Letter From CGE Energy President/CEO Bryan Zaplitny

BRIGHTON, MI--(Marketwired - Feb 3, 2015) -

"The earth will not continue to offer its harvest, except with faithful stewardship. We cannot say we love the land and then take steps to destroy it for use by future generations." 
Pope John Paul II

Greetings, shareholders of the forthcoming CGE Energy. I am now able to address shareholders of McKenzie Bay International (MKBY) (OTC PINK: MKBY) and Clean Green Energy LLC members as one.

It is with great pleasure that I address you today as we stand together at the crossroads of exciting times. January 31st marked our merger with McKenzie Bay International as well as the countdown to the finalization of FINRA filings to be completed by the end of the month. 

But more than a merger of companies has occurred. A convergence of powerful ideas that have the potential to greatly shift the cultural norms of how we utilize energy is now before us, and it is incumbent on us to steward this tremendous opportunity well.

In this letter, I want to give you a peek behind CGE Energy's curtain, so you can share in our vision, our plans and the reasoning and values that drive them. The organizations that have partnered with us and the individuals that have invested in us are like-minded visionaries in their own right. They see beyond the projects we are working on. They see a sustainable future.

Power to Make a Difference
The phrase "Power to Make a Difference" resides beneath our logo at CGE Energy. These words are more than a slogan or a catchphrase to us. They act as the cornerstone on which we base all that we do as a company. The reduction of energy consumption and the generation of renewable energy may be what we do, but making a difference in our world is why we come in to work each day to do it.

Power for our Partners
Everyone who works for CGE owns part of the company. This has come out of my equity holding, and this is my investment in the talented individuals that form our team. They are creative, hardworking, and most important, people of integrity.

We also have strategic partners who have come alongside us in our world-changing endeavors. Some of these industry-leading companies include Cree LED -- the lighting company that shines brighter, lasts longer and is positioned better than any other in the market -- and SolarWorld, whose 38 years of US manufacturing experience will add greatly to our complete integrated solutions offering.

As stated above, we are also entering a new chapter as a publicly traded company by way of our now effective merger with McKenzie Bay International. I thank Kevin Cook and the board for their efforts and commitment to their shareholders over the years. We at CGE are just as committed to increasing value for our current and future shareholders.

Throughout this journey, I've been asked "Why?" Well, I'm a shareholder too! Every decision made at CGE is made in the best interest of everyone who has chosen to invest in our commercial future as a company and our environmental future as a community. 

Power to Inspire
Finally, the inspiring words of Pope John Paul II are worthy of much consideration. We at CGE believe that we as people must change in order to change the planet. We are motivated to share our technologies with the greater world in order to see a concerted effort in the use of renewable energy. This is seen for instance in our YMCA "Net Zero" program, aimed at creating a facility that produces energy in a socially responsible manner while creating a hands-on learning experience for students. The goal in all that we do is to foster a desire for a more holistic view of energy in our communities so that our efforts will continue in posterity.

In a way, we are a for-profit company with the heart of a non-profit. We aren't interested in changing the world simply to make money, but we make money to enable us to change the world. When we prioritize our pursuit to make the world a better place, we believe we will create the most value for our shareholders in both the near future and over the long term.

Thank you for taking the time to read this brief letter. You can look forward to monthly updates from me that will continue to detail our exciting new projects.

President/CEO, CGE Energy
