WALTHAM, Mass., Oct. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Tecogen Inc. today announced new sales of its natural gas engine-driven combined heat and power (CHP) systems to schools in the north east United States and California. Tecogen cogeneration and cooling CHP products are known for helping reduce fuel consumption, operating costs and carbon footprints significantly, and maximizing overall energy efficiency.
Eight 100 kW InVerde CHP modules with available standby power and seven 75 kW induction-based CHP modules have been sold to educational facilities including high schools, middle schools and vocational schools. Ten of these units will be installed by Tecogen as turnkeys.
"It is clear that CHP is a great fit for many educational site applications," said Robert Panora, President and COO of Tecogen. "Educational facilities are often large with round-the-clock operations, steady thermal and electric requirements, and central plants, making them ideal candidates for CHP technology."
Tecogen CHP systems offer facilities energy efficiency, carbon reduction, and the ability to meet today's most stringent air quality requirements by virtually eliminating criteria pollutants (contributors to smog) using a proprietary two-stage emission system. A combination of microgrid capabilities, interconnection certification, black start and high part-load efficiencies, makes Tecogen systems a particularly attractive way to produce cleaner, more efficient energy.
Tecogen manufactures, installs and maintains high efficiency, Ultra-clean Combined Heat and Power products including natural gas engine-driven cogeneration, air conditioning systems, and high-efficiency water heaters for industrial and commercial use. Tecogen has shipped more than 2,000 units, supported by an established network of engineering, sales, and service personnel across the United States.
