Tecogen Sells 200 Ton Tecochill to Connecticut University
WALTHAM, MA / ACCESSWIRE / September 24, 2019 / Tecogen Inc. (NASDAQ:TGEN), a clean energy company providing ultra-efficient, clean, natural gas-driven on-site power, heating, and cooling equipment, is pleased to announce the sale of a 200 ton Tecochill unit to Central Connecticut State University (CCSU). The system replaces a Tecochill unit that had been running at the University for over 23 years and includes a renewed maintenance contract that will be serviced out of Tecogen's Connecticut service center. The chiller will provide comfort cooling to a large centrally located dormitory on campus.
"CCSU has been an excellent customer for our Tecochill system for over two decades," noted Jeff Glick, Vice President of Northeast Sales at Tecogen. "The savings of gas cooling over electric chillers over that timespan was substantial, so when it came time to replace the systems, it was a clear choice to continue with the Tecochill solution. We look forward to the next 20 plus years providing savings to the University".
Universities are an excellent fit for gas cooling in areas with high electric rates. Even though operation is typically only during the cooling season, the Tecochill system offsets a significant amount of electrical demand for the campus during peak summer months, resulting in savings on utility costs and an overall reduction in the campus's greenhouse gas (GHG) footprint.
"Longstanding customers of Tecogen understand the tremendous energy savings of our Tecochill products," stated Benjamin Locke, Tecogen CEO. "This project also received support from the state, which provides incentives specifically for natural gas engine driven cooling due to its superb efficiency. Our factory service program is critical in helping customers get the most useful life out of their equipment and plays a big role in securing a repeat sale, as the customer is looking to continue that positive experience associated with our all-inclusive maintenance program."
Tecogen Inc. designs, manufactures, sells, installs, and maintains high efficiency, ultra-clean, cogeneration products including natural gas engine-driven combined heat and power, air conditioning systems, and high-efficiency water heaters for residential, commercial, recreational and industrial use. The company provides cost efficient, environmentally friendly and reliable products for energy production that, through patented technology, nearly eliminate criteria pollutants and significantly reduce a customer's carbon footprint.
