Blue Earth Awarded Nearly $500,000 Utility Contract
HENDERSON, Nev., March 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Blue Earth, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: BBLU) is pleased to announce that its subsidiary, Castrovilla, Inc. ("CI") has implemented its contract with Roseville Electric to provide a turnkey commercial refrigeration energy efficiency program, which includes the program design, administration, marketing, installation, evaluation, measurement and verification.
The Roseville Electric contract is similar to other "KEEP YOUR COOL" implementations CI has done in the past. This particular program is targeted for Roseville Electric's $923,000 Energy Efficiency Community Block Grant (EECBG) allocation from funds allocated by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). CI will employ local technicians for this program in keeping with the ARRA emphasis on job creation.
This project allows CI to deliver its very successful KEEP YOUR COOL rebate program to Roseville Electric at around 18.2 cents per kWh (first year costs) which is cost effective to the utility and its small commercial customers. "We applaud Roseville Electric's decision to utilize the ARRA funds for this important commercial refrigeration energy efficiency program," stated John Pink, President of Castrovilla, Inc. "The leadership shown by Roseville Electric should be an example for other utilities that are looking to accomplish energy efficiency goals and create local jobs through the use of these federal stimulus funds."
CI has served over 6,000 small businesses and several utilities in Northern California. CI participates in numerous utility ratepayer-funded energy efficiency rebate programs, one of which CI successfully developed for the utilities called "KEEP YOUR COOL". For small businesses, it performs energy audits and comprehensive refrigeration efficiency upgrades in restaurants, supermarkets, refrigerated warehouses and other businesses saving its customers tens of millions in utility expenses and reducing environmental pollutants. In addition to energy efficiency retrofits, CI also has on-going contracts to provide periodic maintenance to numerous restaurants and other refrigerated facilities throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.
"CI under the experienced leadership of John Pink, has developed a business model for substantially generating and delivering kW and kWh that benefits both the utility and the end user," stated Dr. Johnny R. Thomas, CEO of Blue Earth, Inc. "We are excited about the opportunity this contract provides to expand the innovative KEEP YOUR COOL program to utilities statewide and eventually on a regional basis."
