Florida Coach Transit Companies Reducing Regens – ECOFuelMax

Florida Transportation Department’s have found an answer to dealing with the negative issues with Diesel Regeneration Cycles and Diesel Particulate Filters.

Boca Raton, FL, November 28, 2016 – Coach Buses and Trucks that do a lot of stop and go driving all day long experience what is known as Diesel Regeneration Cycles or REGEN’s. Regen Cycles are activated by a motors computer (ECM) to clean its Diesel Particulate Filter that traps un-burnt fuel or soot.

Diesel Particulate Filters (DPF) since 2007 has been installed on all diesel engines sold and operating in the United States. A Diesel Regeneration Cycle is a function initiated by a vehicles computer (ECM) to trap un-burnt fuel in a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF). The ECO works by increasing the Reid Vapor Pressure (RVP) in Fuel causing it to burn more volatile and cleaner. Cleaner burning fuel reduces the amount un-burnt fuel so less REGEN Cycles are needed. On average Diesel Regeneration Cycles waste 4 to 10 gallons of fuel.

When a DPF gets full of the soot it runs with reduce performance and requires maintenance, if maintenance is not performed a diesel engine will stop running.

The ECOFUELMAX is a simple low cost ($390) easy to install in-line fuel enhancer, No Chemicals or Maintenance is required; its life is 20+ years. Due to the increased efficiency and reduced maintenance and downtime Transit Companies have experienced an ROI of less than 20 days and $3,000- $5,000+ in projected annual savings. Keep your buses on the road, not in the shop!

ECO Fuel Systems, LLC and its principals have been actively working to reduce Hydrocarbon Pollution since 1999. Reduce maintenance expenses and downtime while reducing pollution 40% to over 70% that is released into the atmosphere, a Win – Win solution. For more information call or email us for more details.

The Rose receives 2016 Jack Kemp Excellence in Affordable and Workforce Housing Award from the Urban Land Institute

Minneapolis, Minnesota, 2016-Nov-04 — /REAL TIME PRESS RELEASE/ — PLACE is pleased to announce that The Rose and three sister developments at Portland and Franklin Avenues (South Quarter) in Minneapolis were selected by the Urban Land Institute (ULI) Terwilliger Center for Housing as the winner of the 2016 Jack Kemp Excellence in Affordable and Workforce Housing Award. This annual award honors developments that ensure housing affordability for people with a range of incomes. Representing the completion of South Quarter, The Rose offers 43 market rate apartments and 47 income-restricted affordable apartments in profoundly sustainable buildings that have neither furnaces nor conventional air conditioning equipment.

In 2010, affordable housing developer Aeon, in partnership with Hope Community, selected PLACE by competition to add specialized development consultant capacity as Sustainability Champion for the last phase of South Quarter. Aeon wanted the final buildings to be the best performing buildings of their kind in the country, on an affordable housing budget. A 501(c)(3) charity dedicated to public benefit, PLACE provided disruptive environmental design analysis, assisted in assembling and facilitating a world-class collaborative design and construction team, deepened community engagement, and refined financial modeling in furtherance of creating high-performance, healthy buildings for Aeon’s residents.

Minneapolis has the harshest climate of any large city in America. The biggest challenge for PLACE was to ensure that the team could deliver a building envelope capable of keeping residents cool in a scorching summer with high humidity and a frigid winter with temperatures plunging to minus thirty degrees Fahrenheit. Buildings in the U.S. are built each day to standards that cause them to consume 70% of America’s primary energy, with 52% of that energy going to heating and cooling. The Rose is 75% more energy efficient than local standards require, which also deepens affordability for residents; it represents PLACE’s most cutting edge restorative development work to date.

“This project is on the leading edge of workforce housing development and preservation,” said J. Ronald Terwilliger, chairman of Terwilliger Pappas Multifamily Partners in Atlanta. “It has it all—mixed-income housing, environmental sustainability, long-term affordability, and long-term financing.”

“The efforts of Aeon and Hope Community, with their many public and private sector partners, prove that previously disinvested communities can point the way forward for mixed-income, environmentally sustainable redevelopment in our cities,” said Stockton Williams, executive director of the ULI Terwilliger Center.

Bmark Energy Announces California Direct Access (DA) Program is Poised to Expand in PG&E, SCE and SDG&E

  • California’s Direct Access (DA) Program is Poised to Expand in PG&E, SCE and SDG&E
  • Many Commercial & Industrial DA Companies Currently Save 10-25%

Pismo Beach, CA, June 02, 2015 — /REAL TIME PRESS RELEASE/ — On April 21, 2015, California Senate Bill SB286 passed a Senate Energy, Utilities and Communications Committee (11-0) and indicates the legislature’s desire to support both individual choice (increase the DA CAP) and renewable energy.

This is Great News – and is Electricity Deregulation in Action

Many companies currently participating in the DA program appreciate substantial savings between 10-25% on their generation costs over fully-bundled utility rates, which is why the DA program is so popular and in high demand.

Going forward, we expect the bill to be amended to either phase in the CAP increases or impose some alternative type of participation CAP, and include a renewable energy purchase obligation for new participants.

The Committee Chairman supports the bill and would like to see the bill amended to increase the CAP by 8,000 GWh and would also like to see any new participants be taken from the utility wait list.

** This “Wait List” and Timing are Extremely Important **

To be considered for participation into the DA program, a Six-Month Notice to Transfer to Direct Access needs to be submitted by a company to their utility. With these notices, each utility creates their “Wait List” for any future DA openings that may occur under the CAP for the following year.

“It is extremely important that companies realize that the utility Wait Lists for 2016 are being formed NOW,” says Robert Kramb, president of Bmark Energy, “and the deadline is June 12 for any 2016 DA openings.”

Six-Month Notice to Transfer to Direct Access forms are sent to the utility June 8, 2015 – June 12, 2015. If you miss the June 12, 2015 deadline, any DA opportunity for 2016 is eliminated.

Next Steps to Take:

1- Contact us at Bmark Energy at: 805-773-3762 Ext. 3
2- Email your electric utility invoice to:
3- We will complete the form and return it to you for your signature.
4- We will then submit the form during the utility enrollment period.

Here are links to additional information on Direct Access, regarding FAQs, as well as savings charts and graphs.

1. Set your thermostat at 78 degrees when you’re home, and 82 while you’re away. Make sure the fan switch is on “auto”
2. Use fans to keep cool but remember to turn them off when leaving the room
3. Close blinds and shades to keep heat out
4. Seal windows and doors with weather stripping to avoid air escapes and save even more
5. Grill outside instead of using the oven or stove to help keep your kitchen cool
6. Clean or replace your air filter regularly so your air conditioner runs efficiently
