WEST PALM BEACH, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 05/08/14 -- Upower, Inc. ("UPI" or the "Company"), an emerging independent power provider, has executed a memorandum of understanding ("MOU") with BG Energy, SA de CV ("BG Energy") of Mexico, BG Energy specializes in promoting and developing electrical power generation projects from renewable sources and environmental improvement projects within Mexico.
The purpose of this MOU is to establish the terms and conditions pursuant to which BG Energy shall secure and obtain all necessary licenses, permits, other approvals necessary and any other required assistance which UPI may need to successfully negotiate and potentially enter into one or more power purchase agreements. BG Energy has initially identified two site locations each of which could be designed for a 30 MW photovoltaic power plant and each site location is within the North and Northeast zones as defined by the CFE (Comision Federal de Electricidad) of Mexico.
Enrique Pallares, UPI's Chief of Business Development, who was instrumental in the Company procuring this MOU and beginning this partnership, was quoted as saying "We are most excited and enthused about being integrally involved with the development and construction of potentially two or more 30 MW photovoltaic power plants which will hopefully, contribute to Mexico's employment, continued economic growth through the use of clean energy and power an estimated 5,000 homes per 30 MW project, such as the 30 MW photovoltaic power plant developed in San Bernardino, CA by Abengoa."
David Macias Chief Executive Officer, commented that "The MOU is an exciting and important step in furtherance of our mission: To generate electricity by building and/or acquiring power plants globally and striving to maximize performance and returns for our shareholders, while remaining environmentally conscious." Mr. Macias continued in stating that, "By Mexico opening its energy sector to foreign investors after 75 years, Mexico has lured in more than American oil companies and up until recently, most of Mexico's clean energy was produced by hydroelectric stations while wind and solar energy combined produced less than 1.5% of the power. With local and foreign companies receiving permits for 215 megawatts of solar plans, over 40,000 homes in the country's sunnier northern regions will receive ample power and Mexico's solar capacity will increase by fivefold".

Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...
