Castrovilla, Inc., (“CI”) a subsidiary of Blue Earth, Inc., is expanding its energy efficiency retrofit model into Southern California, Oregon, Washington, Nevada, Arizona, Utah, and Idaho. 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. CI is hiring additional personnel to provide energy efficiency retrofit services under the leadership of Mr. John Pink, President of CI.
CI has served over 6,000 small businesses and several utilities in Northern California. CI participates in numerous utility ratepayer-funded energy efficiency rebate programs, one of which CI successfully developed for the utilities called “KEEP YOUR COOL”. For small businesses, it performs energy audits and comprehensive commercial refrigeration efficiency upgrades in restaurants, supermarkets, refrigerated warehouses, and other businesses, saving its customers tens of millions in utility expenses.
CI has created a business model for substantially 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. CI is well-positioned in terms of capabilities and relationships with utilities and the energy services companies (ESCO) running the third-party programs. CI intends to become a statewide and regional supplier of utility scale energy efficiency resources delivered by its customized, turnkey, vertically-integrated small commercial programs.
In addition to energy efficiency retrofits, CI also has on-going contracts to provide periodic maintenance to numerous restaurants and other refrigerated facilties throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.
CI management believes that the key to sustaining and expanding its services is to take part or take advantage of a constant stream of technological innovation. By identifying, evaluating, and verifying the best new measures, CI is able to serve its 5,400 small commercial customers and bring in new ones.
CI establishes Blue Earth’s position in the rapidly growing energy efficiency sector by providing seasoned EE business developers, important relationships with utilities, and a large customer base that includes regional and national companies.
