At least, that's what the hope is. This article from The Christian Science Monitor is rasing awareness of new micro-combined heat-and-power untis, or micro-CHP, that have recently entered the market in the New England area. These little babies supposedly generate heat and electricity as a by-product, helping reduce your electric bills while still heating your home. If anything, it is important for technologies like this to be exposed to a wide audience to let people know there are alternatives to relying on the utility companies for all your heating and power needs. Let's hope something big comes of this!
