Cool-n-Save Innovator Wins TechAmerica Green Engineering Award


June 16, 2011 - Huntington Beach, CA

Greenway Design Group, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: GDGI) was named the winner of the Harvey Mudd College Green Engineering Award during the 18th annual TechAmerica Orange County High-Tech Innovation Awards event held on June 9 in Irvine, CA. TechAmerica OC hosts the event to celebrate excellence and achievement among the region's technology sector.

"We congratulate all of the winners and finalists for their innovation over the last year, and look forward to seeing the trend continue," said Bob Brunson, associate director of TechAmerica Orange County. "Greenway Design Group is an important contributor to Orange County and the innovations created here for the country and the world."

Greenway Design Group, based in Huntington Beach, CA, received the honor in recognition for its work on Cool-n-Save energy-saving evaporative pre-cool misting technology designed for commercial and residential central air conditioning systems. Independent studies and results from customer sites have shown that Cool-n-Save can produce energy cost savings as high as 30% with an average savings of about 26% during peak heat seasons. The company has been developing pre-cool misting technology for HVAC systems since 2005.

"We have had many triumphs, but this award is the greatest honor that we have experienced as a company," says Ben Lefrancois, the company's CEO and president. "It helps us overcome outside skepticism that we can do what we claim we do; that Cool-n-Save is effective in saving money by reducing energy consumption."

"This award helps spread the word that Cool-n-Save could be an answer for a country in search of ways of reducing energy consumption and cutting carbon output," says Darius Jakubik, the company's senior vice president. "People will find that Cool-n-Save is also cost-effective and practical; many of our customers earn enough from energy savings to pay back the cost of their investment in less than 12 months."

Co-honorees for the Harvey Mudd College Green Engineering Award receiving certificates of merit include Amonix, developer of concentrated photovoltaic solar energy and solar power plants, and Fisker Automotive, manufacturer of premium plug-in hybrid electric vehicles.
