Tecogen Inc. (Waltham, MA) announced that its 60kW and 75kW natural-gas-powered cogeneration systems have been added to New York State's type-tested and approved list of equipment, which includes all equipment that currently meets the state's standards governing interconnections between non-utility-owned distributed generation (DG) and the utility's distribution grid.

"We're very pleased that Tecogen's cogeneration units have been added to the PSC's listing of approved equipment," commented Bob Panora, president and COO of Tecogen. "The 'Type-Tested' status will significantly cut down our review time, so this should help us - and our customers - move through the permitting process much more quickly."
