Microfield's EnergyConnect Signs Thomas Jefferson University.

PORTLAND, Ore. -- Microfield Group, Inc. ("Microfield") (OTCBB:MICG) today announced that its subsidiary, EnergyConnect, Inc. ("ECI"), has completed an Agreement for services with Thomas Jefferson University (TJU) in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

The initial project will include seven buildings of the TJU downtown Philadelphia campus. These buildings will be combined with other ECI participants in the region to service PJM, the regional grid operator. The services provided by TJU and ECI provide a growing capability to reduce electric supply and delivery costs and improve grid reliability for all electric energy consumers in the region.

"Thomas Jefferson University is the type of facility that has tremendous imminent potential because TJU has done its energy homework. TJU has installed energy systems to improve efficiency, conserve, and effectively manage energy on the consumer side of the meter. ECI will now help TJU leverage that investment to provide benefits on the supply side of the meter," stated Rodney M. Boucher, Chief Executive Officer of Microfield and ECI.

Randolph Haines, Energy Manager of TJU said, "We are looking forward to working with ECI and receive payments for the services we provide to the electric grid. TJU has been an energy management leader. Entering this arrangement with ECI is consistent with our goal to be a leading example of beneficial ways to manage energy use. As an early participant, we expect to help ECI develop new ways to harvest the capabilities of our buildings to respond to the needs of the grid. The potential regional and national benefits are huge."
