Tecogen Selected for 12 Unit Microgrid Order

WALTHAM, Mass., Dec. 11, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tecogen Inc. (NASDAQ: TGEN), a clean energy company providing ultra-efficient, clean, natural gas powered on-site power, heating and cooling equipment, is pleased to announce that it has secured an order for 12 InVerde e+ units that will be installed in 6 buildings that are part of a large low income housing complex in Manhattan.  The microgrid will have 2 InVerde e+ cogeneration modules installed to provide electricity and hot water to each building. In the case of grid outages, the Tecogen system will provide backup power to maintain common area lighting, elevators, water pumps, and other backup circuits.  Tecogen was specified by a prominent engineer over alternative cogeneration options due to the technical superiority of the InVerde e+ system, which provides the best savings and cost benefit to the complex. 

“We have been working on this project for some time to develop a solution that maximizes savings to the customer and reaches an acceptable payback for their investment,” stated Benjamin Locke, Tecogen’s CEO.  “This is our fifth large microgrid system installed in large low-income housing complexes in New York City, and adds to our existing fleet of over 250 microgrid enabled CHP systems operating in the US.”  

The order qualifies for incentives from the NYSERDA program, and includes a 5 year factory maintenance agreement.  Tecogen’s large factory service presence with 25 factory trained technicians in three service centers in the New York City area was a key factor in selecting Tecogen for the project.
