Tecogen has sold an InVerde cogeneration system to Coney Island Development in Brooklyn, N.Y.
The company said that three 100kW will be used in a multifamily residential building. The sale, worthy more than $500,000 will be outfitted with the company’s Ultera emission technology and microgrid control software. The systems are designed to work load balance and disconnect from the grid in case of a blackout.
The company said that the Inverde line of cogeneration systems was introduced in 2008 and has run for more than 2 million hours. The combined heat and power units have been upgraded for improved electrical efficiency, DC input integration with battery or renewable power systems and other features.
New York City is adopting cogeneration rapidly. Projects include the Cipriani Club Residences in Manhattan and a New York City Housing Authority project in Red Hook, Brooklyn.
