NuElectric Corporation Prepares for Tighter Arsenic Standards In Drinking Water

    TARPON SPRINGS, Fla., April 20 /PRNewswire Interactive News Release/ --
 NuElectric Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board:   NRGE), an incubator for new
 technologies that conserve energy and protect the environment announced today
 that the Company is continuing to prepare for announced plans by the
 Environmental Protection Agency to reduce the level of arsenic in drinking
 water.
     Earlier this week the Bush Administration announced plans to tighten the
 standards for levels of arsenic in drinking water within the next nine months.
     Christine Whitman, administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency,
 stated that she was asking the National Academy of Sciences to examine the
 impact of a range of possible reductions.  Whitman said she wanted a panel of
 scientists at the academy to examine a standard in the range of 3 to 20 parts
 per billion.  The current standard of 50 ppb was set by the EPA in 1975, based
 on a Public Health Service standard originally established in 1942.
     Whitman said that the decision to seek a report from the academy would
 ensure that a standard will be put in place in a timely manner that provides
 clean, safe and affordable drinking water for the nation and is based on the
 best science.
     "It appears that the Bush Administration is committed to protecting the
 environment and the health of all Americans and is promising a final
 regulation within nine months," commented NuElectric President Laurie Scala.
     NuElectric Corp. owns the worldwide exclusive license to an exciting
 technology capable of removing arsenic from water.  According to a coalition
 of environmentalists using research from the Environmental Protection Agency
 (EPA), at least 34 million Americans drink tap water that contains
 unacceptable levels of arsenic.
     Long term exposure to low concentrations of arsenic in drinking water can
 lead to skin, bladder, lung, and prostate cancer.  Non-cancer effects of
 ingesting arsenic at low levels include cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and
 anemia, as well as reproductive and developmental, immunological, and
 neurological effects.
