Put a power plant on your property. Reduce carbon emissions. Pay per fixed price contract. 

The Model

Put electric power generation on-site. Run renewable natural gas, solar, wind, or hydrogen. Only call on the grid for supplemental and backup resources. 

We tailor your solution for baseload or peak shaving per your specific requirements. Our analysis of your load data and billing informs which approach will maximize financial saving and emissions reductions.



  • Baseload Prime Power. Provided on a cents per kilowatt-hour basis. By taking your baseload power supply on-site, 'behind the meter,' Public Energy gives you a price hedge for this block of power against increases in grid costs.
  • Baseload Combined Heat and Power (CHP). Provide on a cents per kilowatt-hour basis, with heat included in the electricity price. Only a marginal cost increase is required to capture heat to offset your operational thermal needs.
  • Peak Shaving / Demand Response. Based on a fixed monthly price that maximizes your savings under your demand response/curtailment program rules. We design to clip your peak or take your entire load 'behind the meter' for the peak based on your needs.
  • Improved Power Quality. Stop paying for energy you're not using. We'll surface lower power quality leaks and identify ways to eliminate them. 

The burden of managing grid price uncertainty and load curtailment becomes a thing of the past–you are in control of power generation on your side of the utility meter.



  • Untether from the uncertainty of power prices.
  • Keep energy (generation and consumption) local.
  • Reduce grid charges (and strain on the grid).
  • Eliminate blackouts and brownouts.
  • Outsource equipment maintenance.
  • Outsource energy supply R+D.
  • Reduce CO2 with a multi-fuel engine.

The Module

Your complete generation plant arrives as a prefabricated, containerized module. No on-site plant construction is required. 

The power quality (voltage and frequency) meets or exceeds all international standards. Generators feed directly into the plant load without the system losses you’re required to pay for on the grid.


  1. 1


    Our modular, scalable solution lets you add new 1 - 2 MW shipping containers as needs grow.

    Units are stackable and can be outfitted with support structures (think table legs) to allow access underneath.

  2. 2



    Island Connection

    “Islanded solutions insulate you from sustained grid outages (storms, car accidents, planned maintenance) and momentary disturbances (lightning, brownouts).

    If the plant needs to shift back to the grid, not even a momentary outage would occur. We use an ATS (Automatic Transfer Switch) that operates within milliseconds to ensure uninterrupted service.


    Parallel Connection

    Our grid ‘parallel’ solutions allow the power flows to take multiple paths simultaneously. If one goes down, another path remains open. 

  3. 3


    We identify potential permitting implications and environmental impacts in our analysis phase.

    Our fuel solutions comply with all state, provincial or municipal regulatory emission standards and requirements by design.

    We complete the required noise and air emissions modelling and assessments. Based on the results of the studies, we’ll adjust noise abatement measures to comply with regulatory requirements.

    Our standard 1 MW natural gas solution, for example, operates in the order of 65 decibels, measured at 30 feet (10 metres) from the containerized generator. This is compliant with the regulations in most jurisdictions.

    The noise emissions are primarily from the cooling fan, not the engine, so if additional noise abatement is required for your jurisdiction, alternatives include:

    • Adjusting the location of the generator
    • Adjusting the cooling fan size/speeds, and
    • Installation of noise barriers (e.g., walls or berms)

    We determine the environmental feasibility on a case-by-case basis. And we bear the cost, too.

Carbon reduction. Energy independence. Lower cost electricty. Now.

The “road” in your energy transition roadmap starts here.
