ConEdison Development Acquires Three Key Assets of Juhl Energy, Inc.

National Renewable Leader Purchases Interest in Three Operating Wind Facilities, O & M Business, and Approximately 500-MW Pipeline of Wind Projects in the Midwest

CHANHASSEN, MN--(Marketwired - Jan 30, 2017) - Juhl Energy Inc., (OTC PINK: JUHL) ("Juhl Energy") a leading provider of clean energy solutions, today announced the sale of certain of its subsidiary companies to ConEdison Development ("CED"), one of America's largest owners and operators of renewable energy infrastructure projects. 

"This transaction represents the culmination of our successes over the past eight years and the strength of our ongoing business plan," stated Dan Juhl, Chairman and CEO of Juhl Energy. "We are honored to have sold these particular components of our business to a leading renewable energy company such as ConEdison Development. We're confident that CED has the capacity to create further value from these assets, while we devote our future efforts to three key areas in which we believe we possess a clear leadership position," added Juhl. 

"Our ongoing focus will be centered on projects under 20 MWs, and specifically, the development of our standardized 5 MW wind/solar hybrid systems designed for rural communities and municipal electric companies. In addition, through our engineering subsidiary, Power Engineers Collaborative, LLC, we are seeing a growing pipeline of wind, solar and combined heat/power projects in this same size range for industrial, college, and healthcare campuses. Finally, we expect to rebuild our asset ownership business with new acquisitions of renewable energy assets under 20 MWs across our areas of expertise," continued Juhl. 

"With this transaction, our balance sheet has been substantially strengthened with a strong cash position and the extinguishment of all of our long-term debt," said John Brand, Chief Financial Officer of Juhl Energy, Inc. "We expect that the proceeds from this transaction will allow us to provide a return to our shareholders in the form of either stock repurchases or a dividend during 2017. Of course, this is subject to a full analysis of our tax obligations, ongoing working capital needs and approval of our board of directors," added Brand.

While specific details of the transaction have not been disclosed, highlights of the acquisition include:

  • CED has purchased Juhl Energy's interest in a portfolio of three operating wind projects that have a total capacity of approximately 36 megawatts ("MW") and are located in Minnesota and Iowa. 
  • CED has also acquired Juhl Energy Service Inc.'s operating and maintenance ("O&M") services business. The O&M unit currently supports ten individual projects and associated personnel.
  • CED also acquired Juhl Energy's interest in a pipeline of wind projects, primarily larger projects, consisting of approximately 500 MW in the Mid-West. 

CED and Juhl Energy expect to continue to co-develop projects together over the next few years.

Juhl Energy, Inc. Files Form 15 to Terminate SEC Reporting Obligations

Pipestone, MN -- September 23, 2015 -- Juhl Energy Inc. (OTCQB: JUHL, the "Company"), a leading provider of Clean Energy Solutions and the Leader in Community Wind Power, today announced that on September 23, 2015 it voluntarily filed a Form 15 with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the "Commission" or "SEC") to voluntarily deregister its common stock and suspend its reporting obligations under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"). The Company cited the significant cost, limited benefit and very limited trading of its stock as some of its reasons in taking this step. As a result of the filing of Form 15 with the Commission, the Company will no longer be required to file certain reports under the Exchange Act, including quarterly reports on Form 10-Q, annual reports on Form 10-K, and current reports on Form 8-K. Other filing requirements will terminate upon the effectiveness of the deregistration, which is expected to occur 90 days after the filing of the Form 15 with the Commission. The Company expects and will allow its common stock to cease trading on the OTCQB. It is possible that other trading avenues, such as the OTC Pink Marketplace may be available for parties interested in trading the Company's stock. There can be no assurance, however, that any broker-dealer will make or continue to make a market in the Company's common stock, which would be required for trading on the Pink Sheets.

 

Despite electing to suspend its reporting obligations, the Company plans to voluntarily file a Form 8-K with the Commission, following the close of its current fiscal quarter, to include certain financial information for the quarter ended September 30, 2015.

 

The independent members of Juhl Energy's Board of Directors voted unanimously to file Form 15 after deliberation and consideration of the advantages and disadvantages of being an SEC reporting company. The Company's Board of Directors considered many elements in reaching their decision, including: the substantial costs, both direct and indirect, associated with the preparation and filing of periodic reports with the SEC, the current level of analysts coverage, the minimal liquidity for the Company's common stock, the additional outside legal and accounting resources required, the amount of time management spends on reporting documents, the uncertainty across the broader public market for public stocks, as well as the nature and extent of the trading of the Company's common stock.

 

"In addition to the high cost of being public in what we feel is a low liquidity environment, we have determined that the market is extremely difficult for micro-caps, and at best, very inefficient," stated John Mitola, President of Juhl Energy, Inc.    "The large swings that have occurred in the market over the past two months based on 'news of the day' versus investment fundamentals have affected the large cap market as well.  In lieu of all this, management feels that by stepping out of this world, our team will be free to focus solely on our ongoing growth and building the long-term value of our Company.  

 

"We must note that our interpretations are not isolated, almost 1,000 companies filed Form 15s last year, and over 600 companies have done so already this year.  I believe much of this fracture in the marketplace is a fallout of the market crash of 2008 – and as a result, liquidity has never returned to small cap and micro-cap stocks," added Mitola.

Juhl Energy, Inc. Announces First Quarter 2015 Financial Results

Company Forecasts Solid 2015 as First Quarter Revenue Jumps 9.4%, Net Loss Decreases Over 58%

PIPESTONE, MN. --May 14, 2015 -- Juhl Energy, Inc. (OTCQB: JUHL, the "Company"), a leading provider of Clean Energy Solutions and the Leader in Community Wind Power, today announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015.


