MICHAEL CLARK, ENCORP SENIOR VP, JOINS BOARD FOR NORTHERN COLORADO CLEAN ENERGY CLUSTER

FORT COLLINS, COLO. - Aug. 21, 2009 - Michael Clark, senior vice president of distributed-energy company Encorp, LLC in Fort Collins, has joined the Northern Colorado Clean Energy Cluster board of directors.

The Clean Energy Cluster is a nonprofit economic-development organization working to put Northern Colorado on the map as the "go-to" region for clean-energy initiatives. The Cluster works to attract clean-energy companies to the region, assist existing businesses as they expand into the clean-energy arena and help start-ups thrive in the region. One of the Cluster's key initiatives is Fort ZED, which is transforming downtown Fort Collins and the Colorado State University campus into a zero-energy district, which will be the world's largest.

As Encorp's senior vice president, Clark leads a company whose solutions enable hospitals, manufacturers, office buildings, schools and other sites to reduce energy costs by generating their own electrical power using various fuel sources, including renewables. Microgrid Secure™ is typically connected to the utility grid.

Encorp's Generator Power Control - or "Gold Box™" -- is the heart of many on-site power systems. The Gold Box™, which is the world's first truly integrated generator controller, allows operators to remotely control and communicate with various engines, generators and the local utility.

Encorp digital-paralleling switchgear and Microgrid Secure™ software also are key components of on-site power systems. They allow operators to remotely dispatch, aggregate and control power generators and to interconnect on-site power plants with the utility or operate it solely as back-up power.

"Mike has more than 20-years of experience in the energy industry, which is invaluable to us as a board member because of his knowledge and industry contacts," said Judy Dorsey, executive director of the Cluster. "He is a seasoned energy-industry executive truly invested in promoting Northern Colorado as a clean-energy leader."
