The Philadelphia Parking Authority (PPA) is attempting to become more environmentally friendly, while saving some green at the gas pump, with their vehicle fleet. A selected group of PPA vehicles have been chosen to be retrofitted with the SMART Emissions Reducer as a 90 day study, to see if the SMART Emissions Reducer will help the PPA lower harmful emissions of vehicles they already have on the road.

MART Emissions Reducer offers the side benefit of fuel savings, assisting the PPA in some budget relief at the fuel pump. The trial began on March 11.

Extreme Energy Solutions Inc. of Ogdensburg and Corporate Partner SMART Air Fuel Saver LLC of Florida, has dispatched their top technical team to handle the initial installation of the devices.

Overseeing the project is John Primerano, Regional Representative for Extreme and Ken Henshaw, Fleet Manager for the PPA. Both teams will monitor the performance of the SMART device from an administrative and technical perspective, with input from the PPA, where officials will report back their fuel economy results.

Primerano, with Extreme Energy Solutions Inc., says, "Should the vehicles experience the expected lower emissions and fuel savings numbers, as the SMART devices have delivered in the past, it would be a major win for the City of Philly to have technology that can deliver real green benefits and aid in reducing City budget costs". Primerano is also a resident of Philadelphia.

At the conclusion of the testing, emissions and fuel economy data will be reviewed. Upon completion of the review, the PPA will have an option to explore retrofitting their remaining fleet vehicles.

Extreme Energy Solutions Inc. CEO/President, Samuel K. Burlum, who also is the Vice President of SMART Air Fuel Saver LLC, said that he was looking forward in partnering with the City of Philadelphia in testing the SMART device.

"Our company is confident that the trial program will demonstrate positive results for the PPA, and are proud to partner with an agency that has taken the initiative to explore ways to lessen their carbon footprint, while saving taxpayer dollars," said Burlum.

Extreme Energy Solutions Inc., was recently featured on Today in America, hosted and narrated by Football Legend and Sports Commentator Terry Bradshaw. Extreme will also be highlighted at the World Green Energy Symposium, this year held at Hunter College, in New York City, March 26.
