NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 07/21/11 -- 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 the City of Carson. Preliminary audits conducted by GreenHouse indicate the city will be eligible for over $70,000 of incentives from SCE to deploy demand response initiatives, dramatically reducing the cost to implement the latest in building automation and energy management solutions. For its part, SCE will benefit by the city's ability to voluntarily reduce electricity consumption by over 300kW during peak demand periods, thus minimizing the need to procure and deliver more expensive electricity.
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.
'This is just the first step in proving how effective these programs can be even on a city and state level and not just manufacturing plants,' remarked Russ Earnshaw, President of GreenHouse. 'We are grateful that the City of Carson has chosen GreenHouse and look forward to helping them meet their energy saving goals for 2011 and beyond.'
'This will be a great example of how an Auto-DR program, like that of Southern California Edison, can have a real impact in the public sector,' commented Rob Davis, Vice President of Energy Services for GreenHouse. 'This is just one of many energy saving solutions GreenHouse offers that provides persistent and measureable financial benefits for municipalities affected by these tough economic times.'
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.