"The first quarter of 2015 represents a solid continuation of the steps we took in the last six months of 2014," stated Dan Juhl, Chairman and CEO of Juhl Energy, Inc. "We wrapped up work on the Oak Tree wind farm, and began work on another large project we expect to co-develop in 2015 with a local developer and one of our leading utility partners. In addition, we negotiated terms to acquire another operational, 20-25 MW wind farm in the Midwest. This acquisition is consistent with those we made in 2014 and will add to our Juhl Renewable Asset Inc.'s residual revenue and cash flow. All in all, we feel we are on track for a very solid 2015."

 

Financial Highlights for the Three Month Period Ended March 31, 2015:

 

  • Total revenue increased by approximately $293,000, or 9.4%, from approximately $3,129,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2014, to approximately $3,422,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2015. The increase in revenue is primarily attributable to growth in engineering consulting services to the utility industry and increased solar installation revenue, together with the effects of growth in sales stemming from our acquisitions of two wind farms in 2014.

 

  • Gross margins as a percentage of revenue for the quarter ended March 31, 2015 improved to 37% of revenue. We have observed higher margins from engineering services, together with gross margin contributions from our solar business and higher electricity sales.

 

  • Operating expenses across 2015 and 2014 were relatively constant as a percentage of our revenue. We note an 11% decrease in the selling general and administrative component as a result of cost controls.

 

  • Operating loss decreased approximately $177,000, from an operating loss of $520,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2014 to an operating loss of approximately $343,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2015. The decrease in loss is primarily attributable to higher gross margins that are occurring from each of our business units.

 

  • Net loss decreased by approximately $766,000 from a net loss of approximately $1,311,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2014 to a net loss of approximately $545,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2015. The decrease in net loss which is primarily attributable to the reasons described in the change in our Operating Loss, together with a reduction in losses incurred by the now defunct tower services subsidiary.

 

  • Adjusted EBITDA increased by nearly $200,000 from approximately $54,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2014 to approximately $251,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2015. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure and as used herein represents net income before interest expense, depreciation and amortization, and other charges including unrealized gain/loss on an interest rate swap arrangement, revenue levelization accounting on power purchase contracts, stock compensation expense, asset impairment charges, and discontinued operations.

 

  • Basic and diluted net loss per share of ($0.02) per common share for the quarter ended March 31, 2014 compares to the ($0.04) net loss per common share for quarter ended March 31, 2015.

Juhl Energy, Inc. Reports Second Quarter 2014 Financial Results

PIPESTONE, MN., August 21, 2014 -- Juhl Energy, Inc. (OTCBB: JUHL, the "Company"), a leading provider of Clean Energy Solutions and the Leader in Community Wind Power, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30th, 2014.   

 

"Our second quarter results continue to show ongoing year-over-year growth due to the strength of our base businesses and our diversification strategy," stated Dan Juhl, Chairman and CEO of Juhl Energy, Inc. "We saw solid operating results from our wind farms and their associated electricity sales. The strong foundation provided by our Juhl Renewable Assets wind farm ownership and operations is precisely why we are so focused on growing our portfolio of wind farms, and is supported by our recent acquisition of two existing projects in Iowa," added Juhl.

 

"While we continued to post strong growth in the second quarter, we also took important steps to maintain our growth trajectory through the remainder of 2014 and beyond," added John Mitola, President of Juhl Energy. "During the second quarter, we raised additional working capital through the offering and sale of common stock, and provided value propositions that led to Juhl being selected to build a $5.0 million project for the Tooele Army Depot, as well as being named principal rooftop solar system installer for the Solar Chicago program. These successes, coupled with our ongoing work on our $40.0 million Purdue wind farm project, have set the stage for continued growth throughout the latter half of this year."

 

Financial Highlights for the Three- and Six-Month Period Ended June 30, 2014:

 

  • Total revenue increased by approximately $585,000, or 19.9%, from approximately $2,935,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2013, to approximately $3,520,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2014. The increase in revenue is primarily attributable to growth in engineering consulting services to the utility industry, together with sales of solar products associated with the February 2014 PVPower asset acquisition.

 

  • Total revenue increased by approximately $1,269,000 or 23.2% from approximately $5,467,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2013, to approximately $6,736,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2014. The increase in revenue is primarily attributed to development and construction activities relating to the completion of the 3.4 mw wind energy facility in Russells Point, Ohio in the first quarter, combined with revenue increases from electricity sales of our consolidated wind farms due to better than average wind conditions as well as growth in engineering consulting services to the utility industry.

  • Gross margins as a percentage of sales for the six months ended June, 2014 are consistent with the gross margin percentage reported for the comparative period one year ago. We have observed higher margins stemming from better wind conditions in 2014, together with growth in gross margin dollars in all of our business areas except tower maintenance services. Tower maintenance services have been significantly impacted by production inefficiencies, winter weather issues and a significant work slowdown earlier this year regarding antenna supply delays by one of the major cellular carriers.

 

  • We experienced additional losses in our tower maintenance business during the second quarter, and we have altered our approach to the type of projects and the scale of our operations to allow for profitability and cash flow of this business unit.

 

  • Operating expenses, as a percentage of our revenue were 51% of revenue for the six month period ended June 30, 2013 as compared to 56% for the six months ended June 30, 2014. The increase is related to higher than normal professional fees, non-cash stock compensation expense, and investments in the expansion of our solar system sales and integration services.

 

  • Operating Loss increased approximately $654,000, from an operating loss of $1,604,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2013 to an operating loss of approximately $2,258,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2014. The increase in loss is primarily attributable to the negative operating margins of Juhl Tower Services as well as increases in stock compensation expense and professional fees, offset by higher margins from electricity sales of our consolidated wind farms.

