Cogenra Harvests Both PV and Heat on Rooftops: Cogenra Solar is a distributed solar cogeneration company that

Cogenra Solar is a distributed solar cogeneration company that combines photovoltaic (PV) electricity production and heat collection to deliver electricity and hot water for commercial, industrial and institutional applications. We've reported on them before as they explored ground-mounted usage (a solar cogen project at the Sonoma Wine Company ) and the Heat and Power Purchase Agreement (HPPA). The firm has just announced the completion of a 75-kilowatt solar cogeneration project at General Hydroponics, a Santa Rosa, California-based manufacturer of indoor agricultural systems and nutrients. General Hydroponics , founded in 1976, is a leader in the home hydroponics industry. The firm has a significant gas demand for heating water to make nutrient blends and expects a payback of less than five years, according to its CEO.
