Premier Alliance Group, Inc. Selected to Provide Auto Demand Response Services to Orange County Municipality

CHARLOTTE, NC--(Marketwire - May 21, 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 Solution Division, GreenHouse ( has been engaged to implement Southern California Edison's (SCE) Automated Demand Response (Auto-DR) program for a prominent Orange County municipality. Premier will be implementing the latest in automation and monitoring technologies utilizing the $225,000 of incentives from SCE for which the city is eligible. Once installed and operational, SCE will benefit by the municipality's ability to voluntarily load shed over 750kW of electricity during peak demand periods. This process also protects consumer prices by mitigating the need for SCE to produce electricity from older or more expensive power plants.

Premiers' GreenHouse division is a qualified service provider of SCE's Auto-DR program, providing audits, site assessment, feasibility studies, project development, engineering, and installation of enabling technologies including complete processing of all utility documents.

"Implementing Demand Response initiatives is a primary focus of this company and we are excited to work with Southern California Edison whose Auto-DR program is a leader in the industry," remarked John Galt, President over Solutions. "Municipalities are in a great position to take advantage of SCE's program and we're very pleased Premier was selected for this opportunity."

"This is a prime example of how ADR programs are supposed to work," commented Rob Davis Senior Vice President of Energy Services for Premier Alliance. "Once complete, this forward thinking city will have the ability to shed enough power to support 50 average California households, but without causing significant disruption to their own day-to-day business activities."
