Capstone Executes a 15 Year Comprehensive Service Contract for a Renewable Fuel 800KW System at a California Landfill

·4 min read

VAN NUYS, CA / ACCESSWIRE / February 1, 2021 / Capstone Turbine Corporation (www.capstoneturbine.com) (NASDAQ:CPST), the world's leading manufacturer of clean technology microturbine energy systems, announced today that Cal Microturbine, Capstone's exclusive distributor for California, Hawaii & Nevada and nonexclusive for Oregon and Washington (www.calmicroturbine.com), signed a new 15-year Factory Protection Plan (FPP) long-term comprehensive service contract for a C800S Capstone Microturbine (800 kilowatts) installed at a landfill in Southern California.

Cal Microturbine originally commissioned the "CR" (Capstone Renewable) Signature Series C800S microturbine system in January 2020. The Capstone microturbine based system operates 24x7, converting landfill-generated methane, which would otherwise be flared, into electricity. The Capstone FPP will provide the customer with fixed, predictable costs for scheduled, and unscheduled parts requirements for the next 15 years.

Capstone Renewable Microturbines Help the Green Economy & Environment

"Projects like this demonstrate the broad array of green energy solutions that Capstone has to offer, all anchored by our innovative microturbine technology," stated Darren Jamison, President and Chief Executive Officer of Capstone Turbine Corporation. "By using gas produced from a landfill to produce energy and reduce emissions, Capstone contributes to the growth of the California green economy," added Mr. Jamison.

Capstone's innovative FPP is a comprehensive maintenance program designed to give financial peace of mind to Capstone customers by providing product life cycle costs at a fixed rate for both scheduled and unscheduled maintenance for the life of the microturbine system. Additionally, the recently updated FPP protects microturbine customers from potentially dramatic future increases in life cycle costs associated with changes in replacement spare parts pricing, commodity price increases, import tariffs, and interest rate changes.

"With this long-term maintenance contract for this critically important renewable project, Cal Microturbine now has a 36 megawatt fleet under Capstone FPP contracts, with potential additional new contracts in the pipeline," stated Jeff Foster, Capstone's Senior Vice President of Customer Service and Product Development. "This makes Cal Microturbine's fleet our second largest FPP fleet globally," concluded Mr. Foster.
