Summit Energy Systems

Summit Energy Systems is the exclusive distributor for Capstone Turbine products and services in Utah and Idaho. In partnership with Capstone Turbine, Summit Energy Systems are technology leaders and innovators in onsite power and distributed energy.

Our mission is to help clients lower their energy costs and reduce their dependence on centralized power plants by producing clean, efficient energy onsite using Capstone's cutting edge technology.


Capstone Turbine Corporation® is the world’s leading producer of low-emission MicroTurbine systems, and was the first to market with commercially viable MicroTurbine energy products.  With thousands of MicroTurbine systems shipped to customers worldwide, and millions of operating hours, Capstone continues to successfully provide solutions to customer’s energy needs.
Capstone MicroTurbine solutions help you improve your operation by putting you in control of your energy costs. Advanced engineering and more than 100 patents put the Capstone MicroTurbines in a class of their own. By integrating an aero-based turbine engine, a magnetic generator, advanced power electronics, and air bearings technology, Capstone MicroTurbines are an ideal solution to today’s distributed generation needs.


By developing your own power generation solutions, with a diverse portfolio of resources, you can mitigate risk, and isolate your operations from fluctuations in the public grid and reduce peak demand charges.

Oil, Gas & Natural Resources

Capstone microturbines align perfectly with the needs of the oil and gas industry and are currently used in all phases of oil production including upstream, midstream, and downstream operations in both onshore and offshore applications. Capstone microturbines provide the low operational cost, high availability, and high reliability oil producers need.

Critical Power Supply

Traditional backup generation sets are often considered only as idle assets and can be unreliable when you need them the most. Mission critical facilities require a power generation solution that is more reliable and efficient than what a typical utility can provide. Capstone’s critical power supply portfolio features the world’s only microturbine-powered Uninterruptible Power Source (UPS) solution that delivers the reliability and performance critical facilities require. When operating in “Dual Mode”, Capstone microturbines can easily transition from continuous power mode to standby power mode.

Renewable Energy

With the use of an anaerobic digester, Capstone microturbines are able to cleanly and effectively run on methane gas from landfills, wastewater treatment facilities and food processing facilities, as well as agriculture waste, which is often referred to as “green waste.” Rather than simply venting or flaring the methane gas, Capstone microturbines can convert this free fuel to clean and reliable electricity for use at the site or surrounding areas. Capstone offers its "CR" (Capstone Renewable) line of microturbines specifically designed to operate on waste gas fuels.

Energy Efficiency

Energy efficiency refers to the proper utilization of both electrical energy and thermal energy in the power production process. Capstone microturbines can be easily integrated to capture thermal energy produced from the exhaust to provide a significant economic advantage to end users. Capstone microturbines can achieve overall efficiency levels of up to 80 percent in combined heat and power (CHP) applications and up to 90 percent in combined cooling, heat and power (CCHP) applications.
