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
