ABCO Energy Announces Entry Into Solar Asset Operation & Maintenance Business

ABCO Energy, Inc. (OTCPK: “ABCE”) Tucson, Arizona (April 8, 2021), the Arizona provider of integrated energy solutions, is pleased to announce the addition of the solar asset management business to its portfolio of services and construction business.  ABCO manages and repairs systems for its own customers over the past twelve years and has been seeing a tremendous increase in request from customers who have lost their solar installers from the economic ravages of the COVID 19 Pandemic.

We have received calls from commercial project owners in several Western states that have requested our assistance to revive or maintain their solar assets.  Many owners of multimillion dollar projects are scrambling for managers because of the large numbers of bankruptcies that have plagued the solar construction industry.  Over many years ABCO has been doing the very business that survival has now allowed them to capitalize on with this new market for ABCO.

Solar asset management companies are growing rapidly all over the industry because many solar assets are reaching midlife and starting to need repairs.  Inverters often start failing at ten years and many weather related hazards befall the assets. Wind, hail, lightning and fire have often created a need for intense management and ABCO has been taking on these projects. System removal and replacement for roof repairs and other needs has grown over 400% in the past year for ABCO and large system management and repairs has grown even more.

                                       One of ABCO Energy’s solar asset management projects in Tucson Arizona 

The solar industry will see $16 billion of unplanned repairs over the next five years.  Annual solar plant operations and maintenance (O&M) costs will double from nearly $4.5 billion in 2019 to over $9 billion in 2024 according to new research from Wood Mackenzie, the 100 year old international energy consulting group. “The O & M Companies that manage these assets will reap the benefits of these repair billings and the recurring annual maintenance revenue” says Mr. Shorey, President of ABCO Energy.  ABCO is already growing in this industry segment and the future is bright.

ABCO Energy Announces Completion of Four Border Patrol Contracts

ABCO Energy, Inc. (OTCPK: “ABCE”) Tucson, Arizona (March 22, 2021), the Arizona provider of integrated energy solutions, is pleased to announce the successful sale of a mobile energy efficiency solution for several remote border patrol sites near the Arizona-Mexico border for off grid power. We have now completed one large system for $189,000, one medium site for $29,000 and two small solar energy systems to power entire outpost sites.  The smaller systems provide solar powered air conditioning units for storage sites at a cost of $19,000.

The large system completely powers the remote check point site near Ajo, Arizona and replaces diesel generators which costs nearly $9,000 per month in fuel expense to operate.  A full solar power system operates the site in the daytime and powers the batteries on the site at night. We have also provided a complete diesel generator that only fires up for a backup system.  The savings alone on this site amount to nearly $108,000 per year to the border patrol.

The medium system powers a remote site containing a full camp that will house the US Forest Service remote outpost for fire and game control operations and temporary housing and operations for the Border Patrol Agents in Southern Arizona.  The entire site is solar powered including lights, heat and air conditioning systems. The site contains housing, food preparation and security equipment.

The border patrol officers have stated that they are extremely pleased to rid their camps of the sound and fumes of the diesel engines and the expense for the continual fossil fuel use, which is doubling as this press release goes out.  The Border Patrol has told ABCO Energy that “they are now considering the ABCO Power Systems for all of their locations from California to Texas along 1,500 miles of border security checkpoints” said Klaus Wyatt the ABCO Solar representative handling the Border Patrol account.

This commercial contract cost was $189,000 complete and includes the purchase, delivery and set-up of a hybrid solar power generating system. This system consists of four separate generator units connected in a “Daisy-chain” manner to serve as a single power generating system. Three of the units are solar powered (including a light on one of the units). An additional unit shall be a diesel generator which will be utilized for the charging of batteries during extended periods of inclement weather and for backup power. The picture below is the Ajo checkpoint mobile units in operation.

On the Effective Date, the Company’s trading symbol will change to “ABCED” for a period of 20 business days, after which the “D” will be removed from the Company’s trading symbol, which will revert to the original symbol of “ABCE”.

On the Effective Date, the total number of shares of the Company’s Common Stock held by each stockholder will be converted automatically into the number of whole shares of Common Stock equal to (i) the number of issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock held by such stockholder immediately prior to the Reverse Stock Split, divided by (ii) 170.

ABCO Energy Pays Off Last of the Series C Convertible Preferred

ABCO Energy, Inc (OTC PINK: ABCE) Tucson, Arizona (February 22, 2019) – ABCO Energy has raised funds and retired the last issue of the Series C convertible debt held by Redstart Holdings and was advised that Redstart has completed all of the conversions under their three preferred holdings. ABCO announced on January 31, 2019 that the Company had purchased all of the second issue of the convertible preferred held by Redstart. The proceeds from the issuances of the three Series C preferred stock were used by ABCO for working capital at the start of significant commercial jobs which are now nearly completed. Redstart converted the first of the series and ABCO purchased the last two for more than $206,000.  

Over the last ten trading days, our stock has closed above $0.01 and yesterday the close was over $0.02. We believe that this is the result of the Company’s growth and the retirement of the toxic debt. Also, we have completed the application and related corporate actions to lift the Company off from trading on the PINK Market to trading our common shares on the “Over The Counter Quality Board” (OTCQB). This level of trading will qualify our shares to trade with a much larger number of brokers and traders that do not trade on the PINK market. When it is approved, ABCO Energy, Inc. will be trading on a quality trading board on OTC Markets. ABCO Energy has not traded on the OTCQB for over three years as it has struggled to stabilize its stock price and fund its growth. We are now staging our Company for growth internally and through acquisitions and feel confident the share price will reflect this plan.

“We are very proud of the accomplishments of the ABCO team and our consultants over the last two years and feel confident we will continue to be trading well for our shareholders in the very near future” said
Charles O’Dowd, President, “and we are thankful to our shareholders for all of their assistance in reaching these accomplishments”.

ABCO ENERGY ANNOUNCES SALE OF SOLAR POWER SYSTEM FOR EPISCOPAL CHURCH

ABCO Energy, Inc. (OTC PINK: ABCE) Tucson, Arizona (February 5, 2019), the Arizona provider of integrated energy solutions, is pleased to announce the successful sale of a commercial photovoltaic system at a Tucson Episcopal Church, one of 63 congregations in the Diocese of Arizona. The system is designed to greatly reduce cost of energy and starts a significant milestone in the Diocese’s sustainability plans.

By installing 62,080 DC Watts of solar panels at this community worship center for a grand total of $185,000, the congregation will receive a savings benefit of $877,000 over 25 years. ABCO has completed several church projects for many denominations over the last few years and is proud to be supporting and contributing to their success in the community they serve.

Like all churches in the nation, this Episcopal Church has experienced higher electrical bills than most other commercial accounts because of demand billing by the utilities. Their electric bills spike during high usage on weekends that create demand charges that hold their rates higher than normal for the entire billing cycle. Solar systems will reduce billing and such reductions can help to preserve the capital of the worship centers. Since financing is readily available and is provided through ABCO, we have found that most religious centers should find it beneficial to save on electricity by utilizing solar.

“As a leading energy solutions provider, ABCO is committed to delivering innovative and cost-effective solutions. We go from start to finish with our customers, by providing financing, designing and installing the system, helping to save money on utility bills and providing “green” properties.” said Charles O’Dowd, President of ABCO. “We take extra steps to provide ongoing asset operations and maintenance.”
