Jan. 02 /CSRwire/ - New Energy Corporation (OTCBB:NECO), an alternative-renewable energy/thermal generator systems provider -- today announced that it has contracted with Teixeira Farms Inc., of Santa Maria, Calif., to provide the company with High Concentrate Photovoltaic (HCPV) Solar Energy for a period of 10 years. The contract includes four 1-megawatt HPCV generators, to be delivered by the third quarter of 2002.
McDonald further commented: "New Energy has recently refocused its business objective to the selling of long-term energy contracts, in addition to the selling of its HCPV solar generators. Because of state and federally funded programs that provide rebates and tax credits for renewable energy systems, we are now able to provide our energy customers with the use of our generators at no expense to them. This makes the switch from fossil fuel-derived energy to HPCV solar energy virtually seamless for the end user."
Norm Teixeira, president of Teixeira Farms Inc., commented: "By signing this contract with New Energy Corporation, we will see an immediate reduction of our energy expenditures by 20%, which is unheard of in this time of energy scarcity. Because the generators are provided to us free of cost, there is no downside to the transition from fossil fuel-derived energy to solar power. Also, we are now able to meet our energy needs without negatively impacting the environment."
