New joint venture TTcogen has sold its first unit just months after launching the TEDOM product portfolio into the US market.

The sale is for a TEDOM Micro 35 kW combined heat and power unit, slated to be installed in a 138 unit multi-family residential building in Brooklyn, NY.

“This rapid first sale proves the demand and customer need for the compact Micro CHP unit is real. With a less than 3 year payback period after incentive rebates and annual savings estimated to be in excess of $60,000, the Micro 35 kW unit is a natural fit for this building,” said Benjamin Locke, co-Chief Executive Officer of Tecogen.

He added, “This is an excellent example of the Tecogen sales team turning what would have been a lost customer, with a building that is too small to take advantage of our other CHP offerings, into a customer now being served by a product from the TTcogen portfolio – producing the exact synergies that were contemplated when management formed this joint venture.” 

The compact natural gas powered unit is sized to serve nearly the entirety of the building’s domestic hot water load while also producing electricity for the property. In addition, the synchronous unit’s blackstart capability allows the Micro 35 to provide power in a blackout, improving building resiliency and offering residents peace of mind they will never be left in the dark.

The sale includes full turnkey installation service from Tecogen’s expert service team. Because of the compact size of the Micro 35, the unit is easy to retrofit to existing buildings. The simpler installation reduces the time required for installation construction, moderating disruption for residents. Mr. Locke noted, “Given the streamlined installation schedule, we expect building residents to begin reaping the benefits of their new Micro CHP unit before year end.”

A joint venture affiliate company of CHP experts Tecogen and TEDOM, TTcogen utilizes Tecogen’s sales and service network to deliver TEDOM’s line of packaged combined heat and power (CHP) units to United States customers.
