According to a release, Governor Richardson is a leading proponent of renewable energy and energy efficiency solutions. His experience as a leader in energy policy at the state and federal level is expected to be of great benefit, as BBLU becomes a significant owner of distributed generation power plants and for our energy efficiency business and the roll out of our new battery and energy management control technologies. Additional directors are expected to be appointed prior to an exchange listing.
Governor Richardson is the former Secretary of the United States Department of Energy, former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, and former Governor of New Mexico.

Prior to serving as Governor, Richardson had a very successful career in public service and has been nominated several times for the Nobel Peace Prize.
