MT. VERNON, New York, January 19, 2005- Electric Transportation Solutions, LLC (ETS) and the Northeast Sustainable Energy Association (NESEA) announce today that they have formed a strategic alliance to promote the increased use of renewable energy for transportation. ETS announced on October 15, 2004, that their virtual department store of electric vehicles will market EVs and ultimately supply them with power from the wind and sun.

ETS offers consulting services on renewable power toward its goal of eventually making all power renewable. With 60 years' of combined experience in the field, its experts provide technological solutions for powering vehicles from wind and solar sources, as well as methods to return vehicle power to the electric grid.

"This strategic alliance makes sense," ETS President and Managing Member Seth Leitman said. "ETS is committed to a pollution and oil free vehicle. NESEA is committed to promoting zero emission vehicles and renewable energy. To bring the two together was the next logical step. This alliance will work to improve our environment and the energy choices we make as a society. With what is happening in the world today, reducing our reliance on imported oil for transportation will be a great step toward energy independence and national security."

"We are thrilled that ETS is not only offering electric vehicles that improve urban air quality, but that they are also making the point that to be truly zero emission the electricity that powers them must be generated by clean renewable technologies such as wind and solar," said NESEA Executive Director, Nancy Hazard. "Electric vehicles recharged by renewable energy offer incredible national security, economic and global climate advantages."

The Northeast Sustainable Energy Association (NESEA) is the nation's leading regional education and advocacy association that promotes renewable energy and energy efficiency for everyday use.

For more than thirty years, NESEA has facilitated and enhanced a network of professionals, practitioners, and other citizens in pursuit of responsible energy use. NESEA is a chapter of the American Solar Energy Society.
