TUSTIN, CA, Jun 10, 2014 (Marketwired via COMTEX) — Premier Holding Corporation (OTCQB: PRHL) today announces the following additional details regarding its 80% owned subsidiary The Power Company, USA, LLC (TPC) at www.ThePowerCompany.com, and to provide more clarity from its announcement last Wednesday:
-- TPC achieved record sales to commercials clients. On the commercial side, industry sales and growth are measured by the number of Kilowatt hours. Therefore, in last Wednesday's press release it was announced that The Power Company sold a new company record 50 million Kilowatt hours in electricity to commercial clients that included a number of world renowned company accounts. TPC has over 1,500 commercial accounts. Analysts commonly measure valuation of a Company's commercial accounts 5 to 10 times a residential account. -- The Power Company (TPC) contracted about 3,000 new households in May bringing the total number of residential contracts as of the end of May to about 45,000 accounts; the highest number in its history. TPC comfortably projects over 70,000 household accounts by the end of calendar 2014. Industry comparables and analysts have shown that companies have sold for a valuation based on $800 to $1,200 per residential contract. -- TPC services customers as a reseller of utilities in nearly all of the states that are deregulated. States that currently have a deregulated utility market include Illinois, New York, Connecticut, Texas, Delaware, Massachusetts, Maryland, New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Rhode Island. On the residential side, TPC draws from a total of about 40 different power suppliers to help provide its customers low rates. -- On the commercial side, TPC enlisted the services of eight different power suppliers in the latest month which further demonstrates the flexibility and strength of its supplier relationships resulting in providing its clients with the best rates possible. In addition, TPC provided lower cost natural gas for a national chain of rehabilitation clinics which shows how the Company is a complete answer for all energy savings. It also was successful in landing new accounts in May to power the common areas for a group of marquee NYC high rises. -- TPC remains on the cutting edge of innovation in this industry in part to its sophisticated sales portal NEST (National Energy Sales Transactor) which enables rapid, efficient and secure sales transactions of deregulated power. This portal enables sales staff, whether from a computer terminal, a smart phone, or any web browser to access pertinent information on a particular prospect, including their energy profile, and quickly access the energy options available to them. Then after selecting the best power provider, sales agents can process the paperwork online in real-time which enables client acquisition in minutes. -- Premier Holding Corp's 100% owned subsidiary Energy Efficiency Experts (E3) and TPC sales teams have begun to contact TPC's commercial accounts to offer its proprietary lighting solutions and other energy efficiency strategies to further lower utility bills. E3's E-Series Controllers reduce energy consumption of existing lighting systems by up to 36%, extends lamp life up to 40% and ballast life up to 200% reducing stress on landfills, and is 95% recyclable by weight. This lighting solution is considered an upgrade, not a retrofit. -- Premier Holding still plans to become a power provider once it gains approval from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) anticipated later this year. As a supplier, it would book the customers entire energy supply bill as revenue (estimated to be 8 to 12 times higher than the commission). In addition to the current revenue to TPC, as the supplier it would also gain the difference between the wholesale and retail cost of energy so net profit would be expected to grow 2 to 3 times what is currently earned.
PRHL’s President and CEO Randall Letcavage stated, “Management at Premier Holding Corp. is focused intently on successfully managing its growth and improving shareholder value. We welcome shareholders, interested investors, and industry analysts to contact us if they have any questions.” He added, “We expect to achieve several milestone developments over the near-term that will truly show how far we have come over the past year and where we are headed.”