 

  • Net loss increased by approximately $1,246,000 from a net loss of approximately $1,500,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2013 to a net loss of approximately $2,746,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2014. The increase in net loss which is primarily attributable to a $592,000 swing in the fair value adjustments of the interest rate swap arrangement, together with the reasons cited under operating loss above for tower services, stock compensation expense and professional fees.

 

  • Basic and diluted net loss per share of $0.08 per common share for the six months ended June 30, 2013 compares to the $0.11 net loss per common share for six months ended June 30, 2014.

 

A full analysis of results for the period ended June 30, 2014 is available in the Company's Form 10-Q, which is available on the Company's website at www.juhlenergy.com or through the Securities and Exchange Commission's Edgar database at www.sec.gov.

Juhl Energy Completes $4 Million Acquisition of Two Operating Wind Farms in Iowa

Acquisition Brings Company's Total Owned and Operated Wind Farm Assets to Over $30 Million

 

PIPESTONE, MN. – August 12, 2014 -- Juhl Energy, Inc. (OTCBB: JUHL, the "Company"), a leading provider of clean energy solutions and a leader in community wind power development, announced today that the Company has completed its previously announced acquisition of two operating wind farms in Iowa. The $4 million acquisition closed on August 11th, 2014, and the wind projects are now wholly-owned by Juhl Energy.

 

The two GE XLE 1.62 MW wind turbines are located in North Central Iowa near the towns of Manley and Kensett. The wind turbines are installed on private farmland approximately 10 miles apart from each other and have been commercially operating since 2011.

 

"This transaction underscores our ongoing commitment to building our residual, independent power production business made up of wind farms today and other forms of renewable energy in the future," stated John Mitola, President of Juhl Energy. "We believe that building our asset ownership and operating division, with its predictable revenue and cash flow, is the foundation for the ongoing strength of our Company. These two Iowa projects are representative of the hundreds of projects under 50 MWs –the market sector where Juhl stands head and shoulders above others in its ability to own, operate and maintain such assets."

 

"The Iowa projects are being acquired with bank financing and our Juhl Renewable Asset, Inc. preferred stock," continued Mitola. "Currently our JRAI Preferred stock is only available to accredited investors who have an existing relationship with the Company. Our JRAI subsidiary is similar to many of the "yieldcos" that have recently received attention in the market, and it is paying a 9% yield reliably since inception. Juhl and our JRAI subsidiary now own four wind projects totaling approximately 25 megawatts. We maintain our long-term goal of building ownership capacity and hope to progress to management's stated goal of up to 200 megawatts - which would represent energy production assets with an initial installed cost of approximately $400 million. We believe we can get there by adding small projects alongside medium-sized projects one step at a time over the next few years."

 

"For years we have been approached by interested parties we knew who were looking for opportunities to invest directly in our renewable energy projects – so in 2011 we created our JRAI Preferred Stock. We believe with the creation of our JRAI Preferred equity vehicle, we have shown that we can secure assets more quickly, with a competitive cost of capital, while providing our JRAI Preferred investors with a solid annual yield on their investment," added Mitola.

Juhl Energy Team Selected to Lead Development of $5.5 Million Wind Energy Project at Tooele Army Depot near Salt Lake City, Utah

Company Part of Team Awarded $5.5 Million Contract From U.S. Army Corps of Engineers

 

PIPESTONE, MN. – July 21, 2014 -- Juhl Energy, Inc. (OTCQB: JUHL, the "Company"), a leading provider of Clean Energy Solutions and the Leader in Community Wind Power, is pleased to announce today that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Sacramento District has awarded a $5.5 million contract to the team of Juhl Energy, Inc. (MN.), Aegis Renewable Energy (VT.), and Icenogle Construction Management Inc. (CA.) for the development, construction and installation of a 1.5 - 2 megawatt wind turbine at the Tooele Army Depot near Salt Lake City, Utah. Juhl Energy will act in the capacity of the lead design and installation developer and subcontractor.

 

"We are very excited to be involved with the Tooele Wind Project. This contract award underscores the US Army's commitment to reducing its carbon footprint and enhancing energy security," stated Corey Juhl, vice president of development for Juhl Energy. "Like the U.S. Armed Services, we are seeing several large industrial and commercial energy users that are looking to become more energy independent, while saving money at the same time. In most cases, the installation of an on-site renewable energy project such as wind, solar or co-generation is a great way for a large energy user to lock in the bulk of their energy costs for many years."

 

The Tooele Army Depot supports Warfighter readiness through superior receipt, storage, issue, demilitarization and renovation of conventional ammunition and the design, manufacture, fielding and maintenance of ammunition peculiar equipment for the Army, Air Force and Navy facilities in the western United States and much of the Pacific Rim.

 

The Tooele Army Depot Wind Project is currently in the development stage and is scheduled to break ground sometime in late 2014 or early 2015. When completed, it is expected that the wind project will provide enough energy to power 400 to 500 homes.

Juhl Renewable Energy Systems, Inc. Appointed Lead Contractor for Rooftop Solar Installations in City of Chicago

PIPESTONE, Minn., July 15, 2014 -- Juhl Renewable Energy Systems, Inc. a subsidiary of Juhl Energy, Inc. (OTCQB: JUHL, the "Company") and an experienced provider of solar, wind and battery storage systems for homeowners, small business, municipal governments, schools and farming operations, is pleased to announce that its been named as lead contractor for all rooftop installations through Solar Chicago, a new program serving Chicago, Illinois and several neighboring villages. 

 

"We are very honored and excited to be appointed as the principal rooftop solar system installer for the Solar Chicago program to provide affordable and efficient renewable energy solutions for its residential property owners throughout the Chicago metro area," stated Dan Juhl, CEO of Juhl Energy, Inc.

 

Juhl Energy's engineering consulting division PEC ("Power Engineers Collaborative") will support the Company's project management efforts including energy modeling, and the design and installation of the solar projects. 

