Northern Middlesex County YMCA Cogeneration Installation

Controlled Air, Inc. furnished and installed a Tecogen CM-75 Cogeneration system with a hospital grade silencer and power exhaust ventilator at the Middlesex YMCA.

The projections were as follows:

  • 2.05 year Return On Investment (ROI)
  • Yearly Savings of 624,150 kWh
  • Approximate Annual Energy savings of $146,147.35
  • Cogeneration would produce 3.76 Billion BTU’s of heat, and 600,000KWH of electricity per year

The project was completed in 2012 and we have been monitoring energy usage and production. The Cogeneration system has been better then projected! The system has reduced oil consumption by 20,000 gals per year, as well as saving over $127,000 in electricity costs. On average the Cogeneration system is producing 1,800 kWh of electricity per day. This is a huge reduction in cost and energy for the YMCA.
