The Tolko Kelowna Powerhouse Co-Generation plant is currently in operation. The plant normally produces about 4.2 MW and sometimes up to 7.2 MW of electrical power output, and approximately 20 MW of thermal capacity. A steam turbine connected to a generator produces the electricity. The steam turbine inlet conditions have the steam at about 400 psi and 580°F, with a steam flow of about 80,000 to 100,000 lbm/hr.
