Apr 30, 2001, 01:00 ET from USPowerSolutions

    CAMBRIDGE, Mass., April 30 /PRNewswire/ -- USPowerSolutions, the leading
 Business Service Provider (BSP) of customer-centric, enterprise-wide solutions
 for the restructuring energy marketplace, has obtained GISB 1.4 certification
 by the Gas Industry Standards Board (GISB) for its PowerUp-G product.
     "This is an important market differentiator for USPowerSolutions.  Our
 customers want cost-effective and robust E-commerce solutions when it comes to
 trading partner management," as stated by Chris Garrick, Vice President of
 Engineering of USPowerSolutions.  "GISB certification tells our customers that
 we are in-tuned to the regulatory changes that are occurring in the energy
 marketplace and to the secure and reliable ways to communicate with trading
 partners.  Our goal is to always listen to our customers and provide them with
 solutions that meet the strictest requirements of E-commerce.  GISB 1.4
 certification illustrates that commitment."
     PowerUp-G provides the transport mechanism for secured E-commerce
 transactions, delivered via the Internet, instead of over costly Value-Added
 Networks (VANs).  PowerUp-G is available bundled with our PowerSolution(R)
 core technology platform, or as a separate service for competitive energy
 providers.  PowerUp-G provides real-time, online access to reports, logs, and
 archives of all transactions.  It also produces a complete audit trail of
 every transaction for cost-effective error identification and rapid dispute
 resolution.
     "USPowerSolutions is the first company thus far to complete the GISB 1.4
 certification process - several other companies have completed Version 1.3
 certification," noted Rae McQuade, GISB Executive Director.  Ms. McQuade
 further noted, "GISB certification is an important public acknowledgement that
 a company, through selection of a certified product such as PowerUp-G, is
 committed to using standards developed and endorsed by the industry.  We are
 pleased that USPowerSolutions has chosen to certify its product, and provide
 such a product to the industry for its use."
