Crosslands Utility Services, CRDY's Energy Subsidiary, Well Positioned to Benefit From Obama Administration's $3.4 Billion "Smart Grid" Grants

FORT WORTH, TX--(Marketwire - November 11, 2009) - Crosslands Energy Corp. (PINKSHEETS: CRDY) reports the Obama Administration recently announced that the Department of Energy (DOE) had made $3.4 billion in grants to electric utilities to accelerate development of an electrical "Smart Grid." It is anticipated that these grants will result in revolutionary changes in ways electricity is generated and managed. Grant recipients included at least eight major utilities that are existing customers of Crosslands Utility Services, Inc. ("Crosslands"), a wholly owned subsidiary of Crosslands Energy Corp.

Crosslands' products, incorporating its proprietary technology, are integral components of the emerging "Smart Grid" system being developed in the United States and abroad. An "electricity grid" is an aggregate of multiple networks and multiple power generation companies with multiple operators employing varying levels of communication and coordination, most of which are manually controlled. Smart grids increase the connectivity, automation and coordination between these suppliers, consumers and networks thus utilizing the utility more efficiently and reducing costs.

Crosslands' President David Hayslip was quoted as saying, "The timing of the DOE grants is fortuitous for the growth and development of our business plans."
