Stocks in this article: ASPW CWST

ROCHESTER, N.Y., Sept. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Arista Power, Inc. ("Arista Power") (OTCBB: ASPW), a developer, manufacturer, and supplier of custom-designed power management systems, renewable energy storage systems, wind turbines, and a supplier and designer of solar energy systems, announced today that Casella Waste Systems, Inc. ("Casella") (NASDAQ: CWST), a solid waste, recycling, and resource management services company, has purchased a Mobile Renewable Power Station ("MRPS") from Arista Power.  The MRPS will be used for mobile power and clean energy marketing at Casella's promotional events.

Mark Matthews, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Arista Power, said, "This is an example of taking what we've developed for our government customers, the U.S. Army and the FBI, and applying it to commercial opportunities.  There are companies with sustainability goals similar to the environmental stewardship program that Casella has implemented that are reaching out to us to investigate the use case of mobile power for a variety of community and corporate applications and events."

Mr. Matthews also said, "Our customers are recognizing the value of our MRPS' and Renewable Power Stations' ability to replace diesel generators in remote locations in a cost-effective manner with clean energy.  Each of our Renewable Power Stations and MRPSs are customized to optimize the renewable energy available and to fit the budget of the customer.  For example, we recently quoted a MRPS to a government entity that is very solar concentrated because that particular location does not have much wind but is ideal for solar.  Arista Power's MRPSs and Renewable Power Stations can be used for remote power generation at telecommunication sites, oil and gas drilling sites, mining operations, border patrol, and numerous other applications."

Casella is an early adopter in the corporate environmental stewardship field.  As early as 2003, the company demonstrated its commitment to fighting climate change.  That year, Casella became the first solid waste and recycling services company in the nation to join the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) Climate Leaders Program. This voluntary industry-government partnership ended in 2011, but Casella remains committed to measuring its carbon footprint each year and working to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
