WALTHAM, MA / ACCESSWIRE / October 10, 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 400 ton Tecochill natural gas-fired chiller to a large residential building located in New York City. The unit will provide air conditioning for the building during the cooling months, and the waste heat will be recovered and used to generate domestic hot water for use throughout the building. The Tecochill system replaces an inefficient absorption chiller that required replacement.
"Many large residential buildings in New York that heat with steam during the winter months use steam-based absorption chillers for cooling in the summer months," noted Jeff Glick, Vice President of East Coast Sales at Tecogen. "The Tecochill system uses less than one-third (33%) of the energy used by typical steam-based absorption systems. Using steam power to drive the absorption process is cost prohibitive compared to the Tecochill natural gas-fired compressor chiller system because of the energy inefficiency of the steam driven process and absorption chilling."
The energy efficiency of the Tecochill system, including the savings resulting from the production of domestic hot water from heat energy recovered by the Tecochill system, provides compelling economic savings for the building. The high efficiency of the Tecochill system significantly reduces greenhouse gas emissions relative to conventional air conditioning systems.
"Steam-based absorbers are quite common in New York City due to the ConEdison district steam network," noted Benjamin Locke, Tecogen CEO. "However, elevated utility prices for steam and electricity, as well as the potential penalties under local laws related to excessive greenhouse gas emissions, mean that many NYC buildings with absorption chillers are prime candidates for retrofit with a clean and energy efficient Tecochill system to take advantage of both significant operational savings and greenhouse gas reductions."
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.
