Tecogen Announces Six Chillers Sold for Indoor Growing

WALTHAM, Mass., Dec. 13, 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 three separate Tecochill orders into the burgeoning indoor cultivation industry.  The three projects, located in Florida and Massachusetts, collectively consist of four 150/200 ton STx Tecochill systems and two 400 ton DTx Tecochill systems.  All six units are expected to be delivered and operational in the first half of 2019. 

“The indoor cultivation industry as a whole has tremendous energy needs to produce many high value crops reliably and consistently as possible” noted Stephen Lafaille, Director of Business Development at Tecogen. “The Tecochill product delivers reliable, cost-effective energy savings that is becoming standard practice for the production of these high value crops.” 

A 400-ton Tecochill DTx system typically eliminates approximately 250 kW of installed electric capacity.  For growing facilities located in areas with limited electrical capacity, the Tecochill solution significantly reduces the power required from local utilities while providing substantial cost saving. 

“Installing our Tecochill systems instead of traditional electric chillers allows site operators more flexibility with the power still used from the local utility” stated Benjamin Locke, Tecogen’s CEO. “In combination with our modular CHP systems, the Tecogen solution is the most cost-effective way to reduce energy costs for indoor cultivation.” 

The projects include full maintenance contracts to be serviced out of the Massachusetts factory service center and the new Tampa, Florida service center.
