PowerSecure's IDG(R) Power Systems Protect East Coast Facilities from Power Losses During Hurricane Irene, Utility Crews Assist with Power Restoration Efforts

PowerSecure International, Inc. - 08.29.2011

PowerSecure International, Inc. (Nasdaq: POWR) today reported its Interactive Distributed Generation(R) (IDG(R)) standby power systems operated to support utilities and their commercial and industrial customers during over 130 power outage events caused by Hurricane Irene. PowerSecure's IDG monitoring team has been in "storm mode" for over a week, continuously monitoring customer's East Coast facilities "24 x 7" to protect their operations from costly interruptions and spoilage. PowerSecure's IDG systems supported, and continue to support, a wide range of critical facilities, including hospitals, industrial sites, military installations, commercial locations, and schools - some of which were utilized as public shelters during the hurricane.

PowerSecure also reported that its Utility Services team has deployed crews to hurricane-ravaged areas along the East Coast to assist utilities with power restoration efforts. PowerSecure's team is supporting utilities' efforts to restore power as quickly as possible - and continues to actively deploy resources to assist utilities with their most critical needs. Given the widespread damage, it is anticipated PowerSecure's crews could be deployed for these emergency services well into next week.

Sidney Hinton, CEO of PowerSecure, said, "Our IDG and Utility Services teams have been and continue to be in full storm mode supporting utilities and their commercial and industrial customers before, during, and after Hurricane Irene. We are blessed to be able to serve in these times of need, and our thoughts and prayers go out to those impacted by the devastating storms and for the safety of emergency teams assisting in the aftermath. Throughout the hurricane season, we will continue to closely monitor any developing storms, ensuring that our IDG systems are standing by to protect our customers' facilities in the event of a power loss, and deploying our Utility Services teams to assist utilities with power restoration efforts as quickly and safely as possible."
