Commitments and Contingencies Disclosure [Abstract]  
Commitments and contingencies Commitments and Contingencies     On November 23, 2022, we were served with a suit filed against us on August 24, 2022 in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice by The Corporation of the Town of Milton, Milton Energy Generation Solutions Inc. and Milton Hydro Distribution Inc (the "Plaintiffs"), all of whom are municipal corporations incorporated in the Province of Ontario. The plaintiffs sued for damages in the amount of CDN $1,000,000, pre-judgment and post-judgment interest, legal fees, and any further relief the court may deem, alleging breach of contract, breach of warranty, negligent misrepresentations and nuisance. Plaintiffs allege that on or about July 10, 2022, a Tecogen cogenerator installed by us at the plaintiffs facility caught fire, causing damage to the cogenerator and the plaintiff's facility. We have filed a response denying liability and are being represented by Canadian counsel. For the year ended December 31, 2022, we reserved $150,000 for anticipated damages which may not be covered by our insurance.
