Alter NRG Corp. Announces Commercial Geoexchange Financing Program
May 10, 2011
Calgary, AB – May 10, 2011 – (TSX: NRG; OTCQX: ANRGF) Alter NRG Corp. (“Alter NRG” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce a partnership with a leading Canadian chartered bank under which qualified commercial, industrial and government customers will be eligible to finance their purchase of CleanEnergy’s geoexchange systems. The financing will be structured such that qualified customers would incur little or no upfront cost, and it may be optimized to meet a customer’s budgetary or investment objectives. The lease costs are then offset by the energy savings of the geoexchange system which reduces the use of fossil fuels by up to 80%.
Danny Hay, CFO of Alter NRG believes that “CleanEnergy (which is our wholly owned subsidiary offering commercial geoexchange solutions) has quickly built its reputation as the market leader for larger buildings including recreational complexes, schools, hospitals condominiums and other projects it has executed upon in the last 12 months. Introducing this financing program through a leading chartered bank provides our commercial and government customers the ability to achieve a lower carbon footprint and increased comfort from the geoexchange system under their existing budgets.”
Financial structure and terms will vary according to customer credit, market conditions and other considerations and are subject to final approval by the lender. The term of the financing will be between seven and ten years and will be at competitive bank rates, subject to the discretion of the lender. The Company is currently finalizing an additional arrangement with a leading US lender which will provide further financial flexibility for our geoexchange customers.
Clean Energy Capital Securities acted as financial advisor to Alter NRG in the development of the financing program.
