Tecogen® Inc. designs, manufactures, markets, and maintains high efficiency, ultra-clean cogeneration products including natural gas engine-driven combined heat and power, air conditioning systems, and water heaters for residential, commercial, recreational and industrial use. Tecogen is known for cost efficient, environmentally friendly and reliable products for distributed power generation that, through patented technology, nearly eliminate criteria pollutants and significantly reduce a customer's carbon footprint. Tecogen's natural gas powered cogeneration systems (also known as combined heat and power or "CHP") are efficient because they drive electric generators or compressors, which reduce the amount of electricity purchased from the utility while recovering the engine's waste heat for water heating, space heating, and/or air conditioning at the customer's building. Tecogen manufactures three types of CHP products: Cogeneration units that supply electricity and hot water including the InVerde® 100, InVerde e+®, CM-75 and CM-60; Chillers that provide air-conditioning and hot water marketed under the TECOCHILL® brand name; and Ilios® branded high-efficiency water heaters. Tecogen's CHP products are sold directly to customers by our in-house marketing team, and by established sales agents and representatives, including ADGE.
