ROCHESTER, N.Y., May 7, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via PRWEB - Arista Power, Inc. ("Arista Power" or the "Company") (OTCBB: ASPW) has received an order for a Power on Demand system ("PoD") from City Lights at Queens Landing, Inc. ("City Lights") pursuant to which City Lights has agreed to purchase a Power on Demand system from Arista Power for installation and use at City Lights' 43-story, 525-unit cooperative building located in Long Island City, New York (the "City Lights Building").

The City Lights Building is managed by Rose Associates, Inc., a leading New York-based full-service real estate development and management firm.

Separately, City Lights intends to purchase and install a combined heating and power ("CHP") co-generation system at the City Lights Building.

Arista Power's Power on Demand system utilizes inputs from multiple energy sources including solar, wind, fuel cells, generators, and the grid, in conjunction with a custom-designed battery storage system and a proprietary smart monitoring technology that releases energy at optimal times to reduce electricity costs – particularly demand charges – for large energy users. The PoD system that will be installed at the City Lights Building will consist of a micro-grid that will include the integration of the newly installed solar PV, the newly installed CHP co-generation system, energy storage and power distribution. The total value of the PoD and CHP project is $1.275 million.

The PoD system sold to City Lights represents Arista Power's first sale of a PoD system to be installed in the New York City area. Arista Power expects this PoD system to be installed by the third quarter of 2013.

"This sale to City Lights represents the first sale of our Power on Demand system into the New York City market," said Mark Matthews, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Arista Power. "With New York City's high electricity and demand rates, we believe that there are literally thousands of buildings in the New York City area that are candidates for a Power on Demand system. We are in active negotiations with other real estate management companies, and expect to close additional sales in the New York City area."

Mr. Matthews continued "This sale of a Power on Demand system comes at a great time for Arista Power. I will be speaking at an AGRION event on Thursday, May 9, 2013, and I plan on discussing Power on Demand's applications in the New York City market."

Mr. Matthews is participating as a speaker at Energy Storage Economics 2.0 for New York City and Beyond, an AGRION event which will take place Thursday, May 9, 2013 at 9:30 a.m. at 10 Rockefeller Plaza, New York.
