GreenHouse Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB:GRHU), a leading provider of energy efficiency solutions and sustainable infrastructure products, announced that it has been engaged to utilize Southern California Edison's (SCE) Automated Demand Response (Auto-DR) program in Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation's Long Beach, CA facility. GreenHouse is a qualified service provider of SCE's Auto-DR program, providing site assessment, feasibility studies, project development, engineering, and installation of enabling technologies and complete processing of all incentives.
The Auto-DR program offers significant financial incentives and technical support to SCE customers with automated load control systems that participate in demand response events. Auto-DR uses control systems to automatically achieve specified energy demand reductions (kW and duration) during periods of peak energy consumption. In utilizing the Auto-DR system, Gulfstream will reduce electric consumption during costly peak energy periods when the demand is highest. Additionally, the system provides Gulfstream the ability to reduce operating costs by curtailing the use and purchase of electricity. Gulfstream will then receive financial incentives from SCE.

American Video Teleconferencing Corp. (Pink Sheets:AVOT) is pleased to announce that it has signed an option agreement to acquire two claim blocks in townships of Mekinac and Lajuene, Province of Quebec. These claim blocks are approximately 3600 acres in total and are located 120 miles east of Montreal P.Q. and 50 miles north of Three Rivers P.Q. They are accessible year round with infrastructure in the immediate vicinity. The claims adjoin a property that had one of the highest readings of Rare Earths in North America.
Sampling in the 1950s gave readings of 48% combined Cerium, Lanthanum, Neoymium and Yttrium. That property has remained dormant for over 50 years but the new owners plan an extensive exploration program this fall. American Video, after a lengthy search and after careful due diligence, believes this is going to be one of the most active areas for Rare Earths exploration and our holdings are in the same geological setting as the 48% Rare Earths showing.
Rare earth elements have become irreplaceable in clean tech such as hybrid and electric car motors, high-efficiency light bulbs, solar panels and wind turbines. They also play a key role in defense technologies such as cruise missiles, radar and sonar and precision-guided weapons. Rare Earths are in huge demand especially in the United States as China is closing off its exports of these strategic metals to less than 5% of its production. American Video will aggressively continue to search world wide for opportunities in Precious, Base and Rare Earths metal projects.
ConAgra Foods, Inc., (NYSE:CAG) one of North America’s leading packaged food companies, reported results for the fiscal 2011 second quarter ended November 28, 2010. Diluted EPS from continuing operations was $0.45 as reported and on a comparable basis. For the same period a year ago, diluted EPS from continuing operations as reported was $0.53, which included $0.02 of net benefit from items impacting comparability.
The company expects fiscal 2011 full-year diluted EPS, adjusted for items impacting comparability, to show a low-single-digit rate of growth over the comparable $1.74 earned in fiscal 2010. This outlook reflects weaker-than-planned first-half EPS and the negative earnings impact related to the early payment of notes receivable. The company’s expectations for improved operating results in the second half of the fiscal year are based on pricing actions under way, strong cost savings, lower SG&A, accelerating contribution from innovation and recently acquired businesses, as well as the benefit of a good-quality potato crop already being processed at Lamb Weston. The company expects year-over-year EPS improvement in the fiscal 2011 third and fourth quarters, with EPS amounts being higher in the fourth quarter than in the third quarter largely due to the timing of price increases. The company expects operating cash flow to be approximately $1.2 billion for the fiscal year.
