Chiller Sale to Repeat Customer in Boise, Idaho

WALTHAM, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/10/17 -- TecogenĀ® Inc. (NASDAQ: TGEN), a clean energy company providing ultra-efficient, clean, natural gas powered on-site power, heating and cooling equipment, is pleased to announce the sale of a150-ton Tecochill STx series chiller in Boise, ID. It will provide the cooling needs for the corporate headquarters of a regional utility company. Of note, the sale is a replacement of an existing similarly sized Tecogen chiller that had reached the end of its useful life.

"We've had a long relationship with this customer and appreciate their continued and ongoing interest in doing business with us," stated Vice President of Sales William Martini. "The existing chiller had been in place for almost 30 years. It was finally time for an upgrade to an updated and much more efficient machine, enabling the customer further operational savings beyond what the original equipment provided."

According to Tecogen Co-CEO Benjamin Locke, "Although this particular location is independently serviced, the fact that the prior unit operated successfully for nearly three decades is a testament to both the high quality of our products and the importance of proper maintenance. Our comprehensive service contracts can extend the life of our equipment almost indefinitely, which speaks volumes to both the diligence and professionalism of our service employees. They are integral to the company's success."
