Tecogen to Focus on Turnkey CHP Implementations

WALTHAM, Mass., Sept. 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Tecogen today announced the successful implementation of a 60 kW Combined Heat and Power (CHP) turnkey system at the Airport Health Club in Santa Rosa, California. The system was commissioned in early July and is providing clean, efficient thermal and electric power to this state-of-the-art fitness facility.

As more facilities are looking at the benefits of implementing CHP -- such as greater reliability, accountability and value, Tecogen has been inspired to focus once again on turnkey and installation partnerships with clients, and -- with its partner American DG Energy -- serve the "On-Site Utility" energy market.

For many progressive-thinking organizations, like the Airport Health Club, the idea of adding CHP to their facilities makes sense because the technology is more efficient than conventional systems, saving money and benefitting the environment.

According to Airport Health Club Manager Vickie Morse, "Right from the start, we were impressed with the genuine care that Tecogen showed in helping us assess our needs and come up with the best plan to suit our facility. The longevity of Tecogen was also a determining factor in our decision.  The customer service we have experienced every step of the way has been stellar.   I would recommend Tecogen to any facility looking to add cogeneration to their facility."

For facilities to make a smooth transition to CHP, tasks such as engineering, permitting, utility interfacing, and maintenance of the system need expert handling. Without proper coordination, facilities can be left wanting. One key to successful CHP use is having a clear and accountable party.

"Tecogen is committed to ensuring that customers glean the full benefits from their decision to add CHP to their facilities," said Robert Panora, President and COO of Tecogen. "We have found that for many, a common concern with moving to CHP technology was their perceived lack of a central managing and accountable party. From designing and building the units to changing the oil years down the road, Tecogen can single-handedly ensure the utmost quality of care and exceptional function of our CHP units."
