Opening of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library’s Air Force One Pavilion

The CHP system consists of sixteen 60kW Capstone MicroTurbines® that run on clean-burning natural gas and provide 95% of the electricity for both the new Air Force One Pavilion and the original 100,000-square-foot Ronald Reagan Library, both located in Simi Valley, California. The installed system consists of three UTC PureComfort™ packages, each with four Capstone MicroTurbines® and a Carrier obsorption chiller. The direct exhaust-fired absorption chillers capture thermal energy from the microturbines to provide 387 tons of refrigeration for cooling both the library and the pavilion. Four stand alone Capstone 60kW units were added for a total of 960kW of generating capability.
