Tecogen Announces TTcogen Breaks into New Jersey Market

TEDOM Micro T55 kW synchronous CHP unit to power elementary school

WALTHAM, Mass., Aug. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Tecogen® Inc. (NASDAQ: TGEN), a leading provider of clean energy products which, through patented technology, nearly eliminate criteria pollutants and significantly reduce a customer's carbon footprint, today announced joint venture affiliate TTcogen LLC sold its first unit in New Jersey. The compact synchronous 55kW combined heat and power (CHP) unit will be fitted with Tecogen's custom manufactured load modules and power an elementary school.

Speaking about the project, Benjamin Locke, Tecogen Co-CEO and Managing Director of TTcogen commented, "This sale is notable for a number of reasons, a few of which are worth mentioning. First, the project engineer specifically requested a 50-60 kW synchronous generator CHP unit for the project. In the past this would have eliminated Tecogen from consideration as our smaller CHP units use induction generators.  In this scenario, now TTcogen can step in and compete for projects like this with the TEDOM synchronous generator portfolio. More importantly, our engineering expertise and strong collaborative relationship with the installation contractor allowed the customer to save nearly $100,000 on this installation – a real win when considering the budget constraints of most schools."

The TEDOM Micro T55 natural gas powered CHP unit will serve the school's electrical and heating demand. With super silent operation, a compact equipment footprint, and long service life, the T55 is an excellent choice for educational facilities with smaller energy requirements.  Widely installed throughout Europe, the T55 installed fleet has been reliably powering facilities for tens of thousands of hours.
