Encore Clean Energy Announces Phase Two of Its Geothermal Venture With ThermaSource

New Venture to Build, Own and Operate MPGs for Installation in Existing Geothermal Facilities

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 19, 2006 -- Encore Clean Energy, Inc. (OTC BB: ECLN) today announced that based upon the Company's recent demonstration of its Phase One Magnetic Piston Generator (MPG) prototype, ThermaSource Inc. has agreed to proceed to Phase Two of its agreement with the Company. This stage includes the formation of a geothermal energy development company whose activities will initially be restricted to exclusive operations in the geothermal-rich territory of California.

ThermaSource is an internationally recognized geothermal technology firm run by energy veteran Louis Capuano.

In Phase Two, the Encore/ThermaSource venture proposes to engineer, build and demonstrate a larger-scale MPG. This proposed new MPG will be designed to be installed on a geothermal well-bore, connected to heat exchangers in a closed-loop for converting the "free fuel" of geothermal heat into a valuable new source of electricity. ThermaSource has received a conditional commitment letter from a major geothermal facility in The Geysers geothermal field in Northern California to test such Phase Two MPG geothermal heat recovery unit.