 

Juhl Renewable Energy Systems partnered with Microgrid Solar and local Chicago-based installation contractors Ailey Solar and Kapital Electric ("Team") to jointly submit a coordinated proposal in response to a competitive Request for Proposal solicitation issued by the Solar Chicago Program Administrator, Vote Solar, a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization. A community evaluation committee selected the Juhl Renewable Energy Systems Team as the Solar Chicago contractor.  In addition to helping participants determine if solar is a good fit for their home, the Team will also offer financing through Admirals Bank.

 

Solar Chicago is offering rooftop solar panel installations to residential property owners through September 30th at 25 percent below market rates through a partnership with the World Wildlife Fund ("WWF") and Vote Solar.  The idea, announced on July 9, 2014, is to jumpstart solar installations in the city, according to Chicago's Chief Sustainability Officer Karen Weigert.  Similar programs have kicked off hundreds of installations in other regions, she said.

 

"We think of this as a way to bring more people into thinking about solar as an option," Weigert said. "And as the market gets stronger with more installations happening in Chicago, we expect there to be more and more growth."

 

The city is paying nothing under the program, which stems from a WWF grant. WWF contracted with Vote Solar and the Chicago-based Environmental Law and Policy Center to administer the program.

 

Sarah Wochos, co-legislative director of the Environmental Law and Policy Center, said her organization's role is to get the word out about the program.  "We have contacted every alderman, every neighborhood group, every book club, every chamber of commerce organization. We see value in trying to help push these types of opportunities into the public space. The more that it happens, the quicker the market grows," she said.

 

"In just the first few days, we have had over 700 individuals register, a terrific start to the program and already exceeding our expectations," said Chuck VonDrehle, VP of Sales at Juhl Energy.  "We are starting to see these types of initiatives surfacing in several other regions of the country, and it really confirms the growing demand for sensible renewable energy solutions.  Instead of a just a roof over your head, you can now have a clean energy solution that is not only reducing your energy costs, but also the carbon footprints of the city and states across the country," added VonDrehle.   

 

According to Vote Solar, allowing the solar industry to serve an aggregated group of homeowners rather than many small residential customers lowers customer acquisition costs for solar companies, and results in lower pricing and attractive terms for participants. In addition to the discounted program pricing, homeowners who complete a project through Solar Chicago will take advantage of a Federal tax credit current set to expire in 2016 (30 percent of the cost of a project) and a rebate from the selected contractor team that increases as more homeowners go solar through the program.

 

"Solar Chicago provides a new way of tackling the challenge of solar soft costs head on, effectively lowering customer marketing and acquisition cost while reducing complexity for homeowners. The program will also help to bring solar energy into the mainstream in this region, enabling community engagement in local sustainability and economic development goals," said Jessie Denver, program director for Vote Solar.

 

Interested homeowners can visit the program website to register http://www.mygroupenergy.com/solarchicago. Once registered, they will be connected with Juhl Energy/MicroGrid Solar to schedule their site evaluation and receive a proposal. Registration does not obligate homeowners moving forward.

The Weather Channel® Visits Honda's Manufacturing Plant Wind Project Developed by Juhl Energy, Inc.

PIPESTONE, MN., April 8, 2014 -- Juhl Energy, Inc. (OTCQB: JUHL, the "Company"), a leading provider of clean energy solutions and a leader in community wind power development, is pleased to announce the recent broadcast of The Weather Channel®'s visit to the Honda Transmission Manufacturing of America plant in Russells Point, Ohio, and tour of the facility, including its on-site wind project.

 

The wind project is owned and operated by ConEdison Solutions of Valhalla, New York, one of America's largest energy services companies, and was developed by Juhl Energy.  

 

David Malkoff, correspondent for The Weather Channel® visited the Honda plant earlier this year. The Honda plant is the first major automotive manufacturing facility in the United States to obtain a substantial amount of its electricity directly from wind turbines located on its property.

 

The two operating wind turbines, with blades that are approximately 160 feet long installed on 260-foot towers, are expected to supply approximately 10 percent of the plant's electricity. Based on their location and actual wind speeds, the combined output from the two wind turbines is estimated at 10,000-megawatt hours (MWH) per year.

 

Tyler Juhl, VP of Juhl Energy Services, Inc. provided Malkoff and his production team with access to the towers and the amazing views from the top of the turbines. "It was great having The Weather Channel at the Honda facility and giving them an opportunity to show that renewable energy definitely has applications for the traditional manufacturing industry," stated Juhl.

 

"Wind power is our country's fastest-growing energy source, and The Weather Channel's coverage is an ideal way to help Americans appreciate wind power's many applications," said Jorge Lopez, CEO of ConEdison Solutions. "We are delighted that The Weather Channel chose to showcase this facility."

