Clean energy products group Tecogen Inc. (NASDAQ: TGEN) today unveiled a collaboration with the Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance (NEAA) to install the first Ilios high efficiency water heater in the Pacific Northwest.
NEEA, an alliance of more than 140 Northwest utilities and energy efficiency organizations, will install an Ilios Air-Source unit in a retirement community in Salem, Oregon, served by natural gas from regional utility, NW Natural (NYSE: NWN).
Benjamin Locke , Tecogen’s Co-CEO said: “We are optimistic that the capabilities and value proposition our energy-saving heating solution provides will be apparent in this collaboration project, leading to a new market and potential project partners in the Northwest.”
The Ilios heat pump project will examine how much energy can be saved as well as other key considerations for installation and use that may be barriers to customer adaption in the region.
The project will run through the heating season of February to late winter 2017, however, the project partners expect to publish initial results in mid-2017.
