BRIDGEWATER, N.J., April 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Energy Edge Technologies Corp. (OTCBB: EEDG) has become the first Corporate Sponsor for newly formed VetPower.org, a non-profit organization dedicated to retraining veterans to gain employment and start their own businesses in market sectors exhibiting high growth opportunities. Energy Edge has contributed the funding to cover start-up expenses for VetPower.org and will implement a new training program developed with VetPower.org that's expected to quickly generate work for dozens of veterans, and additional revenue for EEDG.
VetPower.org is a direct result of the partnership recently formed between the American Alliance for Disabled Veterans and the Trillacorpe family of Service Disabled Veteran Owned businesses. Both organizations have been honored with numerous awards over the last 20 years for their leading roles in the retraining and placement of returning vets into the civilian workforce.
EEDG will implement a comprehensive training program augmenting the unparalleled training already invested into every vet by the U.S. Military. EEDG will provide specific energy industry training, leveraging VetPower.org's superior military retraining program. EEDG expects to employ a large number of experienced vets in the rapidly expanding energy efficiency sector across multiple roles including sales, engineering and project management.
"This is truly a no-brainer," stated Robert Holdsworth, President of EEDG. "Veterans need employment opportunities and Energy Edge needs a skilled team to attract and service business opportunities nationwide. We are committed to giving as many veterans as possible the means to thrive in the burgeoning energy sector."
"Today we are proud to showcase the expandable business model that we have pioneered with our good friends at Energy Edge," said Frank Campanaro, co-founder of both Trillacorpe and VetPower.org. "It is a model that enables companies and non-profits to come together to benefit America's warriors and provide them a seat at the table of economic freedom, which they have all protected with enormous sacrifice."
Kevin Humes, President and co-founder of AADV and VetPower.org concluded, "On behalf of everyone at VetPower.org, I want to express our deepest appreciation to EEDG and their outstanding team of professionals and look forward to our joint crusade to positively impact the lives of our veterans and their families."
