Hometown Connections And PowerSecure Form Alliance To Offer Public Power Utilities Backup And Peak Shaving Distributed Generation, Solar Power, LED Lighting

Stocks in this article: POWR

To help public power systems provide standby power generation for use during outages and during costly periods of peak demand, and to deliver energy and maintenance savings from outdoor LED lighting to their commercial and industrial customers, Hometown Connections will market distributed generation, solar power and lighting solutions from PowerSecure International, Inc. (NYSE: POWR), the two companies announced today.

Hometown Connections is the utility services subsidiary of the American Public Power Association (APPA). APPA member organizations will receive a discount on all PowerSecure services and solutions. PowerSecure partners with municipal electric systems to offer customers true turn-key engineered-to-order backup power systems (stationary or mobile) which integrate a peak-shaving energy efficiency capability and provide critical power protection to many vital industries, hospitals and military facilities. PowerSecure also designs and installs solar energy systems which use photovoltaic panels to generate power without moving parts or fuel, and has energy efficient LED parking lot, street and area lighting solutions for utilities, municipalities and local businesses.

“We are thrilled to join with Hometown Connections to expand our service to public power utilities,” said Sidney Hinton, chief executive officer, PowerSecure. “Our distributed generation solutions provide on-site standby power and peak shaving capabilities to support utilities and their commercial, institutional and industrial customers. Our public power utility partners and their large customers benefit from our system’s highly dependable backup power supply during outages, and more efficient, environmentally friendly source of power during high cost periods of peak power demand. And our LED area light has been specifically engineered for public power customers to reduce maintenance and operating costs, while delivering a superior quality of light.”

PowerSecure tracks the status of more than 1,300 distributed generation systems across the country every minute of every day from its command centers in North Carolina and Georgia for its utility partners and their commercial and industrial customers. PowerSecure also actively monitors load profiles and pricing in real time, and remotely activates units during peak demand periods. The system can utilize a variety of fuel sources, including diesel, natural gas, landfill gas and others as customers require.
