Project Development and Sales
VPS is a project developer, not simply an equipment seller. VPS works directly with end users in a multitude of market verticals including Hospitality, Healthcare, Education, Government, Commercial Office, Multi-Unit Residential, Industrial, Biogas, Agricultural, and Critical Power and Data Center. VPS performs feasibility studies based on deep energy data analysis in order to assess the viability of CHP for each customer facility, prepares and presents an economic and performance analysis for the customer, assembles the design/build project team, and leads the project development cycle from first touch to project close.
VPS has technical and engineering resources to size and design the CHP equipment, incorporate heat recovery equipment for hot water, steam and chilled water heat recovery, and integrate the CHP system into the facility’s HVAC and electrical systems. We have relationships with third party suppliers of hot water and steam generation equipment and absorption chillers that we leverage to design the most efficient total system for the customer. VPS also designs, builds and installs custom control packages.
VPS performs startup and commissioning services of the microturbine equipment and controls programming and integration. VPS also provides after-market service and maintenance through our field service team through both long-term contracts and on a time-and-materials basis. We inventory spare parts in our leased office/warehouse space throughout our territory. The Capstone Factory Protection Plan is a long-term, fixed priced Parts and Labor service contract offered for up to twenty years, giving customers complete control over operating costs of their microturbine plant.
VPS teams with highly qualified EPC firms to deliver a turnkey project to the customer. The EPC scope can include the entire project from pre-design through to plant commissioning. VPS will select the appropriate EPC partners for each job.
VPS can offer several financing options including Energy Service Agreements, Power Purchase Agreements and leases to customers wishing to enjoy savings and reliability without making the capital investment.
