Tecogen to test new propane-fueled water heater

August 7, 2013 By    

Through a partnership with the Propane Education & Research Council (PERC), Tecogen will demonstrate the Ilios, a new high-efficiency propane-fueled commercial water heating system, at four sites in the United States, the Massachusetts company announced. The project will show performance, gather operating data and provide economic payback information for the propane-fueled hot water heaters. Potential sites for these large 500,000-Btu-per-hour systems include hotels, hospitals, nursing homes, apartment buildings, athletic facilities, swimming pools as well as agriculture and aquaculture projects. The Ilios units will provide a new alternative for propane to compete more effectively in commercial and industrial water heating markets, the company says. PERC approved $157,500 for the project at its July meeting.