Juhl Energy, Inc. Announces Financial Results for Fiscal Year 2013


Company's 2013 Revenue Surges 85.7% Over 2012 to $15.1 million
PIPESTONE, Minn., April 7, 2014 -- Juhl Energy, Inc. (OTCBB: JUHL, the "Company"), a leading provider of
Clean Energy Solutions and the Leader in Community Wind Power, today announced financial results for
the twelve months ended December 31st, 2013.
"We are extremely proud of our significant revenue growth in 2013," stated Dan Juhl, Chairman and
CEO of Juhl Energy, Inc. "Our long-term strategy of providing diversified renewable energy solutions to
communities, industrial and agricultural customers across North America is proving successful, as
demonstrated by the revenue increases we recorded across a majority of our primary business
segments. This diversification is resulting in a growing base business that delivers reliable year-overyear
revenue."
"We are very pleased with the ongoing growth of our family of companies," added John Mitola,
President of Juhl Energy, Inc. "While we continue to develop wind projects throughout North America,
our diversification with wind farm ownership, engineering and field services has resulted in a strong and
steady growth curve since 2008, and just as important as our top-line growth, we have been building a
very solid base of recurring revenue."
"Our marquee project in 2013 was the wind project we built for the Honda Transmission plant in
Russells Point, Ohio – a first of its kind wind system serving a major industrial customer," continued
Mitola. "Yet again, we were able to build a multi-million project on time and under budget, in the
middle of winter, and within a matter of months. This type of outcome represents the capabilities and
expertise of the deep team we have built at Juhl."
"One of the most important steps we took in 2013 was our continued 'democratization' of capital in the
renewable asset class," added Mitola. "This effort started long ago with Dan Juhl's creation of the
'Community Wind' financing model, and our expansion of the Juhl Renewable Assets' preferred stock
instrument has taken it to a whole new level. In the latter half of 2013, we completed what we believe
is the first-of-a-kind raise of our investment pool for our Juhl Renewable Assets, Inc. subsidiary. This
raise was extremely well received, and what we found is strong evidence that individual investors want
to make renewable investments alongside a proven player like Juhl. We remain committed to
democratizing the renewable energy asset class and allowing individual investors to participate in an
attractive market that has for too long been controlled by just a handful of institutions. We are
currently in the process of expanding this investment pool to enable us to acquire two new projects in
the Midwest."
Results for the Year Ended December 31, 2013
 Total revenue increased by approximately $6,970,000, or 85.7%, from approximately $8,131,000
for the year ended December 31, 2012, to approximately $15,101,000, for the year ended
December 31, 2013. The increase in revenue is primarily attributable to the increased revenues
from the effects of the acquisition of Power Engineers Collaborative in 2012 along with the
expansion of maintenance services into the cellular tower industry and the revenue associated
with the development and construction of the 3.4 MgW wind energy facility in Russells Point,
Ohio.
 Juhl's diversification strategy to deliver sustainable revenue growth outside of wind farm
development and construction continues to advance:
 Recurring revenue from our Energy & Telecom Services and Power Plant Ownership
segments exceeded $11 million in 2013 as a result of adding these operations at various
times since late 2011,
 The start-up of our cellular tower maintenance services division in 2013 is expected to grow
our revenues in excess of $4 million annually, but we acknowledge that our 2013 net loss
significantly impacted our operating results through initial start-up costs and inefficiencies
related to launching this new service capability.
 Gross margins declined to approximately 18% of revenue as we have expensed the start-up
costs of launching the cellular tower upgrade and maintenance services and the associated
productivity inefficiencies with this added capability, together with lower than average year
wind conditions in the Upper Midwest which attributed to lower electricity sales and an
inventory valuation adjustment.
 Operating expenses, as a percentage of our revenue, are 37% of revenue for the year ended
December 31, 2013 as compared to 57% for year ended December 31, 2012, indicating that we
have controlled our indirect overhead expenses while simultaneously achieving significant
revenue growth.
 Operating loss increased by approximately $1,341,000, from an operating loss of approximately
$1,541,000 for the year ended December 31, 2012 to an operating loss of approximately
$2,882,000 for the year ended December 31, 2013. The increase in operating loss is primarily
attributable to the start-up expenses and challenging startup operating margins in establishing
the tower services capability of Juhl Tower Services – a division of our Juhl Energy Services
subsidiary—together with unusual charges related to inventory adjustments, non-cash
acquisition-related amortization charges and stock issuance costs, offset by the positive impact
of development fee and construction income in the fourth quarter. The total of unusual
charges included in our operating loss approximated $750,000, and, in addition, non-cash
depreciation charges were approximately $1,275,000.
 Net loss increased by approximately $100,000, from a net loss of approximately $2,946,000 for
the year ended December 31, 2012 to a net loss of approximately $3,046,000 for the year ended
December 31, 2013. The increase is primarily attributable to the start-up, operating loss
incurred in the Juhl Tower Services division as noted above, combined with the inventory
adjustment and write-off of issuance fees, offset by a full year of margin associated with our
engineering consulting business and the margins obtained from the development and
construction of the Honda Transmission wind farm project in Ohio.

Juhl Energy, Inc. Announces Financial Results for Fiscal Year 2013

Company's 2013 Revenue Surges 85.7% Over 2012 to $15.1 million

 

PIPESTONE, Minn., April 7 , 2014 -- Juhl Energy, Inc. (OTCBB: JUHL, the "Company"), a leading provider of Clean Energy Solutions and the Leader in Community Wind Power, today announced financial results for the twelve months ended December 31st, 2013.   

 

"We are extremely proud of our significant revenue growth in 2013," stated Dan Juhl, Chairman and CEO of Juhl Energy, Inc. "Our long-term strategy of providing diversified renewable energy solutions to communities, industrial and agricultural customers across North America is proving successful, as demonstrated by the revenue increases we recorded across a majority of our primary business segments. This diversification is resulting in a growing base business that delivers reliable year-over-year revenue."

 

"We are very pleased with the ongoing growth of our family of companies," added John Mitola, President of Juhl Energy, Inc.  "While we continue to develop wind projects throughout North America, our diversification with wind farm ownership, engineering and field services has resulted in a strong and steady growth curve since 2008, and just as important as our top-line growth, we have been building a very solid base of recurring revenue."

 

"Our marquee project in 2013 was the wind project we built for the Honda Transmission plant in Russells Point, Ohio – a first of its kind wind system serving a major industrial customer," continued Mitola. "Yet again, we were able to build a multi-million project on time and under budget, in the middle of winter, and within a matter of months. This type of outcome represents the capabilities and expertise of the deep team we have built at Juhl."

