Stellar Energy Enters Commissioning Stage on Contract to Provide Combined Heat & Power (CHP) Plant for Blue Earth, Inc.

The New $5.3 Million Energy-Efficient Plant Will Utilize Methane Waste for Electricity Generation and Other Uses at Pilgrim's Pride in South Carolina

JACKSONVILLE, FL, and HENDERSON, NV--(Marketwired - March 19, 2015) - Stellar Energy was selected by Blue Earth, Inc. (NASDAQ: BBLU), the renewable/alternative energy and energy efficiency services company, to design and supply a combined heat and power (CHP) plant. The CHP plant is at the Pilgrim's Pride Corporation poultry processing facility located in Sumter, South Carolina and is currently in the commissioning process and scheduled to turn on March 30, 2015. Blue Earth will own and operate the $5.3 million energy plant.

The highly efficient co-generation plant will utilize methane exhaust made from the Pilgrim's Pride digester to produce electricity, hot water and usable gas for plant boilers, dramatically reducing the facility's CO2 emissions and power requirements. Said Rob Potts, President and COO of Blue Earth, Inc., "As a developer and owner of energy efficient and renewable energy solutions for commercial and industrial facilities, Blue Earth is committed to cogeneration as an environmentally thoughtful and cost-effective technology. The Pilgrim's Pride CHP energy plant will be both an example of Pilgrim's Pride commitment to energy efficiency, and a showcase facility for other potential Blue Earth customers."

With combined heat and power (CHP) solutions, electricity is generated and the heat from the generator is captured and utilized for useful purposes, lowering energy costs, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and improving energy efficiency. Stellar Energy manufactured the modular CHP plant in its Jacksonville, Florida fabrication facility which also improves project efficiency and quality control. The unit was pre-tested prior to it being shipped to the Sumter, South Carolina project site.
