Power3 Medical Products, Inc. (OTC:PWRM)
Rozetta-Cell Life Sciences, Inc. is a medical biotechnology company that focuses on the delivery and imaging of stem cells during therapy. PWRM plans to effect the acquisition of Rozetta-Cell by merging Rozetta-Cell with and into PWRM, with PWRM remaining as the surviving company. The acquisition of Rozetta-Cell is expected to be completed in February 2011.
"We are very excited to be finally ridding ourselves of litigation that has plagued us for several years now," stated Ira L. Goldknopf, President and Chief Scientific Officer of PWRM. "We have big plans for the future beginning with our upcoming acquisition of Rozetta-Cell and are about to enter a long and substantial growth phase marked by advances in our science and intellectual property. Given the imminent nature of many of these transactions and breakthroughs, we have decided, in consultation with the financiers of Rozetta-Cell, that the best course of action for Power3 is to settle many of these lawsuits so that we can focus our attention exclusively on the acquisition of Rozetta-Cell and the development of our combined businesses after the merger."

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.
"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."
Many experts in the energy field agree that small changes often have the largest impact. For example, commercial buildings can easily raise (or lower during the winter) the set points on HVAC systems by a few degrees (+/-) and have a significant financial impact over their entire portfolio. Many well-known companies such as Wal-Mart and Target are reaping noteworthy benefits from simple measures such as this. GRHU also advises businesses to keep conditioned air inside the spaces meant to be conditioned. For example, a retailer may operate with their doors wide open on a hot summer day, allowing cool air to escape the space intended to be cooled off. That's obviously a wasteful practice of significant proportions. Businesses should spend its cost savings on growing the business, not inflating their utility bills.
GRHU offers consulting services wherein a business can outsource all of the "heavy lifting" and planning that is required to be as energy efficient an operation as possible. Ideally, companies will employ an "Energy Czar" and tie their compensation to the financial benefits gained from implementing feasible sustainability practices. GRHU can help a business establish this position from candidate selection and training to delivering ready-to-go Strategic Energy Plans for a facility or portfolio. Either way, for businesses both large and small, companies like GRHU can support that effort.
"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."
GreenHouse Holdings, Inc. is a San Diego, California based integrator of some of the world's most innovative environmental, public safety, infrastructure technologies.