 

"One of the most important steps we took in 2013 was our continued 'democratization' of capital in the renewable asset class," added Mitola. "This effort started long ago with Dan Juhl's creation of the 'Community Wind' financing model, and our expansion of the Juhl Renewable Assets' preferred stock instrument has taken it to a whole new level. In the latter half of 2013, we completed what we believe is the first-of-a-kind raise of our investment pool for our Juhl Renewable Assets, Inc. subsidiary.  This raise was extremely well received, and what we found is strong evidence that individual investors want to make renewable investments alongside a proven player like Juhl. We remain committed to democratizing the renewable energy asset class and allowing individual investors to participate in an attractive market that has for too long been controlled by just a handful of institutions. We are currently in the process of expanding this investment pool to enable us to acquire two new projects in the Midwest."

 

 

 

Results for the Year Ended December 31, 2013

 

  • Total revenue increased by approximately $6,970,000, or 85.7%, from approximately $8,131,000 for the year ended December 31, 2012, to approximately $15,101,000, for the year ended December 31, 2013. The increase in revenue is primarily attributable to the increased revenues from the effects of the acquisition of Power Engineers Collaborative in 2012 along with the expansion of maintenance services into the cellular tower industry and the revenue associated with the development and construction of the 3.4 MgW wind energy facility in Russells Point, Ohio.

 

  • Juhl's diversification strategy to deliver sustainable revenue growth outside of wind farm development and construction continues to advance:

 

  • Recurring revenue from our Energy & Telecom Services and Power Plant Ownership segments exceeded $11 million in 2013 as a result of adding these operations at various times since late 2011,

  • The start-up of our cellular tower maintenance services division in 2013 is expected to grow our revenues in excess of $4 million annually, but we acknowledge that our 2013 net loss significantly impacted our operating results through initial start-up costs and inefficiencies related to launching this new service capability.

 

  • Gross margins declined to approximately 18% of revenue as we have expensed the start-up costs of launching the cellular tower upgrade and maintenance services and the associated productivity inefficiencies with this added capability, together with lower than average year wind conditions in the Upper Midwest which attributed to lower electricity sales and an inventory valuation adjustment.

 

  • Operating expenses, as a percentage of our revenue, are 37% of revenue for the year ended December 31, 2013 as compared to 57% for year ended December 31, 2012, indicating that we have controlled our indirect overhead expenses while simultaneously achieving significant revenue growth.

 

  • Operating loss increased by approximately $1,341,000, from an operating loss of approximately $1,541,000 for the year ended December 31, 2012 to an operating loss of approximately $2,882,000 for the year ended December 31, 2013. The increase in operating loss is primarily attributable to the start-up expenses and challenging startup operating margins in establishing the tower services capability of Juhl Tower Services – a division of our Juhl Energy Services subsidiary—together with unusual charges related to inventory adjustments, non-cash acquisition-related amortization charges and stock issuance costs, offset by the positive impact of development fee and construction income in the fourth quarter. The total of unusual charges included in our operating loss approximated $750,000, and, in addition, non-cash depreciation charges were approximately $1,275,000.

 

  • Net loss increased by approximately $100,000, from a net loss of approximately $2,946,000 for the year ended December 31, 2012 to a net loss of approximately $3,046,000 for the year ended December 31, 2013.  The increase is primarily attributable to the start-up, operating loss incurred in the Juhl Tower Services division as noted above, combined with the inventory adjustment and write-off of issuance fees, offset by a full year of margin associated with our engineering consulting business and the margins obtained from the development and construction of the Honda Transmission wind farm project in Ohio.

 

  • Basic and diluted net loss per share of $0.17 per common share for 2013 compares to the $0.16 net loss per common share for 2012.

 

A full analysis of results for the period ended December 31, 2013 is available in the Company's Form 10-K, which is available on the Company's website at www.juhlenergy.com or through the Securities and Exchange Commission's Edgar database at www.sec.gov.

Juhl Energy, Inc. Reports First Quarter 2014 Financial Results

PJuhl Energy, Inc. Reports First Quarter 2014 Financial Results
PIPESTONE, MN., May 20, 2014 -- Juhl Energy, Inc. (OTCBB: JUHL, the "Company"), a leading provider of
Clean Energy Solutions and the Leader in Community Wind Power, today announced financial results for
the three months ended March 31, 2014.
"Our first quarter results continue to show ongoing year-over-year growth due to the strength of our base
businesses and our diversification strategy" stated Dan Juhl, Chairman and CEO of Juhl Energy, Inc. "We
saw strong operating results from our wind farms and their associated electricity sales. The strong
foundation provided by our Juhl Renewable Assets wind farm ownership and operations is precisely why
we are so focused on growing our portfolio of wind farms and why we recently completed terms to
purchase two existing projects in Iowa."
Results for the Three Months Ended March 31, 2014
 Total revenue increased by approximately $685,000, or 27%, from approximately $2,531,000 for
the three months ended March 31, 2013, to approximately $3,216,000, for the three months
endedMarch 31, 2014. The increase in revenue is primarily attributable to the revenue associated
with the completion of the development and construction activities of the 3.4 mw wind energy
facility in Russells Point, Ohio combined with revenue increases from electricity sales of our
consolidated wind farms due to better than average wind conditions and cell tower maintenance
services which were not yet being recognized in the comparative period one year ago.
 Gross margins for the three months ended March 31, 2014 are flat with gross margins reported
for the comparative period one year ago. Margins increased in development and construction
services along with the higher electricity sales, offset by the costs of production inefficiencies and
winter weather issues faced by the cellular tower maintenance services and decreased margins
in our engineering business as a result of revenues being flat in comparison to a year ago while
making additional investments in personnel over the past year.
 While we experienced additional losses in our tower maintenance business during the first
quarter, the entire sector experienced a significant slowdown due to antenna supply delays for
the major cellular carriers. It should be noted that this slowdown allowed us additional time to
provide training across our team to prepare for an increase in business we expect to experience
the remainder of 2014. As ofMay 1st, we have seen the sector pick up generally and a significant
increase in our business specifically.
 Operating expenses, as a percentage of our revenue, are 57% of revenue for the three months
endedMarch 31, 2014 as compared to 50% for three months endedMach 31, 2013. The increase
is related to higher than normal professional fees, non-cash stock compensation expense, and
investments in the expansion of our solar system sales and integration services.
 Operating loss increased by approximately $562,000, from an operating loss of approximately
$470,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2013 to an operating loss of approximately
$1,032,000 for the threemonths endedMarch 31, 2014. The increase in operating loss is primarily
attributable to the operating expenses in establishing the tower services capability of Juhl Tower
Services – a division of our Juhl Energy Services subsidiary—together with the operating expenses
increases as noted above.
 Net loss increased by approximately $728,000, from a net loss of approximately $583,000 for the
three months ended March 31, 2013 to a net loss of approximately $1,311,000 for the three
months ended March 31, 2014. The increase is primarily attributable to the operating loss
incurred in the tower maintenance business as noted above, combined with operating expense
increases in stock compensation and professional fees.
 Basic and diluted net loss per share of $0.04 per common share for 2014 compares to the $0.03
net loss per common share for 2013.
A full analysis of results for the period ended March 31, 2014 is available in the Company's Form 10-Q,

