NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 06/07/11 -- GreenHouse Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB: GRHU), a leading provider of energy efficiency solutions and sustainable infrastructure products, today announced that it has been engaged to implement Southern California Edison's (SCE) Automated Demand Response (Auto-DR) program for two International Paper facilities in Camarillo and Santa Paula, CA. Initially, GreenHouse will work with site personnel to determine the various benefits Auto-DR can yield to both International Paper and SCE. Implementation of the integration project will also represent as much as $400,000 in revenues to GreenHouse and its subsidiaries.
GreenHouse is a qualified service provider of SCE's Auto-DR program, providing site assessment, feasibility studies, project development, engineering, and installation of enabling technologies including complete processing of all utility documents.
'Auto-DR is an important part of the GreenHouse portfolio of services and represents just one of the solutions we offer that will help change the way our nation looks at power production and energy consumption,' stated Russ Earnshaw, President of GreenHouse. 'We are extremely pleased to be selected by International Paper and we look forward to helping them realize cost reductions and plant efficiency goals.'
'This is a perfect example of the great relationships we have with our partners,' commented Rob Davis, Vice President of Energy Services for GreenHouse. 'This success comes as a direct result of our recent partnership with EnergyConnect Inc.; we are happy to be adding value to their clients and look forward to delivering the same benefits to more joint customers in the future.'

About Automated Demand Response
The Auto-DR program offers significant financial incentives and technical support to Southern California Edison (SCE) customers willing to install equipment that enables participation in demand response events versus depending on their employees to perform all the curtailment activities manually when required. Normally, control systems (automation) are installed with the programming needed to achieve reductions in electricity consumption during peak periods of demand on the grid. 'Participants in SCE's Auto-DR program are in 100% control of the actual curtailment measures implemented on an event-to-event basis. Additionally, the systems commonly implemented for Auto-DR participation are fully capable of being used to improve productivity and equipment operating efficiencies as well as provide users with information that can augment routine and emergency operations and maintenance regimens,' adds Robert Davis, Vice President of Energy Services at GreenHouse.
