BluePoint Energy Completes Initial EnviroGen(TM) Powered Cogeneration Facilities for Major Resort and Retail Installations Projects Represent $6.1 Million in Current Quarter Projected Revenues EL DORADO HILLS, Calif.--(Business Wire)-- Chapeau, Inc. d/b/a BluePoint Energy (OTCBB:CPEU) announced today that it is in the final stages of completing the first three turnkey cogeneration installations in support of its previously executed proprietary discount energy purchase agreements. These installations at the prominent Macy's Store in Brooklyn, New York and the newly renovated Westin Kaanapali Ocean Resort Villas on the island of Maui, Hawaii represent to BluePoint approximately $6.1 million in revenue. Powered by BluePoint's environmentally responsible, ultra-clean EnviroGen(R) Energy Modules, these cogeneration installations will be utilized to meet a significant portion of each facility's electrical, heating and cooling demands, while providing simultaneously significant environmental and economic benefits to the facilities. Guy A. Archbold, Chief Executive Officer of BluePoint Energy, commented, "We are very pleased to have completed these initial, high-profile customer sites. We believe these installations will be the first of many to be among the most technologically advanced and environmentally responsible onsite cogeneration facilities while exemplifying BluePoint's unique capabilities in modular power plant design and construction. We consider these to be true showcase installations that will greatly benefit our efforts to capitalize on the vast market opportunities throughout the country as evidenced by both economic incentive programs in connection with distributed generation as well as, in the case of the preponderance of the Hawaiian Islands, the recent favorable ruling by the Hawaiian Public Utilities Commission making standby energy rates optional for consumers who install cogeneration and other forms of distributed generation power systems." Archbold concluded, "While we are most pleased to announce significant revenue growth in this quarter from years of development and hard work while completing unique technological advances in onsite cogeneration, we are even more enthusiastic to acknowledge the many more significant opportunities that we are now pursuing in both cogeneration and demand response as a consequence of our state-of-the-art technologies and subsequent showcase sites. As current bookings for future revenue become more quantifiable and complete, we intend to provide prospective quarterly revenue guidance in the near future."
