AmericanDG Supplies On-Site Energy to Brooklyn-Based Nursing Home; AmericanDG Will Reduce Annual Energy Costs For Aishel Avraham Residential Health Facility.
Under the terms of the agreement, AmericanDG will provide electricity and hot water to the Aishel Avraham Residential Health Facility. Located in Brooklyn, New York, the 200-bed skilled nursing facility will receive a substantial portion of its electricity and hot water directly from a 60-kW cogeneration facility that AmericanDG will operate at the site.
"In light of cuts in medical spending, healthcare facilities such as Aishel Avraham are under tremendous pressure to keep costs down," said Barry Sanders, president of AmericanDG. "They will benefit from the energy cost- savings we deliver. And our high-quality service will also benefit the whole community, since the energy we provide is very environmentally friendly as well."
Distributed generation refers to the simultaneous production of electricity and hot water at the customer's site, rather than at a central power station. The installation for Aishel Avraham will feature clean-burning, natural gas-driven cogeneration modules from Tecogen -- modules that are known throughout the industry for their reliability and efficiency. In addition, the Tecogen modules meet the most stringent air-quality standards in the country. And Tecogen is the leading manufacturer of low-emission packaged cogeneration units in the United States, with over 30 million hours of proven field experience.
AmericanDG supplies low-cost energy to its customers through distributed power generating systems using cogeneration, which is also known as combined heat and power (CHP) technology. The company is committed to providing commercial and small industrial facilities with clean, reliable power and hot water at lower costs than local utilities can supply -- without any capital or start-up costs to the energy user. AmericanDG is headquartered in Waltham, Massachusetts.
