Welcome to NewLoop Energy
NewLoop Energy, LLC. is the authorized distributor of Capstone Microturbines for Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Iowa. A microturbine is a clean burning reliable generator of electricity for distributed generation that runs in connection with the grid or off the grid in a stand alone function. The turbine can be coupled with an incorporated heat recovery system to capture heat exhaust allowing the turbine to also heat your building or water supply. This is called CHP or Combined Heat and Power and no one produces a more efficient reliable machine than Capstone Turbine.
With Federal and Statewide Grants lowering project costs, there has never been a better time to save money on your electricity and gas bills than now. When used in CHP applications, Capstone microturbines can reach efficiencies totaling 80-85%. Larger projects energy savings can easily reach over $300,000 a year. Future legislation for limiting CO2 emissions is expected to have many ramifications. Besides helping the environment, it is widely understood that Cap and Trade or EPA restrictions will increase electricity rates. In addition, with Capstone microturbines installed, your business may be eligible to sell your unused Carbon Credits for additional income every year.

Energy Independence & Reliability
No more power outages, no more production stoppages, no more wild swings in energy costs; that is the power of generating your own electricity. Capstone turbines use natural gas, biogas, biodiesel and more to produce electricity on-site without the fear of power loss. With 99.5% reliability and N+1 redundancy setups achieving 99.999999% availability, Capstone is a great source for secure power. With an integrated Dual Mode Controller in every microturbine, your Capstone installation will automatically switch from stand alone to grid connect power without the fear of ever losing power. Protect your business and give yourself the freedom and power to be independent from the grid.
Helping to Save the Planet
Microturbines are the number one alternative energy technology in terms of reduction of CO2 per kW installed. With increased efficiency and reduced emissions, Capstone microturbines are the only distributed generation product to achieve the strict CARB certification (California Air Resources Board). When taken into account how often a solar and wind turbine user has to use the grid for power, microturbines are even better for the environment than those renewable sources. In fact for every 1MW of power produced by a Capstone microturbine, that is the equivalent to taking 700 passenger cars off the road or adding 730 acres of fir forest. By using methane that would normally escape or worse be flared in biogas and biomass applications, the microturbine becomes a truly renewable source of power. Capstone is made in the USA and has won the US Export Achievement Award for creating clean technology jobs right here at home.
