Ambassador Energy and California Flag Join Forces to Help 2009 Breeders' Cup Winners Go Green

Not Only Has Thoroughbred, California Flag, Always Sported Green Colors, but His Win Last Month at the $1 Million Breeders' Cup Turf Spring at Santa Anita Park Provided a Solid Start to the Efforts of Keith and Barbara Card to Take Their Ranch Green Through the Installation of a 25-Kilowatt Solar PV System

MURRIETA, CA--(Marketwire - December 16, 2009) - Ambassador Energy Inc., a uniquely scalable solar energy solutions company, was retained for the Card solar PV project at HiCard Ranch in La Cresta, an equestrian community in unincorporated Murrieta, California.

"I have known the owners of Ambassador Energy for years," said Keith Card, owner of California Flag and HiCard Ranch. "When they originally approached me with the idea of going green on the ranch, I knew it was a good idea and wanted to see how it penciled out. I got their quote, had my CPA review it and saw that it made great financial sense."

However compelling the financial case, though, the Cards had a bigger project on their hands in early November. Their "best horse ever," as 83-year-old Card calls him, California Flag, would soon be racing in the 2009 Breeders' Cup event at Santa Anita Park in Southern California. Card jokingly told Steve Fulgham, CEO of Ambassador Energy, that if their horse won, they would immediately start the "green" transition on the ranch.

When California Flag crossed the finish line a winner, Card made good on his promise and began the solar installation, acting quickly, as he wanted to take advantage of the federal tax incentive due to their $500,000+ winnings. The Ambassador Energy team quickly deployed all resources in order to complete the system prior to the 2009 year end. As a result the Cards will enjoy a 30% tax credit from the federal government.

"It's been a good year," said Barbara Card, "and it feels good to pay it forward and go green."
