Tecogen Rolls Out New Tecopower CHP Product

Tecopower is the latest upgrade to the longstanding CM series

WALTHAM, Mass., June 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tecogen Inc. (NASDAQ:TGEN), a leading manufacturer of clean energy cogeneration products that, through patented technology, nearly eliminate criteria pollutants and significantly reduce a customer's carbon footprint, is pleased to announce the official roll-out of the Tecopower™ line of cogeneration products. Tecopower is the latest upgrade of the company’s long-standing CM-series and is similarly available in both 60 kW and 75 kW sizes. The most significant improvement is a 5% increase in electrical efficiency which results in significant additional savings for customers. A newly designed enclosure lowers the noise level by 5 dBa to 65 dBa at twenty feet. Notably, Tecopower is able to now operate at a gas pressure as low as four inches water-column, virtually eliminating the need to boost gas pressure.

Stephen Lafaille, Tecogen’s Product Manager stated, “What started out as a rebranding effort quickly morphed into a number of product improvements that have now really set us apart in the market. In Tecopower we have developed a CHP solution that is more efficient, quieter, and simpler to install. We shipped transition models last year, which received a warm welcome from the market, and shipments of the fully framed Tecopower will begin this quarter. As with all our products, Tecopower comes equipped with our patented Ultera® emission control system, enabling it to achieve emissions levels on par with a fuel cell at a fraction of the cost. In all, these changes add up to a powerful competitive advantage.”

Tecogen’s CEO Benjamin Locke added, “Back in the early eighties, Tecogen pioneered the modular, packaged, and standardized CHP system that is now Tecopower. This product has been a cost-effective workhorse for over 30 years. A fleet of over 1,200 units across the US has logged millions of hours of operation and saved customers millions of dollars on their energy bills. Our leadership position as innovators in the industry is key to our competitive advantage and long-term success. Tecopower is simply another step forward in our continuing effort to sustain that leadership.”

The first Tecopower systems are expected to ship by the end of this quarter.
