With 2011 just days away, GreenHouse Holdings, Inc., a leading provider of energy efficiency solutions and sustainable infrastructure products, encourages and assists companies of all sizes with efforts to identify and adopt strategies that fully incorporate the various incentive programs offered through their local utilities. These programs provide significant monetary incentives for acting on projects that improve energy efficiency and pays consumers for participating in periodic consumption reductions (Demand Response or DR) -- increasing a business' bottom line for the coming year.
The question most frequently asked of GRHU by its clients is how to reduce (utility-influenced) operational costs by managing consumption. In an effort to be more sustainable or green, GRHU suggests companies adapt the following strategies and tactics to their business plan for 2011:
- When starting a consumption-related utility incentive program, partner with only highly reputable companies who know all of the facts; bad choices can actually escalate costs
- Use the latest in lighting technology and embrace proper lighting techniques for businesses
- Automation -- the backbone of the energy efficiency process worldwide. Install an Automated Demand Response program (ADR) for energy efficiency and load curtailment
- Renewable Fuels (wind, solar, etc.) -- Part of the equation, not the solution
Based in San Diego, California, GreenHouse Holdings is a sustainable solutions integrator with a variety of services that address needs ranging from alternative/renewable energy and energy conservation to cost effective, rapidly deployable infrastructure and sustainable construction. GreenHouse Holdings provides solutions for single households, corporations, communities, regions, and the federal government that mitigate disposal costs and convert waste streams into valuable resources.

Majestic Gold Corp. recently reported the results of an updated resource estimate on its Song Jiagou Mine.
The most significant changes from the previous estimate are:
- Increase in Indicated tonnes by 35.34% to 33,739,586 tonnes
- Increase in Indicated contained gold by 24.09% to 1,244,211 ounces
- Increase in Inferred tonnes by 37.96% to 38,812,054 tonnes
- Increase in Inferred contained gold by 7.48% to 1,830,576 ounces
The increase in the size of the resource from 53 to 72.5 million tonnes will very significantly reduce the strip ratios to be used as Majestic continues its engineering studies on the Song Jiagou mine. Wardrop will move forward now to re-evaluate a production pit design.
Majestic continues to work with Wardrop and its sister company, Tetra Tech (Beijing) Consultancy Company Limited, (both subsidiaries of Terta Tech Inc.) to complete a Preliminary Economic Assessment, concurrent with the required Chinese Geological and Engineering studies required to apply for increased production levels at Song Jiagou. The results of these studies will ultimately culminate in a Pre-feasibility report.
