Tecogen Inc. (TGEN – $3.92), a leading manufacturer of clean energy products, initiated a collaboration with the Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance (NEEA), a union of more than 140 Northwest utilities and energy efficiency organizations, to install more energy efficient natural gas equipment in the Pacific Northwest of the United States.
As an initial test project, an Ilios air-source unit will soon be installed in a retirement community in Salem, Oregon. The NEEA chose this location as it felt that it successfully met key parameters like appropriate size, load demand and usage and that it could become a good demonstration project.
The alliance’s goal is to make the Northwest states increasingly energy efficient by accelerating new technologies, products and best practices and promoting the adoption of existing energy-efficient technologies. In addition, it aims to promote the use of natural gas, which is abundantly available in the region.
