ConEdison Solutions' Subsidiary Wins Approval From the State of Arizona to Deliver Energy Services to Public Facilities
WHITE PLAINS, NY, Sep 30, 2008 (MARKET WIRE via COMTEX News Network) -- ConEdison Solutions, one of America's leading energy service providers, announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Custom Energy Services, LLC, has been granted an award as an Energy Performance Contractor for the State of Arizona.

As a State-accredited energy services company, the firm is entitled to participate in Arizona's Energy Performance Contracting program, which provides energy efficiency services to state agencies, state universities, community colleges, cities, counties and K-12 schools. These public entities can use funds saved on their energy bills to update their energy infrastructure, and to improve the working and learning environments in their facilities. The ConEdison Solutions subsidiary was approved by Arizona through a competitive selection process.

"Energy efficiency today plays a vital role in promoting environmental preservation, reducing financial burdens on taxpayers, and helping our country become more self-reliant in respect to energy supplies," said James J. Dixon, Vice President of ConEdison Solutions. "We are gratified to win this designation from the state of Arizona. This forward-looking initiative allows public facilities in Arizona to take money saved on unnecessary energy spending and redirect those dollars toward a range of productive uses."

Arizona's selection of ConEdison Solutions continues a period of rapid growth for ConEdison Solutions' energy services business. The firm acquired BGA, Inc., a Tampa, Florida-based energy services and engineering firm, in May 2007. Soon after, ConEdison Solutions was selected by the country's largest owner of retail real estate, Simon Property Group, to expand its energy efficiency program at properties across the nation. Last May, ConEdison Solutions announced the acquisition of Custom Energy Services, LLC, a Kansas-based energy services provider with local staff in Phoenix, Arizona. In addition to energy efficiency services, ConEdison Solutions also provides retail electricity supply in 11 states and the District of Columbia.

ConEdison Solutions is a leading energy services company that provides competitive power supply, renewable energy, sustainability services, and cost-effective energy solutions for commercial, industrial, residential, and government customers. The company is based in White Plains, New York, with offices in Burlington, Massachusetts; Cherry Hill, New Jersey; Arlington, Virginia; Houston, Texas; Tampa, Florida; Durham, North Carolina and Overland Park, Kansas.
