MGM Resorts' Ortega discusses reliability, cost benefits of combined heat and power
In many cases after Superstorm Sandy, combined heat and power technology was credited with enabling critical infrastructure facilities to continue operating. How big a game changer is this technology? During today's OnPoint, Cindy Ortega, chief sustainability officer at MGM Resorts, explains how a combined heat and power system at her company's Las Vegas CityCenter facility has increased reliability and improved the bottom line. Ortega discusses the policy structure she believes is needed to reach President Obama's national goal of adding 40 gigawatts of installed combined heat and power capacity by 2020.
