Tampa company aims to reduce emissions, cut energy costs


Published:

While nationally, the Obama administration recently announced regulations to cut the amount of carbon dioxide the U.S. energy sector may emit, locally, an eco-friendly company CEO is already doing his part to help heal the environment and reduce carbon dioxide emissions.

Mickey Owens, CEO of GES Green Technology, has discovered an affordable energy-saving alternative that has been mainly un-marketed to the public since its invention over a decade ago.

Called IceCOLD, the catalyst promises to reduce carbon dioxide emissions and offers a money- back guarantee of a minimum of 10 percent savings in business electricity cost.

Approved by General Service Administration for the U.S. Government to reduce energy costs and CO2 emissions, Owens’ goal is to make IceCOLD a recognized eco-friendly name, synonymous with environmental healing and energy savings.

“IceCOLD is added to the air conditioner just like Freon. It allows the air-conditioning unit to run more efficiently, saving energy, reducing your energy costs and cutting CO2 emissions,” said Owens. “The system runs less, thereby using less electricity and it lasts the lifetime of the air-conditioning unit, does not need to be refilled, and does not void the warranty, as some air-conditioning companies have claimed.”

According to the IceCOLD website, 7-Eleven Corporation USA reported a savings of 1.3 million pounds of CO2 every year at its refrigerated warehouses.

“We’ve had thousands of successful installations and zero complaints,” said Owens. “Generally, the return on investment on a product like this is years down the road. Every other energy conception has a payback of three to five years. IceCOLD has a payback of less than one year, an ROI of up to 500 percent and higher, and it lasts the life of your unit.”

Most recently, after viewing an IceCOLD demonstration under operating conditions, the Southeastern Fisheries Association is recommending IceCOLD to their fisheries.

“We choose IceCOLD because of the potential to put in a device that would reduce emissions and save electrical. All the people in the seafood industry know this is an opportunity to save on their electrical and help the environment at the same time,” said Southern Fisheries Association Executive Director Bob Jones. “Here’s our chance to do our part as far as climate change.”

Along with promoting the eco-friendly alternative in the United States, IceCOLD is launching in Latin America and the Dominican Republic. The Dominican Republic imports 90 percent of its energy fuel requirements.

Owens is working with Ramon Alburquerque, of the Alburquerque Energy Renewable Association in the Dominican Republic, to implement IceCOLD into hotels, office buildings and other places of business where an outdated utility grid has caused rolling blackouts.

“We started using this product in a few hotels and government institutions with great success in terms of energy savings,” said Ramon. “Its application will save many hotels from bankruptcies because of their awfully high electrical bills. The same is happening with other sectors of the economy, as well as with the governmental buildings, hospitals and study centers. We used to say that IceCOLD has come to help us with the extremely high pricing of energy today. Petroleum represents 25 percent of the imports of Dominican Republic and IceCOLD will contribute greatly in saving part of this money.”

Owens is convinced IceCOLD can help solve this serious environmental problem worldwide.

“IceCOLD is an affordable and simple solution to a universal problem,” said Owens. “With a money-back guarantee, it’s a win-win situation for the consumer and more importantly, for our environment.”
