Riverside, California – February 26, 2003 [SolarAccess.com] Southern States Power Co. Inc. a member of the National Biodiesel Board, has added F & H Construction, a company with extensive experience building generating stations and power plants, to its team that plans to develop large-scale Renewable Energy projects for Native American Tribes through its alliance agreement with the Council of Resource Energy Tribes (CERT) and other electricity customers. F & H Construction, based in Stockton, California, has more than 40 years of experience in the construction field and is recognized as leader in successfully building water and wastewater plants, process plants and power plants, such as the Kauai Power Partners Power Plant in Kauai, Hawaii, the Maalaea Power Plant in Maui, Hawaii, the Port Allan Generating Station in Kauai, Hawaii, and the Miki Basin Power Plant in Lanai, Hawaii. Depending on the needs of each project, F & H Construction may provide services, which include the full spectrum of equipment supply, commissioning, spare parts, and remote monitoring of operating facilities. “Our alliance with CERT and its member Tribes is such a significant development with the potential to bring substantial future revenue to Southern States, a major focus of the company’s efforts has been to assemble a highly skilled team to bring these electricity generation projects to fruition,” said Harrison A. McCoy, III, president and chief executive officer of SSPC. “The addition of a construction firm, such as that of F & H Construction, with a successful track record in building state-of-the-art energy production facilities, adds even greater strength to the SSPC agreement with CERT. The number of renewable energy opportunities presented to Southern States continues to grow, and we plan to involve additional accomplished partners with our project development team.” Founded in 1963, F & H Construction’s experience with a wide array of projects, from sports arenas to power generation facilities, has placed it on the forefront of general services and construction companies. “F & H’s Power & Industrial Division is prepared to assist Southern States Power Company in the construction of bio-energy conversion facilities and bio-energy fueled hybrid power plants. We look forward to an exciting year working with CERT projects and independent bio-energy power projects,” said Joe Welsh, power & industrial division manager.
