WALTHAM, MA / ACCESSWIRE /February 19, 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 three (3) 400-ton Tecochill® chillers to a Veterans Administration (VA) hospital in the mid-Atlantic United States. The Tecochill selection was part of several energy efficiency measures provided to the hospital by a large Energy Services Company (ESCO) and will significantly reduce both the cost of energy as well as the carbon footprint of the hospital. The units will include Tecogen's proprietary Ultera emissions system, which significantly reduces criteria pollutants such as CO and NOx. The system is expected to be installed and operational in late 2020.
"Hospitals continue to be an excellent application for our Tecochill system," said Stephen Lafaille, Director of Business Development at Tecogen. "Hospitals typically have a simultaneous need for heating and cooling in order to maintain proper climate control. The Tecochill is a perfect solution because the cost of operation is significantly less than electric chillers and the utilization of waste heat reduces the operation of the existing heating system, resulting in further savings for the hospital."
The order will add to a growing fleet of Tecogen equipment in the mid-Atlantic region, which is currently served out of Tecogen's New Jersey service center.
"I am encouraged to see more sales activity in the mid-Atlantic region," stated Benjamin Locke, Tecogen Chief Executive Officer. "In addition to cost savings using affordable natural gas to cool the facility, the overall greenhouse gas savings of Tecochill are substantial given the fuel mix of the electric grid in the region."
Tecogen Inc. designs, manufactures, sells, installs and maintains high efficiency, ultra-clean, cogeneration products including natural gas engine-driven combined heat and power, air conditioning systems and high-efficiency water heaters for residential, commercial, recreational and industrial use. The company is known for cost efficient, environmentally friendly and reliable products for energy production that, through patented technology, nearly eliminate criteria pollutants and significantly reduce a customer's carbon footprint.
