Tecogen's InVerde Fleet Logs Over 2 Million Run Hours
WALTHAM, Mass., April 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Tecogen® Inc. (NASDAQ: TGEN) is pleased to announce its fleet of InVerde 100 kW combined heat and power (CHP) units have now exceeded 2 million cumulative total run-time hours, a significant milestone for the ultra-efficient clean energy equipment.
"Tecogen was first to market with an inverter-based packaged cogeneration product. The several million hours of run-time now logged on the InVerde fleet represents a strong base of proven and reliable operating experience and reinforces our position as the leader in the category," said Benjamin Locke, Tecogen co-Chief Executive Officer. "With our InVerde product, customers can be assured they are getting time tested clean and efficient power generation, backed by Tecogen's expert service and experienced maintenance team."
Tecogen's latest upgrade to the InVerde line of efficient combined heat and power units was launched this spring with several new and important features unmatched by competing offerings. Among the most notable new additions, the InVerde e+ offers improved best-in-class electrical efficiency, seamless DC input integration with battery or renewable power systems, features rapid 10 second blackstart capability (qualifying the equipment as meeting the strict National Fire Protection Association Type 10 standard for Emergency and Standby Power Systems), and runs on a standard 4" gas pressure (eliminating the need for costly gas boosters or compression equipment).
Consistent with prior InVerde models, the InVerde e+ comes fitted with the Company's patented state-of-the-art Ultera emissions control technology, making the InVerde the only natural gas powered CHP product line on the market to nearly eliminate harmful criteria pollutants that contribute to smog. The e+ also features Tecogen's proprietary UL certified inverter for safe and seamless utility grid interconnection as well as our exclusively licensed CERTS Microgrid software, allowing the system to effortlessly balance power demand from the building. All of these features are bundled together and exclusively offered by Tecogen, creating a unique CHP solution for building resiliency and energy efficiency.
