WALTHAM, MA / ACCESSWIRE / March 26, 2019 / Tecogen Inc. (NASDAQ: TGEN), a clean energy company providing ultra-efficient, clean, natural gas powered on-site power, heating and cooling equipment, is pleased to announce a project with an affordable housing senior living facility located in New Jersey involving four 200 ton STx Tecochill systems and one Tecopower 75 kW cogeneration unit. The equipment is expected to be installed and commissioned in time for the 2019 cooling season.
The Tecochill units will replace an existing steam absorption chiller plant that is both inefficient and expensive to operate. The Tecochill system is typically 4-5 times more efficient than typical steam fired absorption systems, and therefore operates at a fraction of the cost. The Tecopower 75 kW cogeneration unit will generate additional electric power for the building with the excess thermal energy being utilized for domestic hot water heating for the residences. The Tecochill engines will also contribute their excess thermal energy for domestic water heating.
