Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Fact Sheet Series: Correctional Facilities

Correctional facilities are critical infrastructure that must function reliably to maintain the safety of inmates, staff, and the public at large. A resilient onsite source of thermal heat and electrical power can help correctional facilities stay in operation in circumstances in which grid power is unreliable (e.g., during a natural disaster). Combined heat and power (CHP) can efficiently meet the energy demands and resilience requirements of a modern correctional facility, providing electricity, hot water, and space heating and cooling during both normal grid operation and major outage events.
