    SEATTLE, WA, Feb. 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - MicroPlanet, (MP:TSXV &
 MCTYF:OTC) a clean technology, energy conservation company, announced today
 that the Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD), has released their
 Advanced Technologies Evaluation Report dated December 2007. The report
 demonstrates that MicroPlanet products reduced kWh energy consumption by
 approximately 10% on air conditioning and lighting loads. The testing was
 done over a 131 day period at a customer site.
 
     The SMUD report concluded that MicroPlanet products manage line voltage
 to optimal levels, improving the efficiency of air conditioning systems and
 reducing the amount of energy necessary for operations. SMUD also concluded
 that deploying MicroPlanet products can boost line voltage where it is low,
 mitigating voltage flicker and improving the power factor.
 
     According to the SMUD report, MicroPlanet products saved significant
 amounts of energy and improved the power quality for their customers.
 "Since the majority of California's summer peak electric demand is due to
 residential air conditioning, SMUD was particularly interested in
 evaluating the efficiency of air conditioning systems operating at lower
 than typical utility line voltages," said Bruce Lisanti CEO of MicroPlanet.
 "This report clearly demonstrates the potential of our advanced technology
 to conserve energy."
 
     "As a result of this report, SMUD is now looking at MicroPlanet's
 products for their energy efficiency rebate programs. These programs
 encourage energy conservation and can speed the large-scale adoption of our
 technology in California. Both residential and commercial clients can
 substantially reduce their energy consumption. Our customers can save
 energy, lower their utility bills and help reduce greenhouse gas
 emissions", said Lisanti.
 
     MicroPlanet is working with more than 30 utilities worldwide, in
 addition to many large commercial accounts. The company has installed over
 600 systems in pilot programs, which continue to return very positive
 results. 5-8% reductions in energy consumption in residential applications
 and 5-12% in commercial environments are common without requiring any
 changes in customer behavior patterns.
