Missoula Waste Treatment
In 2018 Highland West Energy commissioned a 2G Agenitor 220 kW biogas/natural gas blend CHP system. Designed to meet the City of Missoula’s growing energy needs. This biogas CHP system runs completely on methane gas or on natural gas when more power is needed.
AmericInn – Rexburg needed to replace their boiler system with something more reliable and cost-effective. Highland West Energy installed two Lochinvar XRGI 22.5 kW systems that supply the hotel with 66% of its electrical and 100% of its hot water demands. With this system in place, the hotel saves over $500 a month on utilities.
The Riverside Hotel
The Riverside Hotel needed to replace their old boiler system that was beginning to fail. Highland West Energy determined that a 2G patruus 400 kW CHP unit would be their best fit to deliver 88% of the hotel’s electrical load and 78% of its thermal demand. This unit will deliver over $3 million in savings over the next fifteen years.
The Towers II student housing project was a new build. Knowing how competitive the housing market is in Rexburg, the owners wanted to offer a utility solution that was ultra-reliable and inexpensive since the students pay their own utilities. Highland West Energy installed Yanmar 5 kW and 10 kW micro CHP units that keep the power cheap, hot water in excess, and even sustain a snowmelt system under the building’s walkways.
