Tecogen Announces Sale of InVerde e+ to Mixed Use Building in Ontario

WALTHAM, MA, Sept. 15, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- Tecogen Inc. (OTCQX: TGEN), a clean energy company providing ultra-efficient and clean on-site power, heating and cooling equipment, is pleased to announce the sale of an InVerde e+ cogeneration system to a residential and commercial building located in Sarnia, Ontario.  The 125 kW system will reduce the building’s energy costs while providing black-start backup power during grid outages.  Once installation is completed in 2021, the system will be serviced from Tecogen’s service center in Toronto, Canada. 

“Tecogen’s InVerde e+ system provides reliable backup power while maximizing energy savings for large mixed-use facilities,” stated Jeff Glick, Vice President of East Coast Sales at Tecogen.  “In addition to significant cost savings, residents and businesses in the facility can have peace of mind knowing the building can continue to operate during grid outages.”

The InVerde e+ cogeneration system can provide backup power within ten seconds of a grid outage and will continue to provide power and heat throughout grid outages using pipeline gas.  Tecogen also incorporates a proprietary microgrid controller which can provide seamless transition to and from the grid during outages. 

“I am glad to see our InVerde fleet grow in Ontario,” noted Benjamin Locke, Tecogen’s CEO. “With proper factory service, our systems can run for decades while maintaining performance and savings for customers.  Our goal when we opened our Toronto service center in May was to create customer confidence in maintaining their investment for many years to come, and with the additional resources of Ainsworth, our teaming partner in Ontario, we expect to increase installations of new cogeneration and chiller systems in Ontario that will be serviced from our Toronto service center.”
