WALTHAM, MA / ACCESSWIRE / April 30, 2020 / Tecogen Inc. (NASDAQ:TGEN), a clean energy company providing ultra-efficient on-site power, heating and cooling equipment, is pleased to announce orders for multiple InVerde microgrid enabled cogeneration systems from two separate multi-unit residential buildings in New York City. One of the buildings is installing two InVerde units to replace a competitor’s cogeneration system that was no longer in operation.
“We continue to see strong demand for InVerde systems in New York City as buildings invest in efficiency measures to meet New York City’s carbon reduction laws,” commented Jeff Glick, Vice President of East Coast Sales at Tecogen. “The InVerde cogeneration system is one of the most cost-effective ways that buildings can substantially reduce their greenhouse gas (GHG) footprint to avoid penalties under New York local law 97. The InVerde’s high efficiency is expected to reduce the GHG footprint of these buildings by more than 37% and improve their economic return on building operations.”
New York City’s local law 97 requires GHG reductions of 25% by 2024 and 40% by 2030. The InVerde system produces electricity and hot water far more efficiently than the electric grid and conventional hot water boilers, and typically reduces the GHG footprint of a large residential building by as much as 250 metric tons/year.
“Our InVerde cogeneration systems are one of the most cost-effective ways for buildings to reach their carbon reduction targets” stated Benjamin Locke, Tecogen’s CEO. “Both of these buildings are expected to reduce their energy costs significantly year over year while benefitting from resiliency to grid interruptions. More importantly, the InVerde system provides significant GHG reductions to permit buildings to avoid costly penalties for failing to reach prescribed GHG reduction goals.”
Both projects are expected to be operational in late 2020 and include five-year maintenance agreements.
Tecogen Inc. designs, manufactures, sells, installs and maintains high efficiency, ultra-clean, cogeneration products including 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.
