EarthPoint Energy Simplifies Green Energy Adoption for Ottawa Homeowners

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 25, 2010) - EarthPoint Inc. (Elmira, ON.) and Independent Green Energy LLC (New York, NY) announce the launch of EarthPoint Energy in Ottawa on March 25th at the Ottawa Home and Garden Show. EarthPoint will provide Canadians with improved access to geothermal energy sourced heating, cooling and domestic hot water for their homes. EarthPoint allows all home owners and new home builders to access geothermal energy while eliminating the upfront costs usually associated with installing geothermal energy systems.

As a full service geothermal energy provider, EarthPoint performs all installation, service and warranty for the geothermal access points for the life of the home. This partnership will offer Ottawa residents the greatest single green option in a format everyone can afford; switching to a heating and cooling system that provides real and immediate environmental benefits. We recognized that heating and cooling represents as much as 70% of a home's energy costs, something we aim to reduce and cap for the life of the home. Further, EarthPoint expects to save up to 5 tons of CO2 annually per household, equivalent to 1200 gallons of crude oil.

"We are incredibly proud to be associated with this endeavor to provide clean energy access to a larger cross section of homeowners in Ottawa. We expect to see a dramatic rise in the acceptance of geothermal technology for home heating and cooling as a result of this program." Adam Patterson, CEO Independent Green Energy

"It was only natural for EarthPoint to launch a service that took the hassles and risks out of the adopting geothermal technology. We intend to facilitate high quality adoption of geothermal services in Ottawa through an affordable monthly energy bill. We are very excited about this launch and look forward to expanding the program throughout Canada over the next two years." Randal Palach, President EarthPoint Inc.
