Southern States Power Co. Generators Installed And Ready For Backup Standby Power Project

ONTARIO, Calif -- Southern States Power Company, Inc. announced Saturday that the three 2-megawatt generators that are capable of delivering a total of 6 megawatts of biofueled standby backup electrical power to the University of California Riverside are in place, and have successfully completed start-up and testing procedures. The testing of these units has proven their capability to provide power for the University of California, Riverside, and their ability to feed energy to the Riverside power grid. Control of the project has been transferred to Riverside Public Utilities, who will operate the site.

The generators were installed by the firm of Henkels and McCoy, a nationwide electrical contractor, in conjunction with Southern States Power Company. Start-up and testing procedures were completed by Cummins/Onan factory authorized personnel. Cummins technicians were flown to the site to program the computerized utility paralleling system, one of only six in the world that utilize this advanced technology.

``Southern States Power Company is please to help usher a new era in power generation integrating the use of alternative, renewable, clean-burning fuels,'' commented Harrison A. McCoy III, executive vice president of SSPC. ``Approximately 5,000 gallons of the company's OXyG 100% Biodiesel is on hand to fuel this project, and Southern States Power Company's own tanker truck is on 24-hour standby for delivery of additional fuel as needed.''

Southern States Power is poised to capture a significant portion of the rapidly expanding biodiesel market through an aggressive marketing plan as well as contacts in government, business and industry. An alliance with soybean farmers in Iowa will supply the company with as much as 270 million gallons of feedstock for use in production of its OXyG Biodiesel. Tightening clean air standards and growing fossil fuel costs are forcing private commercial fleets to look toward alternative fuel products.

SSPC recently announced that through its distributor, General Petroleum, it is regularly providing fuel to the city of Claremont, Calif., in addition to previously announced clients in Arizona.
