HENDERSON, NV–(Marketwired – August 28, 2014) – Blue Earth, Inc. (OTCQB: BBLU) (Company) a renewable/alternative energy and energy efficiency services company, announced today that it has signed an energy purchase agreement and land lease agreement with JBS Food Canada Inc. (JBS), a wholly owned subsidiary of JBS USA Holdings, Inc., in Brooks, Alberta, Canada, to design, build, finance, own and operate a $29 million (CAD$29,000,000) co-generation power facility.

Blue Earth’s Alberta, Canada co-generation power facility will supply electricity for JBS’s protein processing plant as well as thermal energy from the waste heat of the turbine. Excess power generated by the co-generation power facility will be sold to the Alberta Power Pool. To achieve the parties’ sustainability objectives, JBS and Blue Earth will incorporate several energy-saving solutions. The green technologies implemented will reduce JBS’s (Alberta) carbon footprint by an estimated 30 percent annually.

Cameron Bruett, Chief Sustainability Officer of JBS USA Holdings, Inc., said, ” JBS is pleased to partner with Blue Earth in implementing long-term energy solutions that will reduce costs and minimize our carbon footprint through the use of alternative, renewable energy and energy efficient solutions. The partnership includes the construction of a new co-generation power plant at our beef processing facility in Alberta, Brooks, Canada. Working with Blue Earth, JBS will improve the energy efficiency of many of our North American processing facilities over the next few years, improving the long-term sustainability of our organization, minimizing our environmental impact and continuing our role as a valued and responsible member of the communities in which we operate.”

Owning and operating the co-generation power facility is a significant step forward as Blue Earth becomes an independent energy producer with long-term recurring revenues from energy sales. The co-generation power facility will be financed through a combination of equity, senior debt and mezzanine debt as discussed in the Company’s public filings.

Dr. Johnny Thomas, CEO of Blue Earth Inc., said, “Blue Earth is excited to work with JBS on the Alberta co-generation project and potentially other co-generation power plants as well. We believe the immediate and long term cost savings to JBS, with no capital expenditures and the long term recurring revenue produced for the Company, will bring tremendous value to the shareholders of both companies. We anticipate the Alberta co-generation facility to commence operations in 1H of 2015.
