Combined Heat and Power (CHP) & Microgrid Developments
involving gas fired reciprocating engines, gas fired turbines,
solar (photovoltaic-PV), wind and battery back-up systems.
Seguro Energy's power projects strategically focus on Combined Heat and Power (CHP) and microgrid developments. We Build, Own, Operate, and Maintain (BOOM) projects involving gas fired reciprocating engines, gas fired turbines, solar (photovoltaic, PV), wind, and battery back-up systems. These systems are available in various configurations and integrated with a singular control system to meet specific needs. Seguro Energy utilizes its strategic alliance with Caterpillar Electric Power to successfully complete and insure long term reliability of its power projects. See Alliances.
Our projects primarily range between 5 and 50 MW but our technology and capability scales to larger installations depending on location, type, and other determinants that meet our core criteria. Our customers include commercial and industrial facilities and installations, college and university campuses, food processing, mining, district energy providers, healthcare, paper mills, primary metal processing, hospitality, waste heat to power (WHP), chemical plants, and refineries.
CHP is an efficient and clean approach to generating electric power and useful thermal energy from a single fuel source. Instead of purchasing electricity from the distribution grid and separately burning fuel in an on-site furnace or boiler to produce thermal energy, an industrial or commercial facility can use combined heat and power to provide both services in one, energy-efficient step.
CHP is a clean energy solution that directly addresses a number of national priorities, including improving U.S. competitiveness by: reducing energy operating costs, increasing energy efficiency, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, enhancing our energy infrastructure, improving energy security and resiliency, and “growing” the U.S. economy.

A microgrid is a localized group of electricity sources and loads that operate connected to and synchronous with the traditional wide area synchronous grid (macrogrid), but can also disconnect to "island mode" — and function autonomously as physical or economic conditions dictate. A microgrid can effectively integrate various sources of distributed generation (DG), especially Renewable Energy Sources (RES), can supply emergency power, and can change between island and connected macrogrid modes.
