PALM SPRINGS, Calif., April 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Attune RTD (OTCBB:AURT), is proud to announce its proprietary BrioWave technology has been approved for financing under the California PACE program. California's PACE program gives local property owners access to affordable financing for energy and water efficient improvements that can reduce overall utility expenses. The amount of financing available to each property owner is determined by the property's assessed value and requires no money down and no credit check. The financing is paid back annually over a period up to 20 years and is transferrable if the property is sold or transferred. According to Shawn Davis, C.E.O, "We feel this is a great opportunity, especially since our newest vendor, Desert Electric Supply is very knowledgeable about the program. We believe they will be able to include BrioWave technology in other proposals further increasing unit sales. They reach a substantial portion of the local market, the Coachella Valley is quite large with a population over 365,000. Additionally, only BrioWave technology can enhance and improve utility side distribution giving the utility industry access to demand response tools and real time data that can be used for predictive business intelligence purposes and more." According to Thomas Bianco, the company's C.F.O, "This is a wonderful program presenting even more opportunity. In my opinion, every homeowner in the state of California and abroad for that matter with a pool or central air conditioning system should own this low cost right now solution because they stand to reduce energy consumption substantially and save an average of 40% annually, that helps people right now. BrioWave technology can pay for itself in as little as one year based on the amount of savings realized. With approximately 15 million pools across the U.S, and another 85 million residential homes with a central air conditioner, there's tremendous sales opportunity at home and even more in Europe."
Figtree is partnering with public agencies, private companies, suppliers, contractors and non-profit organizations to help finance energy efficient products. Their extensive experience with PACE (Property Assessed Clean Energy) helped them author a financing program called California PACE. This popular financing program is now offered to commercial property owners in participating cities and counties throughout California. Our California PACE financing program gives government leaders and administrators the opportunity to reach their goals to reduce energy consumption and create jobs. When a commercial property owner has access to government approved and adopted financing, it allows them to buy energy efficient products and equipment. Those purchases stimulate the local economy and create job opportunities for approved contractors. Our goal is to work in partnership with government agencies, commercial property owners and approved contractors. For more information please visit; http://www.figtreecompany.com/
