facilities.

Engineering Marvels

These units truly are breathtaking. They have one moving component – the turbine itself, and they require only 8 hours of maintenance a year.

Clean

Most grid/utility electric is coal, which is not ‘green’. Natural gas is the cleanest fossil fuel, which is why it is widely used to power public transit buses in large cities. By using natural

gas rather than electric power, you are reducing your carbon footprint in most cases.

Practical

In part of California, the power company is already having trouble meeting the electricity demand, and the prices reflect that reality. Grid electric is approaching $.17 per kW hour and could go as high as $.30 per kWh (ouch).

Powerful

Gas turbines (or microturbines) are the most powerful form of clean energy available today. Efficiencies of about 85% are achievable because of the waste heat recovery component of the systems, called cogeneration. These systems cut energy bills, generate reliable power and give the quickest return on investment of any energy system on the market – by far.

Dependable

Many people don’t know it, but because electric lines are above ground, they’re much more vulnerable during a disaster than gas. Gas lines also have bypass routes. Bottom line: if you can’t afford to go down, you want a gas turbine. Microturbines are also used for IT Data Center, Hospital, and other infrastructure (Cell Tower) equipment.

Financing Offered

5 or 10 years offered through Honor Enterprise Financing. Your total operating costs are between 30% and 60% of what you’re paying now for electric. All maintenance costs are covered.

You Own And Can Re-Deploy The Unit

After the financing term, this portable, clean, on-site, powerhouse is yours. Move it to…wherever.

Power to Scale

We can offer on-site power between 250 kW and 1.3 mW, freeing you from the arbitrary pricing of the electric company.

Use Case

If you’re drawing 1.3 mW from PG&E right now (if you’re lucky enough to have a need like that met by the electric utility), you’re paying about $150,000 a month; we can cut your power bill in half (natural gas fees and financing fees together), and reduce your carbon emissions.

Free Yourself From Arbitrary Utility Company Cost Increases

Get ahead of rising electrical costs. Many experts predict PG&E prices to go as high as $.30 per kW (double what it is now).

Become Power Independent And Cut Energy Costs 20-70%!

You have high power demands, MBS and Flex Energy can help. We can deliver on-site, gas-turbine powered, grid-isolated, grid parallel, or dual-mode backup power solutions of between 300 kW and 1,300 kW, or 1.3 megawatts, in a matter of months, for a cost that averages about half of what the electric utility charges, with finance charges included.
