Peaking power plants, also known as peaker plants, and occasionally just “peakers,” are power plants that generally run only when there is a high demand, known as peak demand, for electricity. Because they supply power only occasionally, the power supplied commands a much higher price per kilowatt hour than base load power. Peak load power plants are used in combination with base load power plants, which supply a dependable and consistent amount of electricity, meeting the minimum demand.

Microgrid & Microturbine Power Trends

Microgrid & Microturbine Power Trends

There are interesting developments happening with microgrids these days. Utilities are adding them to stabilize their grids, and communities are developing a peer-to-peer consumer energy trading system to buy and sell electricity generated by their solar systems.

Many communities are considering, researching, or implementing microgrid solutions. The underlying rationale often involves complex business, operational, and economic issues. See our FREE Special Report: Understanding Microgrids. Download it now!

Microgrids have also become the hottest concept as alternatives to the aging utility grid—passing up

Keeping the Plant Running

Keeping the Plant Running

Disasters such as Superstorm Sandy and Hurricane Katrina have taught water utilities that emergency planning and well-maintained backup systems are critical to limiting the devastating impact of plant failures. But what are the components of a good plan andmaintenance program? We posed that question to water system managers who survived
