The freewatt® plus, an alternative energy system that produces heat and provides backup power, is available. It is the second-generation micro-combined heat and power (microCHP) system that produces heat and electricity for a home, and provides back-up power in the event a home loses power. Additionally, the integrated freewatt transfer switch ensures a smooth transition from grid-connected to back-up power during a power failure. A load manager also maximizes the system’s backup power generation, enabling it to power six loads, like heating and security systems, refrigerator/freezer, and sump pump, with power left over for a convenience outlet, states the company. The system uses a Honda engine/generator to generate heat, producing electric power as a byproduct. The electricity produced can be used to power the home or can be sold back to participating utilities, significantly cutting homeowners’ electric bills during the winter, the manufacturer says.

ECR International, 2201 Dwyer Ave., Utica, NY 13501; 315-797-1310; 315-797-3762 (fax); www.ecrinternational.com
