Premier Alliance Group, Inc., Selected to Provide Auto Demand Response Services to the City of West Covina

CHARLOTTE, NC--(Marketwire - Apr 3, 2012) - Premier Alliance Group, Inc (OTCBB: PIMO), a professional services company focused on business and technology advisory and consulting services and solutions, today announced that its Energy Division - Greenhouse, has been engaged to implement Southern California Edison's (SCE) Automated Demand Response (Auto-DR) program for the City of West Covina. GreenHouse has identified over $30,000 of incentives from SCE, for which the city is eligible to apply towards enabling Auto-DR. Once installed and operational, SCE will be able to call upon city officials to voluntarily load shed up to 100 kW of electricity during peak usage periods.

Premiers' Greenhouse division 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. The contract with the City of West Covina entails investigation and development of a complete engineering scope; an analysis of the L.A. County Energy Management System interface requirements to determine how to effectively integrate current Automated Demand Response technology; engineering services; and a verification test of the automatic load shed provided by the installation.

"Municipalities are ideal candidates for Auto-DR initiatives," said Rob Davis, Vice President of Energy Services for Premier Alliance. "The city of West Covina will realize significant cost savings, as well as, inroads to meeting their own power consumption and emissions reduction goals for 2012 and beyond."
