MINEOLA, N.Y., Sept. 30, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Clear Skies Solar, Inc. (CSS) (OTCBB:CSKH), a full-service renewable energy provider to commercial, industrial and agricultural clients, today announced it has received notice from Met Laboratories, an independent testing facility, that the XTRAX® units tested were verified to be operating within meter industry guidelines.
The first seven ANSI tests relating to accuracy and continuity have shown compliance with ANSI standards. Carbon 612's own testing showed a margin of error of less than one half of one percent, making it valuable for accurate monetization of Renewable Energy Credits, PPA providers, utility and industrial sub-monitoring.
The US patent for XTRAX is held by Carbon 612, which is a majority-owned subsidiary of CSS. With the ability to monitor with a high degree of accuracy and a low installed cost, XTRAX is designed for the mass markets throughout the US and elsewhere, and its patent applications are pending in European and Chinese markets.
"The XTRAX hardware, firmware and our server-based software was developed in-house with plans on entering into several additional renewable-based markets. By expanding the Carbon 612 recurring-revenue model, we will be ensuring that our market positioning and growth will be well-rounded," said Ezra Green, CEO of Clear Skies Solar.
Continuing, Mr. Green said: "We are pleased that we are able to announce the progress made with our technology and look forward to bringing XTRAX, the next generation of comprehensive energy tracking, to the mass markets."
