Tecogen Inc. (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 that a major Massachusetts indoor growing operation has decided to purchase both Tecochill chillers and Inverde e+ cogeneration units for its high-tech greenhouse growing operation, as part of their first stage of development.
Stephen Lafaille, Tecogen’s Product Manager explained, “High-tech greenhouse operations are arguably the future of indoor growing because they will take advantage of the free sunlight provided by mother-nature but will provide a sealed and controlled environment. Tecogen’s entire product line is very well suited for indoor growing, as our chillers will provide low cost cooling and free hot water for dehumidification, needed in the summer, and our cogeneration units will provide both additional electricity for lighting and space heat required for greenhouse operations during the winter months, along with back-up power if ever needed.”
With greenhouse use on the rise for indoor growing, this is an important step for Tecogen as it expands into this market. Commenting on the sale, Tecogen’s CEO Benjamin Locke stated, “This is an important sale for the Company. Many experts feel that greenhouses are the future for indoor growing and our whole product line, both mechanical and electrical CHP systems, are perfectly suited to support the heating and cooling needs for indoor growers to be successful.”
As the customer enters additional phases of their development they have additional Tecochill chillers and Inverde e+ units in their plans. The chillers and cogeneration units for the first stage of development are expected to ship by the third quarter.
