Tecogen Sells Replacement Chiller to Connecticut School System
WALTHAM, Mass., June 28, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tecogen Inc. (NASDAQ:TGEN), a clean energy company providing ultra-efficient, clean, natural gas powered on-site power, heating and cooling equipment, has sold a new 150 ton TECOCHILL chiller system to a prominent Connecticut elementary school to replace an existing Tecogen chiller system that had reached the end of its useful life. The new TECOCHILL system will provide greater efficiency and improved environmental benefits, and will benefit from State incentives available only to engine driven chillers that can reduce peak demand on the grid.
Jeff Glick, Tecogen’s Vice President of Sales commented, “This school system has been an excellent customer for almost 20 years. The new TECOCHILL system provides important upgrades for the school system including greater capacity, improved efficiency, modern refrigerant technology, and Ultera emissions controls. The project includes a new service contract to ensure the chiller provides the expected economic benefits for the next 20 years.”
The chiller was sold by Clover Corporation, Tecogen’s manufacturer’s representative in Connecticut. Clover sold the original chiller system to the school system, which relies solely on TECOCHILL systems for all of its cooling needs, including for the high school in the same school district. Brian Cullinane, President of Clover Corporation noted, “This school system recognizes the savings of natural gas engine cooling and its decision to replace the existing unit with a new TECOCHILL system is testimony to its satisfaction with the TECOCHILL system and the economic and environmental benefits it provides.”
Benjamin Locke, Tecogen’s CEO added, “Our TECOCHILL product is the only natural gas engine-driven chiller system available for cooling large facilities like this school. The cost savings and environmental benefits of the Tecogen technology made it a simple decision for the school system to update its chiller system with Tecogen’s updated and enhanced chiller technology.”
