WALTHAM, Mass., July 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Tecogen® Inc. (NASDAQ: TGEN), a leading provider of cost efficient, clean and reliable products for power production, heating and cooling which, through patented technology, nearly eliminate criteria pollutants and significantly reduce a customer's carbon footprint, today announced additional project wins from National Mechanical Services. The two new projects bring total relationship value with the expert contractor to in excess of $1.5 million.
For over 40 years National Mechanical Services, now part of The Metro Group, has been an industry-leading mechanical contractor that specializes in heating and cooling equipment replacement, 24/7 service, and heating system redesign for customers in the New York tristate area. The new projects include two reliable CM-75 kW units for a 454-unit multi-family residential building in Yonkers, NY and a state-of-the-art InVerde e+ 100 kW unit for a 14-story student housing building near Central Park in New York City, NY. Both projects include Tecogen's factory engineered load modules as well as various engineered accessories, customized to meet the contractor's exact specifications and speed installation.
"National Mechanical has been a solid partner for Tecogen. Their experienced project managers understand heating and cooling systems and the benefit that combined heat and power can bring to a building; both in terms of savings for the customer as well as additional services like electricity and emergency backup power not provided by a traditional boiler solution. We look forward to building on our strong working relationship now that National Mechanical is part of The Metro Group," said Benjamin Locke, Tecogen's Co-Chief Executive Officer.
Tecogen's efficient combined heat and power ("CHP" or "cogeneration") units run on affordable and reliable natural gas. The equipment generates electricity from the gas-fueled engine and then recycles the free waste heat for use by the building's heating and cooling systems. Because waste heat is recovered from the electric power production process, the systems can achieve fuel energy utilization upwards of 90% with minimal losses – a level of efficiency that directly translates into savings for the customer.
In this way, buildings fitted with Tecogen's cutting-edge clean energy products not only enjoy significant and ongoing reductions in their utility bills, but also cut their building's carbon footprint in half.
