Unlike a backup generator, PowerPlant is your primary power source and runs continuously to produce electricity and heat fueled by clean natural gas, renewable natural gas, or propane.
Our current electric grid
Traditional electric transmission & distribution is increasingly unreliable due to extreme weather, intermittent renewable generation, and aging infrastructure.
10+ weather disaster events with losses of over a billion dollars occurred YTD in 2021. In addition to extreme weather downtime, businesses average at least one 4-hour power outage annually.
70% of power transformers, 60% of circuit breakers, and 70% of transmission lines are over 25 years old as of 2015. Legacy infrastructure wasn’t designed to support the current electricity demands or intermittent renewable energy sources.
Approximately 5% – 15% of electricity is lost in transmission and distribution, causing inefficiency in delivery. Rising demand charges are a significant component of electric costs driving businesses towards alternative solutions.

Grids vs. Backup
Unlike a backup generator, PowerPlant is your primary power source and runs continuously to produce electricity and heat fueled by clean natural gas, renewable natural gas, or propane. GRIDIRON engines are purposely built for continuous CHP (combined heat and power) operations with minimum service required. The micro combined heat and power units (mCHP) produce electricity to power your business, while captured heat gets repurposed for hot water, hot air, or other processes requiring heat.
