Worth approximately half a million dollars, the sale includes the premier Ultera™ near-zero emissions control technology, various load modules, and factory engineered accessories. Thanks to the e+'s, qualification as an NFPA Type 10 Emergency Power System capable of providing backup power in case of grid failure, advanced power controls, and improved electrical efficiency, the new property will enjoy enhanced energy savings and building resilience, all while cutting its carbon footprint in half (when compared to traditional equipment solutions).

"Although the InVerde e+ has only been on the market a few weeks, this sale is a testament to the value proposition our innovative new features offer customers," said Robert Panora, Tecogen's president and chief of operations. "Through installation of our cutting edge clean technology, building managers are offered a more complete package for their site's energy needs, including emergency backup power, with a fully integrated building energy management system." 

Providing on-site power generation as well as heating and cooling capabilities, the InVerde e+ offers best-in-class electrical efficiency, patented engine control technology, integrated Microgrid hardware, and customized power electronics. Requiring just 4 inches of water column gas pressure, the e+ allows customers to avoid installation of additional pressure enhancement equipment demanded by competitive products by connecting to virtually any standard gas pipe without modification of the gas supply line.  Similarly, the e+ meets the rapid 10 second blackstart requirement for Emergency Power Supply Systems as per the National Fire Protection Association's specifications, giving customers the peace of mind they will never be left in the dark.
