SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--EGPI Firecreek, Inc. (OTCBB: EFIR) is pleased to announce they have finalized and completed the acquisition of St. Louis, MO. based Arctic Solar Engineering, LLC. (ASE).
We look forward to keeping our shareholders abreast of relevant news that will be forthcoming within the next several weeks.
Arctic Solar Engineering, LLC, is an integrator of Solar Thermal Energy technology. Solar Thermal Energy (STE) is the most efficient and economical method of capturing and using renewable thermal energy created by the sun every day of the year. The solar collectors that are used capture all visible and non-visible wave lengths of sun light and covert the light into energy at a 90% efficiency. Energy created by ASEs STE Systems store that energy in water (or other similarly inexpensive storage mediums) and then use that energy in its direct form to heat water, heat space and cool spaces. According to the US Department of Energy, this accounts for 70% of all energy used in commercial and residential structures in the United States.
ASEs Solar Thermal Energy Systems have little to no local competitors and competition is very limited on a national basis. Currently, the market demand for renewable energy is growing at a dramatic rate, while ASEs payback is typically faster from the energy produced by their system. The ASE Solar Thermal Energy System typically saves customers on a scale of 10:1 or greater.
Dennis Alexander, EGPI Firecreek CEO, stated, We are extremely happy to be adding Arctic Solar to our newly established alternative energy division. With current projects in hand and significant pending projects currently in our pipeline, we are confident that our expertise and abilities combined with Arctics technologies, will enable us to establish a strong presence in the industry within a very short period of time. He also stated, We look forward to keeping our shareholders abreast of relevant news that will be forthcoming within the next several weeks.
Detailed information in regards to the acquisition of Arctic Solar will be made available in the Companys 8-K, 10-Q and 10-K filings with the SEC.
