Controls Engineering, Inc. Contracted to Provide "Turn-Key" Automation System for AECOM Water Remediation Project

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Aug 11, 2011) - GreenHouse Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB: GRHU) a leading provider of energy efficiency solutions and sustainable infrastructure products, today announced that its wholly owned subsidiary Controls Engineering, Inc. (CEI) has been contracted by AECOM to provide control system engineering for a groundwater remediation project in Carson, CA representing over $160,000 in revenue to the Energy Division of GreenHouse.

The project entails implementation of AECOM's Enhanced In-Situ Bioremediation (EISB), which chemically remediates ground water aquifers, and in this case will specifically address three highly toxic carcinogenic compounds, 1,2-dichloroethane, trichloroethylene and vinyl chloride. CEI will be responsible for the control system engineering, programming, control panel design and fabrication, startup support and training to manage 41 separate extraction/injection wells and chemical treatment compounds for the project. All the extraction wells and booster pumps will use a VFD speed control to optimize energy use and improve overall efficiency. The facility will be fully automated and allow total remote monitoring and control via Internet based software.

"We are extremely pleased to be working with AECOM on this important project," said Dave Lautner, Vice President of Business Development for CEI. "This is the kind of work that fits in perfectly with the overall message of efficiency and environmental sustainability that GreenHouse is known for and we're proud to have been selected."

"CEI represents a world-class level of engineering expertise that gives GreenHouse a tremendous competitive edge," commented Russ Earnshaw, President of GreenHouse, "and the award of this contract exemplifies the reputation they have in the engineering and automation industry."
