Ilios Increases Presence in Hawaii with Sale of Two Ilios Water Heaters to a Major Hotel on Waikiki Beach

WALTHAM, Mass., June 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Ilios Dynamics Inc., a subsidiary of Tecogen® Inc. (NASDAQ: TGEN) today announced the sale of (2) Ilios HEWH-500-AS natural gas engine driven, air-source heat pump water heaters.

The units are being purchased and installed by American DG Energy and are to be installed in a large hotel on Oahu's Waikiki Beach. By using a combination of clean burning natural gas and renewable energy found in the surrounding air, the Ilios unit will offset fuel use in the existing boiler plant by producing domestic hot water at a much higher efficiency; thereby saving energy, reducing operating costs, and lowering greenhouse gas emissions for the property.

"We are excited to increase our footprint in Hawaii as it is a superb market for our products, especially in the hospitality space," said Stephen Lafaille, Ilios Product Manager. "We are contributing to a new trend where hotels are opting to first spend money in the back of the house on energy efficiency, which in turn frees up money that can then be spent in the front of the house. That wasn't always the approach which is why we run into a lot of existing systems that are inefficient. It offers an immense opportunity to help these properties save energy and decrease their carbon footprint, something that today's guests are putting a lot of value in."

The sale is accompanied by a fully inclusive, long-term maintenance contract.
