Tecogen Receives Order for Three Tecopower Systems for City Housing Authority

WALTHAM, MA, Oct. 15, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NewMediaWire -- Tecogen Inc. (OTCQX: TGEN), a clean energy company providing ultra-efficient and clean on-site power, heating, and cooling equipment, is pleased to announce the sale of three 75 kW Tecopower systems to an Energy Services Company (ESCO). The units will be installed on behalf of a Housing Authority in Massachusetts.  The system replaces a competitor’s existing cogeneration system that was retired early. 

“Our track record of service longevity and expertise was an important consideration for this ESCO,” noted Stephen Lafaille, Director of Business Development at Tecogen.  “Long term energy savings contracts need assurance that their energy saving measures will remain viable for the duration of the contracts, some of which are upwards of 20 years.  Tecogen’s track record of maintaining system uptime and peak operational performance over decades speaks for itself.”  

The Tecopower system was introduced by Tecogen in the mid-1980s as the first modular cogeneration system.  Since then, Tecogen has delivered thousands of systems in the United States and maintains the largest fleet of modular cogeneration systems in the country.  Many of Tecogen’s Tecopower units are operating at housing authority buildings across the country, as many have come to value the energy savings and rely upon the operational cost savings to balance their budgets.

“I am very proud of the role our service fleet plays in creating customer confidence,” stated Benjamin Locke, Tecogen’s CEO.  “We establish reliability goals for each of our 11 service centers that ensure our fleet operates at peak efficiency.  The more our systems operate, the more savings customers will generate from our systems.  We look forward to working with this ESCO on this project and future opportunities.”
