Tecogen Sells CHP Equipment to State University

WALTHAM, Mass., May 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Tecogen® Inc. (NASDAQ: TGEN) is pleased to announce the sale of a CM-75 combined heat and power (CHP) unit to a state university in New England. The sale includes turnkey installation, factory engineered accessories and various load modules. Fitted with Tecogen's patented Ultera emissions control equipment, the cogeneration unit will meet the thermal and electrical demand of the university's athletic facility in an ultra-clean and efficient way.  

"Tecogen's efficient natural gas powered cogeneration equipment is a natural fit for a site like a university and a great example of how our clean energy products help customers save on operating expense, freeing valuable resources that may be re-directed toward the customer's core mission," said Robert Panora, Tecogen's President and Chief Operating Officer.

The contract was awarded in conjunction with a large engineering services company (ESCO) that Tecogen has worked closely with in the past. Mr. Panora added, "Delivering a project payback period of less than five years while cutting the facility's carbon footprint approximately in half, the installation makes both fiscal and environmental sense. This uncompromising benefit gives customers an environmentally friendly and economically sensible energy solution and is a major reason ESCOs select Tecogen as a repeat partner."
