Assisted Living Facility Buys Tecochill for Resilient Cooling

WALTHAM, MA / ACCESSWIRE / August 18, 2021 / 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 a 200-ton Tecochill® chiller to an assisted living facility in southwestern Connecticut. The system will provide seasonal cooling to the facility with the free waste heat utilized for domestic hot water use. The system also reduces the amount of backup standby generation needed to maintain habitable conditions for residents in the event of a grid outage. Tecogen will provide maintenance services for the system from its service center in Connecticut under a maintenance agreement.

The sale joins several other recent Connecticut chiller sales facilitated by Clover Corporation, Tecogen's manufacturers' representative in Connecticut. As electric rates in Connecticut continuing to increase, cooling with the Tecochill solution is increasingly compelling for critical care facilities seeking utility cost savings and added resiliency to grid outages.

"Assisted living facilities must always balance energy savings, greenhouse gas compliance, and resiliency to grid outages in order to provide affordable and reliable care to residents" commented Benjamin Locke, Tecogen's CEO. "With electric rates continuing to climb, this facility will avoid continued rate increases from the electric utility while simultaneously reducing their greenhouse gas (GHG) footprint relative to grid power. The added resiliency of the Tecochill solution ensures the facility can continue operation in the event of a grid outage. We look forward to maintaining the system for many years to ensure cost savings, resiliency, and GHG benefits are achieved."
