GreenHouse Holdings to Implement Southern California Edison's Automated Demand Response Program for 3 Customers

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - January 20, 2011) - GreenHouse Holdings, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: GRHU) (OTCQB: GRHU) ("GreenHouse"), a leading provider of energy efficiency solutions and sustainable infrastructure products, today announced that it has been engaged to implement Southern California Edison's (SCE) Automated Demand Response (Auto-DR) program for three commercial/industrial customers. The customers include the PepsiCo® Carson bottling facility, Sigma Plating and CRP MB Studio, LLC.

GreenHouse estimates that the projects will generate $500,000 in revenue to the company. This projection is based upon approximately 1,500 kW or 1.5 MW of electricity demand reduction and infrastructure improvements from the engagements. GreenHouse is a qualified service provider of SCE's Auto-DR program, providing site assessment, feasibility studies, project development, engineering, and installation of enabling technologies including complete processing of all utility documents.

"Auto-DR is a rapidly growing aspect of our energy efficiency portfolio that can reap benefits for a wide range of commercial and industrial organizations, as evidenced by the diversity of these three unique customers," said Russ Earnshaw, President of GreenHouse. "We are very pleased to be working Sigma Plating and CRP MB Studio to help them take advantage of Southern California Edison's Auto-DR program. Management is extremely fortunate to assist another PepsiCo facility in their conservation efforts."

About Automated Demand Response

The Auto-DR program offers significant financial incentives and technical support to Southern California Edison (SCE) customers willing to install equipment that enables participation in demand response events versus depending on their employees to perform all the curtailment activities manually when required. Normally, control systems (automation) are installed with the programming needed to achieve reductions in electricity consumption during peak periods of demand on the grid. "Participants in SCE's Auto-DR program are in 100% control of the actual curtailment measures implemented on an event-to-event basis. By utilizing an Auto-DR system, participants will have real-time usage information and the technical means to reduce electric consumption during costly peak energy periods when the demand is highest. On-going financial benefits can be realized from program enrollment and DR event participation (benefits vary from program to program). Additionally, the systems commonly implemented for Auto-DR participation are fully capable of being used to improve productivity and equipment operating efficiencies as well as provide users with information that can augment routine and emergency operations and maintenance regimens," adds Robert Davis, Vice President of Energy Services at GreenHouse.
