Jun. 11 /CSRwire/ - KALAMAZOO, MI - June 12, 2007- The National Adopt-A-Watt(TM) Program is pleased to announce the Kalamazoo/Battle Creek International Airport Aeronautics Board approval of it's clean energy and alternative fuel funding program.

"Everyone today understands the importance of exploring energy alternatives," stated AZO Airport Director, Clifton Moshoginis "We believe the National Adopt-A-Watt(TM) Program can facilitate our transition to these new alternatives and simultaneously reduce the airport's operating costs... a real plus financially for the Airport".

"Director Moshoginis and the Aeronautics Board are to be commended for their foresight and vision", stated Thomas A. Wither, founder and principal of the National Adopt-A-Watt(TM) Program "Their decision will have a far reaching positive impact on travelers as well as the community and visibly demonstrate the airports commitment to clean air and protecting the environment".

Sponsoring opportunities are now available at AZO. "NAAWP sponsorship offers a high-profile opportunity to show support for clean energy and reducing America's dependence on foreign oil...to over one million yearly airport visitors," Wither says. He further states, "Sponsorship puts a spotlight on corporate citizenship programs and demonstrably reinforces organizations de-carbonization campaigns...action speaks louder then words".

About NAAWP-- Modeled after the successful Adopt-a-Highway acknowledgment program, the patent pending, NAAWP gives sponsors community recognition for funding clean energy, alternative fuel and energy efficiency projects. The program arranges and coordinates all sponsorship, financing, installation and on-going maintenance for Sponsor-able Photo-Voltaic Displays (SPVDs). A SPVD is a complete (1) kW solar electric system that uniquely generates both clean energy and a new source of revenue that is used to fund other energy saving equipment or alternative fuel infrastructure.

Sponsorship of SPVDs is arranged via a virtual auction process at the National Adopt-A-Watt(TM) Web site, www.adopt-a-watt.com. This permits global participation and matches sponsor needs with locations at rest areas, travel plazas, bridges, tunnels, airports, sports/entertain complexes, schools, hospitals, national/state parks, rail/bus stops, etc.
