Company Summary

BRASH Engines is an early stage startup. Our patented BRASH CHP (combined heat and power) can produce reliable electrical power on demand, cut the homeowner’s monthly energy cost in half and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 80% over the status quo. The BRASH design fits in the space of a home furnace, costs about the same, and works well with other clean generating systems, like Solar PV.
