Blue Earth to Expand Its Energy Efficiency Retrofit Business

/ Source: GlobeNewswire

HENDERSON, Nev., May 10, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Blue Earth, Inc. (OTCBB:BBLU) is pleased to announce that its subsidiary, Castrovilla Inc. ("CI") is expanding its energy efficiency retrofit model into Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Nevada, Utah, Arizona and Southern California. The business expansion will use the Blue Earth Energy Management Services ("BEEMS") trade name as we build the Blue Earth brand as a premier company in the multi-billion dollar energy efficiency services sector. BEEM is hiring additional personnel to provide energy efficiency retrofit services under the leadership of Mr. John Pink, President of CI.

"This expansion of our business model has been a long term goal, that can now be realized due in part to our iPad based field energy audit software, scheduled for completion in July," stated John Pink.  "The software is expected to significantly improve the speed and accuracy of the energy audit/sales cycle by our sales force and it will enable us to train new employees quickly and effectively. Computer based versions of the software will be used in the interim as staffing is ramped up. We are excited at the opportunity to realize one of our long term goals, as expected, when we joined the Blue Earth family of companies."

According to Dr. Thomas, CEO/President of Blue Earth, "We expect the expanded business unit to generate over $20,000,000 in 2012 revenues with an EBITDA in excess of $3,000,000 based on scaling the existing CI business model. The net cost of the expansion during 2011 will only require a limited amount of cash from Blue Earth. Therefore, management does not anticipate a need to raise additional capital for this expansion or the manufacturing and marketing of the patented switch ballast lighting controls technology recently announced."

Blue Earth through its subsidiary CI, has created a business model for sustainably generating and delivering kW and kWh that benefits both the utility and the end user. CI provides energy efficiency services to small commercial businesses and delivers custom programs directly to utilities. The model is both expandable and scalable.
