WALTHAM, MA — Tecogen Inc. has announced that its 60-kW and 75-kW natural gas-powered cogeneration systems have been added to New York State's "Type Tested and Approved" list of equipment. This list includes all equipment that currently meets the state's standards governing interconnections between non-utility-owned distributed generation systems and the utility's distribution grid.

Distributed generation refers to small-scale power-generating technologies, such as Tecogen's, that are located at the end-user's site and interconnect with a utility's power distribution grid. In order for a distributed generation customer to set up their on-site system, certain interconnection and operational requirements must be satisfied before the customer is allowed to connect to the grid.
