Multiple combined heat and power (CHP) systems are likely destined for a school district in Long Island, New York in the US.
Planned to consist of a total of 14 Tecogen CHP modules across six schools - two high schools and four middle schools - the CHP systems will be sized for the energy requirements of each individual school. The two smallest systems are using a single CHP unit and the largest is using five units.
Comprised of a mix of two Tecogen CHP models - the CM-75 (75 kW) (pictured) and the InVerde INV-100 (100 kW) - an engineering design study contract was awarded by a construction firm under subcontract to an energy services company (ESCO).
‘We are optimistic that this project will proceed to construction,’ said Robert Panora, President and COO of Tecogen.
