WAKE FOREST, N.C. --(Business Wire)--

PowerSecure International, Inc.

The new IOU contract represents an increase of approximately 50 percent over last year's work levels.

In addition, the new business awards include approximately $18 million of new distributed generation (DG) business, approximately $4 million of additional new UI business, and approximately $4 million in new energy efficiency (EE) sales.

The approximately $18 million in new DG business includes approximately $10 million from a variety of hospital, data center, grocery/retail and industrial projects, and approximately $3 million from a solar project. The DG total also includes approximately $5 million in new recurring revenues for company-owned DG projects for the northeast regional division of a major grocer.
