GreenHouse Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB:GRHU)

GreenHouse Holdings, Inc. 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.

"It's going to be a very exciting year for economically sustainable energy and renewable fuels," commented John Galt, Executive Chairman and founder of GRHU. "Rather than just being a growth year for renewable energy companies, we see 2011 as being the year of the Energy Efficiency Company; we want businesses to know that even small efforts to be sustainable through stewardship, can produce a persistent ROI over the longer term."

"When companies have an Automated Demand Response system in place, and participate in load-shed events, they are doing their part to ensure that the region's electric grid remains as stable as possible during peak demand periods," commented Galt. "In California, DR programs enable utility customers to shed load based on either commodity pricing signals or urgent reliability needs. Again, in California, auto-DR takes demand response one giant step further; ADR participants often times receive costly automation and/or SCADA systems that not only perform the load-shed measures associated with a curtailment event, these systems are fully capable of providing ongoing energy efficiency benefits and detailed consumption."

"It doesn't have to be an overnight leap into technology; it's about thinking smarter about the resources we have and figuring out what works best for your business," adds Galt. "It's not going to be sustainable if it isn't feasible or it's overly burdensome on the business."

GRHU, through its subsidiary, R Squared Contracting, Inc., provides energy efficiency products and technologies to the residential, commercial, and industrial building markets.
