Xtreme Energy Makeover Debuts in Southern California

Project Promises Huge Savings to Lucky Homeowners

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - August 27, 2007) - San Diego is abuzz with talk of the latest and most advanced home energy retrofit project to hit the scene. Xtreme Energy Makeover is made possible through a partnership between project management firm Richard Heath & Associates (RHA) and SDG&E, a Sempra Energy utility. Homeowners Ken and Marie Huff in San Diego, California were selected to receive this groundbreaking renovation.

Unlike many new construction projects, Xtreme Energy Makeover takes an existing home and transforms it into a modern example of extreme energy efficiency.

"We are thrilled to be the first Xtreme Energy Makeover recipients," said Ken Huff. "We can't wait to watch our family home change before our eyes and to get our first bill after the project is completed."

"The San Diego market is perfect to showcase this exciting project," said Tom Barrett, vice president at RHA. "With so many homes in Southern California built during an era that did not consider energy efficiency a key factor, today's consumer needs the best energy renovation options and Xtreme Energy Makeover delivers."

The Xtreme Energy Makeover Project is a demonstration project designed to develop and provide cost-effective energy saving renovation information to contractors, builders, and homeowners seeking to reduce energy usage in older, single-family homes built before the State of California's energy code (Title 24) took effect. The project will demonstrate energy saving techniques and energy efficient equipment to educate ratepayers in San Diego Gas & Electric Company's service territory, thereby creating energy reductions through cost-effective energy renovations, targeting energy consuming appliances, lighting, heating, air conditioning, and structural components.
