The Waste Heat and Carbon Emissions Reduction Act finds and declares, among other things, that combined heat and power systems produce both electricity and thermal energy from a single fuel input, thus achieving much greater efficiency than the usual separate systems for producing these forms of energy and reducing the consumption of fuel.end delete

The Legislature finds and declares all of the following:
21(a) Combined heat and power systems produce both electricity
22and thermal energy from a single fuel input, thus achieving much
23greater efficiency than the usual separate systems for producing
24these forms of energy and reducing the consumption of fuel.
25(b) Combined heat and power systems recover heat that would
26otherwise be wasted in separate energy applications and use this
27heat to avoid consumption of fuel that would otherwise be required
28to produce heat.
29(c) Gigawatthours of potential useful electricity and millions of
30British thermal units of thermal energy could be derived from
31unused waste heat that is currently being vented into the
