Tecogen Receives Multiple Chiller Order for Cannabis Cultivation Facility

Waltham, MA - (NewMediaWire) - July 13, 2021 - Tecogen Inc. (OTCQX: TGEN), a clean energy company providing ultra-efficient and clean on-site power, heating, and cooling equipment, is pleased to announce an order for two 300-ton Tecochill® chillers for an indoor cannabis cultivation facility in Massachusetts.  This order brings the total installed capacity of Tecochill chillers sold to cannabis cultivation facilities to 10,850 tons.  The chillers are expected to be serviced out of Tecogen’s Waltham service headquarters. 

“We are excited to work with this customer and their design team,” noted Stephen Lafaille, Vice President of Business Development.  “The reliability and dependability of the Tecochill solution are particularly important for cultivation facilities that require critical process cooling 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to attain the expected operational cost savings and crop yields. The cost savings are often the driver for initial consideration, but it is our track record of operational performance in other cultivation facilities that secures the order once clients complete their due diligence.”

Indoor cultivation facilities require constant temperature and humidity control for optimal plant growth.  Maintaining consistent environmental conditions every day of the year is paramount, making reliability and dependability important factors when selecting equipment.

“The Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) space continues to be a strong market for our chillers,” noted Benjamin Locke, Tecogen’s CEO.  “These units are expected to achieve over 99% uptime, which maximizes the savings for our customer as well as our service revenues which are tied to equipment utilization. We are optimistic that the Tecochill solution will also be included in the next phase of this customer’s expansion.”
