In addition to the environmental benefits of operating highly efficient cogeneration plants ASV’s economical side is one of the most exciting in the whole market environment of distributed generation. In a matching system environment, i.e. at constant annual heat consumption and a high degree of internal current consumption, unrivaled economic calculations and short payback periods can be achieved.
Income and Earnings
The produced and self-used power can return regular revenues. It is important that the CHP comes to high running times of the year. The feed into the public grid surplus electricity is paid for by regional energy supply companies (utilities) and distribution system operators (DSOs). Since the majority of the electricity generated by the CHP plant is consumed in the object itself, the operator can be credited to the money thereby saving electricity costs.
Energy grants by the state
Furthermore, the operators will benefit from the CHP bonus, the current amount is 5.41 Cents (€) for 100 % of the electricity generated. A fuel credit is also available. In addition, there are regional CHP funding programs, as well as the mini-CHP support program in which grants of up to 4,375, – € are possible.
Besides reducing tax breaks even further over the payback period. On average, optimal planned cogeneration projects payback periods can be achieved over 3 – 5 years, calculated on the CHP investment costs. In an imputed useful life of 10 years, there are thus significant gain opportunities.
Below, you can perform a quick check on your energy demands and if the ASV-CHP can operate ecologically and economically.
