Desert Community Clubhouse

    WINDSOR, Colo., June 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Ice Energy(R), the premier
 provider of efficient energy storage products for shifting air conditioning
 demand, today announced that the City of Victorville, California has
 ordered ten Ice Bear(R) units to provide clean, efficient cooling for the
 new clubhouse at the city's Green Tree Golf Course. The Ice Bear units will
 provide 69 tons of cooling and slash the air conditioning peak demand by
 more than 95% at the 14,000 square foot event facility. The order is part
 of Victorville's city-wide program to install Ice Bear units at every
 public building in order to dramatically reduce peak energy consumption, an
 effort that won the city a prestigious Flex Your Power award earlier this
 year. The clubhouse is scheduled for completion in June 2008, in time for
 the high desert region's most extreme summer heat.
     "As we saw through last year's summer temperatures that soared above
 110 degrees, the Ice Bear units enable us to provide community space that
 is cool, comfortable and sustainable," said Victorville's Director of
 Community Services, Jon Gargan. "In the face of growing concerns about the
 environment and the reliability of our power grid, Victorville is proud to
 be part of the solution."
     Clean, reliable, cost-effective energy has become a priority for the
 growing City of Victorville as the region continues to expand and attract
 new businesses and residents from the surrounding areas of San Bernardino,
 Riverside and Los Angeles. Air-conditioning is a substantial component of
 the expanding community's demand on the power grid. The ten new Ice Bear
 units expand Victorville's pioneering peak demand shifting program, which
 has already deployed 31 Ice Bear units at municipally owned buildings
 throughout the city. By shifting energy demand for the city's air
 conditioners to off-peak hours when electricity is cleaner and more
 abundant, Ice Energy estimates that Victorville's 10 additional Ice Bear
 units will reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 175 tons and reduce nitrogen
 oxide emissions by nearly 370 lbs over the next five years.
     "As an early adopter of our technology, Victorville demonstrated
 pioneering leadership in addressing critical energy and environmental
 concerns, and we look forward to continuing to support its city leaders,
 residents and businesses in expanding those efforts as the community
 continues to flourish," said Frank Ramirez, CEO of Ice Energy.
     In May 2007, Ice Energy accepted the 2007 Flex Your Power Award with
 Victorville City Council Member, Bob Hunter, at an awards ceremony in San
 Francisco. Honored in the "Demand Response/Conservation" category, the
 Victorville program was selected from several hundred applicants for its
 outstanding leadership in reducing electricity consumption during peak
 hours of the day.