Juhl Energy Reaches Agreement to Acquire Two Operating Wind Projects in Iowa

Company Continues Emphasis of Acquiring Quality Renewable Energy Assets; Portfolio Will Now Include 5 Projects in Minnesota and Iowa

 

PIPESTONE, MN. -- May 8, 2014 -- Juhl Energy, Inc. (OTCQB: JUHL, the "Company"), a leading provider of clean energy solutions and a leader in community wind power development, announced today that the Company, through its Juhl Renewable Assets, Inc. ("JRAI") division, recently reached a definitive agreement to acquire two operating wind farms in Iowa. The projects utilize GE turbines and total 3.24 megawatt nameplate capacity. The wind turbine projects are located in north central Iowa outside the towns of Manley and Kensett and have been commercially operating since November 2011. The transaction is expected to close in the next few months.

 

"This transaction underscores our ongoing commitment to building our residual, independent power production business made up of wind farms today and - we hope - other forms of renewable energy in the future," stated John Mitola, president of Juhl Energy. "We believe that building our asset ownership and operating division, with its predictable revenue and cash flow, is the foundation for the ongoing strength of our company. These two Iowa projects are representative of the thousands of projects under 50 MWs –the market sector where Juhl stands head and shoulders above others in its ability to own, operate and maintain such assets."

 

"The Iowa projects are being financed with bank debt and our Juhl Renewable Asset preferred stock," continued Mitola. "Currently our JRAI Preferred stock is only available to accredited investors who have an existing relationship with the Company. Our JRAI subsidiary is similar to many of the "yieldcos" that have recently received attention in the market, and it is paying a 9% yield reliably since inception. After we close on the Iowa projects, our JRAI division will own and operate 5 wind projects totaling approximately 25 megawatts. We maintain our long-term goal of building ownership capacity and hope to progress to management's stated goal of up to 200 megawatts - which would represent energy production assets with an initial installed cost of approximately $400 million. We believe we can get there by adding small projects alongside medium sized projects one step at a time over the next few years."

 

"To put our platform of accumulating energy assets in perspective, currently there are over 6,000 MWs of wind farms with nameplate capacity of less than 50 MW operating in North America. As a result, we believe our goals for additional asset acquisitions are reasonable given Juhl's presence in wind power industry and our position in the smaller wind space," said Mitola.

 

The two GE XLE 1.62 MW wind turbines are located in North Central Iowa near the towns of Manley and Kensett. The wind turbines are installed on private farmland approximately 10 miles apart from each other. Juhl Renewable Assets, Inc., Juhl Energy's wholly-owned subsidiary, will purchase both projects by acquiring 100% of the membership interests held by the existing owners for $2.0 million and the assumption of debt in place at the project level. The $2.0 million required to close on the Iowa projects will be raised through JRAI's 9.0% Series A Preferred equity offering to individual accredited investors and qualifying institutions that have an existing relationship with the Company.

 

"For years we have been approached by interested parties we knew who were looking for opportunities to invest directly in our renewable energy projects – so a few years ago we created our JRAI Preferred Stock. We believe with the creation of our JRAI Preferred equity vehicle, we have shown that we can secure assets more quickly, with a competitive cost of capital, while providing our JRAI Preferred investors with a solid annual yield on their investment," added Mitola.

Juhl Energy, Inc. Appoints Chuck Templeton to its Board of Directors

Technology-Industry Leader Joins Juhl Energy as Company Takes Another Step Forward in its Growth

 

PIPESTONE, MN.-- April 15, 2014 -- Juhl Energy, Inc. (OTCQB: JUHL, the "Company"), a leading provider of clean energy solutions and a leader in community wind power development, is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Chuck Templeton to its Board of Directors.

 

Effective April 9, 2014, by unanimous action of the Board of Directors of Juhl Energy, Inc., Chuck Templeton was appointed as a Class I Director of the Company and whose term will expire at the annual meeting of shareholders in 2016. Mr. Templeton is an "independent director" as defined under NASDAQ rules and by the regulations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Templeton will serve on the Company's Audit Committee, Compensation Committee and Nominations and Governance Committee.

 

"Chuck is passionate about early stage and emerging companies, and is focused on using business principles to find solutions to the world's most pressing problems," stated Dan Juhl, Chairman of Juhl Energy. "He has had the pleasure of being involved with over two-dozen startups as either an investor, a board member or as an advisor, and currently spends the majority of his time helping impact young, growing companies as Chairman of Impact Engine. We are very proud to add Chuck to our team as a board member."

