Blue Earth Appoints Governor Bill Richardson, Former Secretary of the Department of Energy, to the Board of Directors

HENDERSON, NV--(Marketwired - October 22, 2013) - Blue Earth, Inc. (OTCQB: BBLU) is pleased to announce that Governor Bill Richardson has been appointed to the Board of Directors. Governor Richardson is a leading proponent of renewable energy and energy efficiency solutions. His extensive experience as a leader in energy policy at the state and federal level is expected to be of great benefit, as BBLU becomes a significant owner of distributed generation power plants and for our energy efficiency business and the roll out of our new battery and energy management control technologies. Additional directors are expected to be appointed prior to an exchange listing.

Governor Richardson is the former Secretary of the United States Department of Energy, former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, and former Governor of New Mexico. Governor Richardson completed his second term in 2011 as Governor of New Mexico, where in 2006, he was re-elected by the largest margin of victory for any Governor in state history. He also served as a New Mexico Congressman representing the Third Congressional District for fifteen years.

Governor Richardson made New Mexico the "Clean Energy State" by requiring utilities to meet 20% of New Mexico's electrical demand from renewable sources, and established a Renewable Energy Transmission Authority to deliver New Mexico's world-class renewable resources to market. Prior to serving as Governor, Richardson had a very successful career in public service and has been nominated several times for the Nobel Peace Prize. 

Governor Richardson said, "I'm excited to share my expertise with the Blue Earth team to advance alternative/renewable energy and energy efficiency projects that reduce customer energy usage and costs, while also reducing reliance on fossil fuels."

"We are honored with the addition of Governor Richardson to our board," said Laird Q. Cagan, Chairman of Blue Earth, Inc. "He has demonstrated exceptional leadership skills on energy policy at the state and national level. His extensive expertise in the energy industry makes him a great addition for advancing the Company's long term growth objectives."
