CentraCan, Inc. Announces That Its Wholly-Owned Subsidiary, PerfPower Corporation, Has Been Approved as Choice Hotels International Qualified Vendor

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwire - September 7, 2010) -  CentraCan, Inc. (OTCBB: CTCJ), a sustainable energy solutions company, has announced that its PerfPower™ Go-Green™ alkaline batteries with free recycling can now be found at Choice Hotels franchised properties. Choice Hotels is making this product available in a move to reduce carbon emissions and to give eco-conscious travelers a green alternative when choosing their hotels.

PerfPower™ Go-Green™ alkaline battery line includes AA, AAA, C, D and 9-volt batteries for consumer and commercial use. PerfPower™ batteries are manufactured using recycled materials and contain no lead, mercury or cadmium. The batteries come with a free recycling initiative which allows a consumer to return used PerfPower™ batteries to a designated recycling facility at the Company's expense. The recycling program has been put in place to help prevent the improper disposal of PerfPower™ batteries. To facilitate return of used batteries, the Company has entered into a partnership with the United States Postal Service using their Priority Mail Flat Rate Boxes program and pre-paid labels supplied by the Company. Access to the recycling initiative is through the Company's web site www.iRecycled.com. In addition, a portion of the proceeds from each battery pack sold goes to Autism Speaks™, a non-profit organization dedicated to finding a cure to Autism and bringing hope to all who deal with the hardships of this disorder.

"EcoReady is happy to have Choice Hotels as the first hotel chain to use our battery brand. We are pleased to be able to help Choice Hotels with their initiative to offer travelers a green alternative," said Boris Rubizhevsky, Chairman and CEO of CentraCan, Inc. and PerfPower Corporation.

Choice Hotels International, Inc. (NYSE: CHH) franchises more than 485,000 rooms in the United States and has hotels in more than 35 different countries, under 10 brand names. The hotel group has long supported eco-friendly initiatives and this relationship underscores the brand's commitment to offer travelers more ways of living green.

"These batteries offer a great, free recycling alternative to throwing away batteries. We are happy to be contributing to a greener experience for our hotel's guests," said Rick Summa, Vice President of Procurement Services for Choice Hotels.
