July 27, 2012: Blue Earth Implements Additional $1.1 Million in Utility Refrigeration Incentives

July 27, 2012
HENDERSON, Nev. — Blue Earth Inc., an energy efficiency and renewable energy services company, announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Castrovilla Inc. d/b/a Blue Earth Energy Management Services™ (BEEMS™), is in the process of implementing an additional $1.1 million in utility-funded refrigeration rebate incentives under its Keep Your Cool™ program.

The Keep Your Cool program was designed to give electric utilities an efficiency program targeting business customers who operate commercial refrigeration equipment. The utility supported program offers energy efficiency retrofits like high-efficiency motors, LED lighting, and refrigeration control systems, which help improve a business’ bottom line by increasing equipment life and lowering energy bills.

Since 2007, the Keep Your Cool program has been supported and renewed by nearly 20 publicly owned utilities including the cities of Palo Alto, Roseville, Lodi, Redding, Santa Clara, Healdsburg, Truckee, Alameda, and others in California. Over 1,000 businesses have received energy efficiency retrofits under the program, receiving approximately $1.9 million in utility funded rebates. In addition, approximately 12 million kWh in first year savings has been achieved by the program.

“Keep Your Cool has delivered the energy savings to our customers as envisioned,” said Rob Lechner, manager of customer service for Lodi Electric Utility.

BEEMS provides turnkey refrigeration, lighting, and HVAC energy efficiency retrofit services and alternative energy solutions. BEEMS said it has serviced over 11,000 small businesses. Xnergy, another subsidiary of the company, is a provider of alternative energy solutions with 100 MW of interconnect experience over the past 11 years.

“With demonstrated experience and proven technologies and processes, BEEMS is able to provide smart, affordable energy efficient solutions to our utility customers,” said John Pink, president of Blue Earth Energy Management Services. “We understand our utility customers and are developing multiple energy efficient programs to meet their specific needs.”
