SourceOne partners with Hempstead, N.Y. on energy efficiency projects

Boston, April 5, 2011 — Veolia Energy North America, an operator and developer of energy efficient solutions, announced that SourceOne, its energy management and advisory services unit, has been selected by the Town of Hempstead, N.Y., to provide energy efficiency measures.

As part of the contract, SourceOne will provide program management services to assist the town with implementation of an Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant Program from the United States Department of Energy.

SourceOne worked with the Town of Hempstead to secure a $4.6 million grant through the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant Program, created to assist U.S. cities, counties and states to develop, promote, implement and manage energy efficiency and conservation projects and programs.

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 appropriated $3.2 billion for EECBGs to be distributed by the DOE across the country.

SourceOne will support the town with the implementation of several sustainability and conservation initiatives including:

* Energy Conservation Projects (lighting, building management system, etc.)

* Sustainable planning and public outreach

* Light bulb swap program (replace older less efficient bulbs with CFLs)

* Solar photovoltaic arrays

* 100 Kw wind turbine

* Support for hydrogen fueling station

* Support branding green/sustainable technologies for the town

* Greenhouse gas inventory and plan to reduce GHG footprint

In addition, SourceOne will help execute the grant, and will provide technical support, along with support in grant administration, compliance, preparation of RFP, contractor selection, timeline and budget management and DOE protocol.

SourceOne has established a successful track record across the nation, providing a unique mix of energy services that are focused on complex capacity and reliability issues affecting customers. This project will leverage SourceOne's extensive expertise in the economics of power delivery and consumption.
