Berlin Power Plant Invests in Cat Gas Generator
The Berlin Power Plant, located in Maryland replaced “engine two” at their power plant located on William Street with a custom built Cat Natural Gas Generator.
The plant is planning to install a natural gas line to the buildings as part of a company-wide initiative to convert all engines to natural gas. The conversion to natural gas will save the company $0.50 per gallon and these savings will ultimately be passed to the town ratepayers.
Having gas-powered generators enables the department to conduct peak-shaving events which saves the town’s ratepayers money by using local power generation.
The generators allow the plant to produce energy for high electric demands which save on the high electric costs by using the power grid.
