Rentricity is a renewable energy company that uses unique energy recovery configurations to transform the untapped energy in various man-made processes into electricity. Rentricity’s energy recovery systems – called Flow-to-Wire sm systems – convert excess pressure in water mains and other similar pipes into clean electric power. A single Flow-to-Wire sm system produces between 30 and 300 kilowatts of electricity. Since this electricity can then be sold onto the grid, Rentricity offers its generating partners an additional source of revenue and a way to offset rising electricity rates while supporting local renewable energy goals.
