Designation Creates New Opportunities for World Energy to Provide Energy Efficiency Services for Massachusetts Businesses

Worcester, MA – February 14, 2012 – World Energy Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: XWES), a leading energy management services firm, today announced it has been selected by NSTAR (NYSE: NST), the largest Massachusetts-based, investor-owned electric and gas utility, as an approved contractor within its Direct Install Program. This program is designed to help businesses with average monthly demand of 300 kW or less save money on energy through the implementation of energy efficiency measures.

As an NSTAR Direct Install contractor, World Energy is approved by the utility to provide comprehensive energy conservation measures, including energy management systems (EMS), HVAC, retro-commissioning and installing variable frequency drives, throughout the NSTAR service territory. The cost of these efficiency projects is being supplemented directly by NSTAR, with the utility offering to pay as much as 70 percent of the total cost of qualifying lighting and mechanical retrofits.

“Becoming a go-to resource for mechanical retrofits within NSTAR’s Direct Install Program is a major opportunity for our energy efficiency practice in Massachusetts and one that builds nicely on our newly won efficiency designations within Connecticut,” said Bruce Buckbee, Vice President, Efficiency, at World Energy Solutions. “We are looking forward to participating in this important program, bringing the benefits of energy efficiency to a wider swath of businesses across the state.”
