Capstone Green Energy Corporation, a global leader in carbon reduction and on-site resilient green energy solutions, announced that Horizon Power Systems, Capstone’s exclusive distributor for the Rocky Mountain States, Western Canada, Oklahoma, and Arizona, secured a follow-on order for two Capstone C1000 Signature Series microturbines. The order is scheduled to be commissioned during the third quarter of 2023.
“Capstone microturbines create loyal customers, and this order is a great example. This customer has been using Capstone Green Energy microturbine technology since 2010, and continues to return for additional systems,” said Darren Jamison, President and Chief Executive Officer of Capstone Green Energy. “They have implemented our low emission systems at multiple, remote, unstaffed facilities across their operations in Wyoming. Capstone microturbines continue to deliver reliable, low-emission power where the customer needs it most.”
The microturbine will power a remote natural gas compression facility and run on high-pressure natural gas (HPNG). The customer indicated that it selected Capstone based on its ongoing, positive experiences with Capstone products. Their current equipment has operated continuously for several years, despite being subjected to harsh conditions and extreme weather events.
“The customer’s current fleet of 15 microturbines have an average 99% uptime,” said Sam Henry, President of Horizon Power Systems. “The company knows the reliability and low maintenance of microturbine-based energy systems. Even with the catastrophic storms that have rolled through the Basin this year, the microturbine fleet has maintained its near-perfect uptime. Capstone microturbines meet Wyoming’s stringent air quality rules and make permitting very easy,” added Henry.

Solar power has been increasingly popular over the years as it can reduce electric bills, take some control over how electricity is getting generated, and have a solar system that can survive blackout, all in a financially responsible way. BLUETTI is about to release its new PV420 solar panel in Europe and UK, making a big push into the solar energy industry throughout this continent.
PV420 delivers the most power compared to the solar panel lineups that BLUETTI has ever made. It features astonishing solar power of up to 400W and a max 23,4% high-converting rate, so recharging the power station doesn’t have to be time-consuming. It’s capable of capturing about 2kWh solar power with 6 hours of prime sunshine, which is enough to run essential devices for hours.
BLUETTI equips PV420 with monocrystalline solar cells and multi-layered ETFE to ensure better light transmittance, higher conversion efficiency, and a longer lifespan. The ETFE coating surface has a rating of IP65 to shrug off water splashes, scratches, and dust, making it ideal for working even under extreme weather conditions.
Many factors can affect the solar intake of the solar panels, such as sunlight intensity, shading, panel orientation, etc. PV420 has an easy-to-setup kickstand that can be adjusted to the optimal orientation to make the most of the sunshine. There’s no need to rely exclusively on the grid to have the power station charged at home or on the go.
PV420 is perfectly compatible with BLUETTI power stations, including AC200P, AC200MAX, AC300, AC500, EB150, EB240, EP500, and EP500Pro, as well as other third-party power stations which have MC4 connectors and consistent voltage output with PV420.
From the very beginning, BLUETTI has tried to stay true to a sustainable future through green energy storage solutions for both indoor and outdoor use while delivering an exceptional eco-friendly experience for our homes and our world. That's why BLUETTI makes its presence in 70+ countries and is trusted by millions of customers across the globe.

Canadian Solar Inc., a solar technology and renewable energy company, has recently announced that its three solar power projects in Japan, particularly in Gunma Takasaki, Oita Kitsuki, and Yamaguchi Hofu, have reached their commercial operation in early 2023, totaling about 42 MWp.
Canadian Solar's bifacial BiHiKu modules powered these projects. The grid operators from the respective areas purchased the energy generated from the projects through Japan's feed-in-tariff program. This purchase would continue for about 19 years at the rates of JPY32 (US$0.24), JPY14.49 (US$0.11), and JPY14.25 (US$0.10) per kWh in approximation. The projects would produce about 53,000 MWh of renewable energy. This energy will power over 15,000 households and avoid approximately 24,000 tons of carbon emissions per year. It is delivering more clean, safe and affordable solar energy to the world. Of the total project pipeline, 2.9 GWp of projects are in late-stage development and have secured energy offtake agreements. In addition, it has a geographically diversified utility-scale solar power project pipeline of around 10 GWp.
Chairman and CEO of Canadian Solar Inc., Dr. Shawn Qu said, "We are delighted to be part of the green transformation that Japan is going through with these additions to our portfolio. Our teams worked closely with the local communities and governments to bring these projects to fruition. Working closely with the local community to cultivate a sustainable long-term relationship is one of our ESG sustainable development goals. Canadian Solar's Sustainability Report provides a detailed discussion on our ESG goals, targets and approaches."
