EASI Energy-Saving Technologies Cutting Electric Bills – and Greenhouse Gases – in More Than 60 Countries

June 17, 2009

NASHVILLE, Tenn., June 17 /PRNewswire/ — Greenhouse gas emissions for businesses and governments in the U.S. and more than 60 countries are being reduced by Energy Automation Systems, Inc. (EASI), an American company that for years has guaranteed and achieved specific energy savings – and now provides greenhouse gas emissions reductions – for its customers.

Nashville, Tenn.-based EASI enables across-the-board greenhouse gas reductions while achieving energy cost savings of between 10 and 30 percent. EASI’s energy-savings estimates are guaranteed by the company and backed by Lloyd’s of London. General Electric, General Cable, BP, Conagra and the Saudi Basic Industries Corp. are among the thousands of customers who have installed EASI’s engineered technologies.

Energy Automation Systems, Inc. (EASI) greenhouse gas reduction verification procedures provide companies with an opportunity to seek carbon credits resulting from their lowered energy usage.

“EASI technologies reduce electricity usage – and greenhouse gases – by substantially reducing wasteful heat and inefficiencies in a facility’s electrical system,” said Joe Merlo, EASI founder and chief executive officer. “This results in far fewer kilowatt hours used, with resulting benefits for everyone from our customer to the communities near the facility.”

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in April stated that greenhouse gas emissions, including carbon dioxide, are a threat to health. The EPA determined that greenhouse gas emissions are dangerous enough to bring about action under federal air pollution laws. Businesses and governments help themselves economically and environmentally as they cut greenhouse gases.

Power plants that burn fossil fuels to generate electricity release pollutants and gases into the atmosphere. By reducing electricity use, EASI technologies cut customers’ electric bills and the amount of fuels burned to provide power for them, said Dr. Paul Bleiweis, EASI president.

“As businesses use less electricity, electric companies use less generation capacity and fewer pollutants are released into the air,” Bleiweis said. “The amount of electricity a business uses is shown on its bill as kilowatt hours. After an EASI system is installed we compare the electric bill’s kilowatt hours to a comparable period before the installation. This is how we measure and verify the electricity savings EASI guarantees.”

Merlo said that EPA data show the types of fuel used by utility companies to generate electricity. Using that information, the quantities of gas and pollutants emitted into the atmosphere can be estimated for each kilowatt hour generated.

“To determine an EASI customer’s contribution to reducing greenhouse gas emissions we calculate the reduction based on the number of kilowatt hours we save the customer. This is done individually because the data varies by geographical area and is mainly determined by fuel type used by the utility.”

Merlo said EASI has provided energy savings guarantees for customers for 17 years and in 2007 EASI began providing estimates of greenhouse gas reductions.

“When I started in the energy-reduction business more than 31 years ago customers cared only about the cost savings on their electric bills,” Merlo said. “Gradually they have become more interested in helping to protect the environment and improving their ‘green’ image. EASI helps them accomplish both, and that’s an advantage to every one of our customers.”
