ECR Receives DOE Grant

UTICA, N.Y. - U.S. Rep. Sherwood Boehlert, R-N.Y., announced that a $500,000 Department of Energy grant has been awarded to ECR International to spur the development of new energy-saving technology. The grant will allow ECR International to develop and commercialize a device that will enable gas-fired home heating appliances to generate electricity and heat simultaneously. According to the company, successful development of this new technology, called micro-cogeneration, will ultimately cut consumer utility bills and provide backup power.

Tom Reed, chairman of the board of ECR International said: "On behalf of the 500-plus employees of ECR International, we want to thank the Department of Energy for this award, and we particularly want to thank Congressman Boehlert for his support of our request and his faith in the ability of ECR International to bring the development of our micro-cogeneration products to fruition."
