XZERES Corp Acquires CalcoGreen

XZERES Corp (OTC: XPWR) Acquires CalcoGreen LLC and Expands Team with Top Industry Talent

September  4, 2013 (Waitsfield, VT):  CalcoGreen LLC, headquartered in Waitsfield, VT is proud to announce it has been acquired by XZERES Corporation, Wilsonville, OR (OTC: XPWR) a clean energy technology manufacturer specializing in power management, power efficiency, residential and commercial wind turbine systems.

CalcoGreen, LLC was founded by renewable energy industry veteran Chris Lamonia in the winter of 2010.  CalcoGreen’s focus in financing energy efficiency and renewable energy projects along with its extensive  relationships with energy efficiency and renewable energy integrators positions XZERES Corporation for immediate  market exposure in local and regional markets across the US and Canada.  “XZERES is pleased to incorporate CalcoGreen and Chris into the organization, which adds strong sales, business development, and financing expertise to our existing efforts” said Frank Greco, CEO of XZERES Corp.

With this acquisition, Lamonia has accepted a full time position as the Vice President of North American Business Development and Special Projects for both the wind and power efficiency product lines.  XZERES Corporation recently acquired the assets of Southwest Windpower, manufacturer of the globally recognized Skystream wind turbine (2.4kW).  “This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for me not only because the Skystream has been deployed into over 8,000 different applications, which represents greater market share than any other 2.4 kW wind turbine in the history of small wind globally, but the power factor correction equipment that XZERES currently offers holds endless possibilities in the energy efficiency and demand reduction market” said Chris Lamonia, president and Founder of CalcoGreen.  “The new line of power efficiency equipment XZERES is now manufacturing brings diversification to XZERES which limits its risk in the ever changing energy efficiency and renewable energy markets.”

XZERES understands the need to bring innovative new financing options to power efficiency and wind transactions.  CalcoGreen’s finance contacts and industry knowledge brings additional support to this focus for the company.   “CalcoGreen provides an excellent fit at the right time as XZERES moves toward further expanding its efforts to provide unique funding solutions and partnerships with customers around the world” said XZERES CFO, Steve Shum.

This acquisition will also bring nationwide regional office locations with its office in Waitsfield VT, a new office in Stowe, VT and current headquarters in Wilsonville, OR.

    I installed a 442SR from Xzeres 4 years ago. The wind generator came with a 5 year warranty. Living in a remote area of Colorado, it was/is important to me to have a reliable/dependable source of alternative energy. We chose the 442 in the belief that the product was reliable and that the Company, Xzeres, would stand behind the 442. Both of our beliefs were gravely misplaced. The four years since installation have been an absolute nightmare. The last time our 442 worked was early spring of 2014. We finally got a technician from Xzeres to come out to the field in October, 2014. He determined that internal parts in the generator needed to be replaced and that he would be “back in two weeks” to repair. He finally came out the week of May 11, 2015, a full 7 months later. After reviewing the installation, he determined that he did not have the right parts and would be “back in 2 weeks.” Guess what, 2 weeks have come and gone and he still hasn’t come out. Now he is saying another technician will come but can’t give us a date.

    Please understand, we have documented a four year history of dealings with Xzeres. My installation contractor, who has been a life-saver, estimates that during the last 4 years, the generator has only been operational for 12 of the last 48 months. I personally believe it is somewhat less than that. I want to warn others against dealing with Xzeres. I would hate for others to spend as much as I have and receive a defective product and deal with an unprofessional, uncooperative company.
