One of the most frequently asked questions we get regarding solar is: How do I determine the total utility offset cost? TitanGen General Manager Adam Teff shares with us some tips.
The biggest obstacle to successful solar project implementation occurs before any permits are pulled, before a single panel is delivered to the job site and well before the utility authorizes the system to begin producing power. TitanGen General Manager Adam Teff shows us how to really understand our solar savings.
One out of every eight people in Hartford and Tolland Counties are at risk of hunger, according to Foodshare, a Connecticut-based regional food bank. For us at Titan, which is headquartered in Rocky Hill, Conn., that translates to roughly 127,000 of our neighbors who experience food insecurity, including more than 36,000 children.
The EIA expects nearly 32 gigawatts (GW) of new electric generating capacity will come online in the United States in 2018, more than in any year over the past decade. Although renewables such as wind and solar accounted for 98% of the 2 GW added so far this year (based on data for January and February), EIA expects about 21 GW of natural gas-fired generators will come online in 2018.

With generous utility incentives and historically low installation costs, there has never been a better time to evaluate the positive impact solar technology can have on your business.
Pennsylvania’s marketed natural gas production averaged a record 15 billion cubic feet per day in 2017, 3 percent higher than the previous year. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, this is a result of shale plays in the Appalachian Basin. In 2017, Pennsylvania accounted for 19 percent of total U.S. marketed natural gas production, producing more natural gas than any other state except Texas. To read more, click here.
The stored supply of natural gas in the United States has reached its lowest levels since 2014, according to a report from the Energy Information Administration.
Overall electricity use in U.S. manufacturing has declined in recent years, according to new data released by the U.S. Census Bureau.
With an increase in technologies like co-generation, many manufacturing companies have the option to generate their own electricity in addition to pulling directly from the electric grid to run their processes. From 2006 through 2016, the manufacturing sector purchased 87% to 89% of their electricity from the grid and generated the remaining 11% to 13% onsite.

Have you ever wondered why your electricity bill is so high one month and then lowers another? Have you asked yourself how, exactly, is energy measured?
The technology behind Combined Heat and Power (CHP) is simple: instead of sourcing electricity from the local utility and creating hot water or steam with traditional boilers, a CHP system performs both functions with one machine using low cost, plentiful natural gas.
Bridget Kearney, daughter of Titan Energy’s late founder John Kearney, is running the 2018 Boston Marathon! John was an avid marathon runner before he lost his hard fought battle with Lung Cancer in October, 2012. Bridget is raising funds and running for the Mass General team in his honor. The fundraising money is directed to cancer care, research, and initiatives that enhance the quality of life for the hospital’s youngest cancer patients.

Last week, the Trump Administration announced it will impose a 30% tariff on solar panels. It's important to ask: what actually drives panel prices and which panel producers have a right to exist in a free market system? How do we separate shortsighted political decisions from the right prescription for renewable energy job growth?
2018 will be an exciting year in the energy world. President Trump’s administration has proclaimed they’re going to increase renewable energy sources in the United States. Taking inspiration from Denmark and Rhode Island, who have both successfully implemented offshore wind farms.

To all of our East Coast readers riding out the “bomb cyclone,” we hope this finds you at 11 a.m. still in your pajamas, warm cup of cocoa in your hand, hunkering down on your couch to finally catch up on Stranger Things.
If this recent cold snap isn’t enough of a clue, 2018 is already a year for the record books. According to the Energy Information Administration, the lower 48 kicked off the New Year by experiencing the coldest day of the 21st century on Jan. 1. And with those bone-chilling temps, the demand for natural gas skyrocketed, helping to set a new record for natural gas consumption.
Overall, demand reached 150.7 billion cubic feet, which passed the previous single-day record of 143.3 Bcf on Jan. 7, 2014. However, residential and commercial natural gas consumption didn’t appear to set a record that day despite much colder-than-normal temps.
New England has been at the forefront of converting its fossil fuel power plants to use cleaner burning natural gas. In fact, the region’s electricity generation is over 50% reliant on natural gas. In addition, many New Englanders have gas lines in their homes and use natural gas for heating and cooking.

Earlier this week, three companies - Cummins, McKinstry and Microsoft - unveiled a pilot project aimed at reducing energy loss through the use of natural gas-powered fuel cells.
The project, which is said to be the first of its kind, has begun taking place at the new Advanced Energy Lab in Seattle. It should improve reliability and efficiency, and reduce operating costs of a data center, according to Christian Belady, general manager of Microsoft’s Development and Acquisition team.
"By generating electricity close by — literally on top of the computing hardware — Microsoft's new design eliminates the inefficiency of producing electricity at a distant power plant and transporting it long distances to data centers. That could trim the energy footprint of the fast-growing data-center business, eliminating a portion of the carbon emissions that fuel global warming, and, in the process, save Microsoft a lot of cash."
