    Commentary & Quotes

    Steven Silberstein, Facilities Engineering Energy Procurement Manager,
Lockheed Martin Moorestown Facility
    "Through three successful auctions, we have consistently procured energy
efficiently and effectively. The purchase of energy can be a risky endeavor
when you face a volatile market and traditional energy brokerages. With this
auction, we purchased energy below the two-year low industry price in a time
where energy costs elsewhere are rising. By signing a fixed price contract we
have, in essence, removed all the pricing volatility and now have budget
certainty for the next 36 months."

    Richard Domaleski, CEO and founder of World Energy
    "Our customers consistently yield very real cost savings using the World
Energy Exchange. Establishing an online reverse auction for customers like
Lockheed Martin is not simply a matter of relying on our technology to deliver
the best results. Our market expertise, proven process, and deep supplier base
minimize risk and reduce costs by providing users with liquidity and price
transparency, while supporting Sarbanes-Oxley compliance requirements."
