Tecogen Obtains 250 kW Microgrid Order for New York Office Building

WALTHAM, MA / ACCESSWIRE / April 9, 2020 / 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 an order for a 250 kW trigeneration system, consisting of two (2) microgrid-enabled InVerde e+ units and 200 tons of absorption cooling. The Tecogen CHP units will supply energy to the facility throughout the year at a much higher efficiency than the utility while also reducing the building’s carbon footprint. In the event of a power outage, the InVerde units will continue to provide power to the building through Tecogen’s proprietary microgrid controls.

“We are very excited to receive an order from this building owner, a large real estate asset management company,” commented Abinand Rangesh, Director of Strategy at Tecogen. “We have been working with this ownership group to identify buildings in their portfolio that can benefit from our clean energy systems. This building was an excellent fit for a trigeneration system, which allows our InVerde units to run year-round with the hot water used for heating the facility in the winter and cooling the facility with the absorption chillers in the summer. We anticipate the development of similar projects with this owner in the future.”

Trigeneration, or combined cooling, heat and power (CCHP), is a process which uses the heat produced by a cogeneration plant to generate chilled water via the absorption process for air conditioning or refrigeration. A single InVerde cogeneration unit provides sufficient hot water to drive a 50-ton absorption chiller. With natural gas rates at an all-time low, trigeneration systems are a cost-effective alternative to traditional means of heating and cooling buildings.

“Our natural gas engine-driven products help large real estate companies meet their Environment, Social, and Governance (ESG) goals while simultaneously reducing operational expenses,” stated Benjamin Locke, Tecogen CEO. “This particular owner took the time to tour our factory and understand the economic and environmental benefits of our InVerde cogeneration system. Our track record for providing quality systems and services is an important criterion for this customer. We look forward to identifying additional buildings in their portfolio that can benefit from Tecogen’s clean energy systems.”

The project installation is expected in late 2020 and will include a five-year maintenance agreement.
