FPL Studies Microturbine Technology At Tomoka Correctional Institution

fpl_logo.gifFPL Group Inc (FPL) announced that it is working in cooperation with the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) and the state's Tomoka Correctional Institution to study microturbine energy technology. The project places a microturbine at the Tomoka Correctional Institution in Daytona Beach.

Microturbines are small combustion generators that efficiently create heat and electricity on-site, conserving grid power. About the size of a refrigerator, the natural gas fueled microturbine at Tomoka has extremely low emissions of smog-forming NOx and other pollutants compared to other energy sources. The Tomoka project is grid-connected to FPL's electric system. It will heat water for the laundry area at the correctional facility. [ more ]
