District energy systems such as RDH’s are able to serve a large number of buildings and institutions from a relatively small footprint.
District energy systems offer many economic and environmental benefits:
- District energy eliminates the capital costs and space required to buy and operate individual boilers in buildings
- District energy reduces many of the operating and maintenance staff costs by eliminating the need for highly trained and licensed on-site maintenance and operating personnel, as well as annual maintenance contracts
- District energy operates 24/7/365 with reliable, stable infrastructure, and has the proven ability to withstand major events such as earthquakes and severe weather without interruption
- Buildings on district energy systems allow for variable energy use, from as little to as much as you need (within the system capacity)