Mr. Templeton took his first big step as an entrepreneur in San Francisco when he founded OpenTable, which went public on the NASDAQ in May of 2009. He helped build an industry leading company that changed the way full-service restaurants manage their top-line growth and diners make their dinner reservations. While CEO, he recruited and hired the first management team, obtained and allocated company resources, led the business and product strategy, and carefully crafted a highly dedicated culture.  OpenTable is the global leader in restaurant reservations with customers in all 50 states and more than a dozen countries.

Templeton used that experience to support the GrubHub team earlier in its growth as an Advisor and Director. He previously served as Chairman of the Board for GrubHub and is on the Board of Directors for Auctions ByCellular, LLC and for Getable.com. He also served as a director of TaskRabbit, Inc. and as a director of I-Go Cars. Chuck spent three years serving in the US Army, becoming Ranger and Sniper qualified. 

"Chuck's appointment has happened concurrent with General Wesley Clark's move from a director to a Senior Advisor to the Board," continued Dan Juhl. "This has allowed us to maintain director independence while at the same time enjoying the leadership and guidance that both of these two fine people bring to our Company. We believe Mr. Templeton's focus on environmental issues as well as his demonstrated past success and business acumen will be an asset to the Board"

 

Effective April 9, 2014, General Wesley K. Clark (ret.) resigned as a director of the Company and assumed the position of Senior Advisor to the Board. General Clark served as a director of the Company since 2009 and was a member of the Company's Audit Committee and Compensation Committee and also served as Chairman of the Company's Nominations and Governance Committee. Since August 13, 2013, the number of directors constituting the Board has been set at six members. Taking into account the appointment and resignation reported herein, the Company has five directors and one vacancy on the Board.

The Weather Channel® Visits Honda's Manufacturing Plant Wind Project Developed by Juhl Energy, Inc.

PIPESTONE, MN., April 8, 2014 -- Juhl Energy, Inc. (OTCQB: JUHL, the "Company"), a leading provider of clean energy solutions and a leader in community wind power development, is pleased to announce the recent broadcast of The Weather Channel®'s visit to the Honda Transmission Manufacturing of America plant in Russells Point, Ohio, and tour of the facility, including its on-site wind project.

 

The wind project is owned and operated by ConEdison Solutions of Valhalla, New York, one of America's largest energy services companies, and was developed by Juhl Energy.  

 

David Malkoff, correspondent for The Weather Channel® visited the Honda plant earlier this year. The Honda plant is the first major automotive manufacturing facility in the United States to obtain a substantial amount of its electricity directly from wind turbines located on its property.

 

The two operating wind turbines, with blades that are approximately 160 feet long installed on 260-foot towers, are expected to supply approximately 10 percent of the plant's electricity. Based on their location and actual wind speeds, the combined output from the two wind turbines is estimated at 10,000-megawatt hours (MWH) per year.

 

Tyler Juhl, VP of Juhl Energy Services, Inc. provided Malkoff and his production team with access to the towers and the amazing views from the top of the turbines. "It was great having The Weather Channel at the Honda facility and giving them an opportunity to show that renewable energy definitely has applications for the traditional manufacturing industry," stated Juhl.

 

"Wind power is our country's fastest-growing energy source, and The Weather Channel's coverage is an ideal way to help Americans appreciate wind power's many applications," said Jorge Lopez, CEO of ConEdison Solutions. "We are delighted that The Weather Channel chose to showcase this facility."

Juhl Energy, Inc. Prepares for Significant Growth of its Juhl Tower Services Division

Company's Subsidiary Poised to Benefit from Global Mobile Device Proliferation

Pipestone, MN – March __, 2014 – Juhl Energy, Inc. (OTCQB: JUHL, the "Company"), a leading provider of Clean Energy Solutions and the Leader in Community Wind Power, is pleased to announce today that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Juhl Tower Services has positioned itself for tremendous growth as the size and depth of the mobile data and communications market continues to increase. Wrapping up its startup period in the latter half of 2013, Juhl Tower enters 2014 having already completed work on approximately 156 cellular tower sites, in several states stretching from Illinois to West Virginia.

 

In 2013, the Company formed Juhl Tower Services, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Juhl Energy Services, Inc. to perform construction, upgrade and maintenance activities on cellular communication towers located throughout the U.S. Juhl Tower Services not only presents the Company with the unique opportunity to provide their wind turbine maintenance expertise and experience to the owners and operators of cellular communication towers, but also creates another growing and collaborative revenue channel for Juhl Energy, Inc.

 

"We entered this business sector because the cellular companies view our core wind business as having key similarities to the upgrade and servicing of cell towers – mainly, knowing how to manage the safety, quality and logistics of performing highly-specialized services while climbing significant heights in the wind turbine business," stated John Mitola, Juhl Energy, Inc. President.  "Most of our work in this area is focused on installing antenna upgrades to existing towers for the major cellular providers as they quickly expand their 4G/LTE networks to meet the requirements of demanding smart-phones, tablets and other wireless components."

 

"In the future, we hope to expand our work in this area to full-scale construction and ownership and operation of our own cell towers – a model that would be consistent with our Juhl Renewable Assets, Inc. subsidiary and its ownership and operation of energy assets," added Mitola.

 

In a September 2, 2013 article published in The Wall Street Journal, Verizon's Chief Executive stated that he "sees the wireless market in the U.S. poised for another growth spurt". The article mentioned that the nation's largest wireless company thought that "mobile penetration could reach 300% to 500%, meaning every person would carry or be connected to networks with three to five unique devices". According to the CTIA, the trade group for the wireless industry, wireless penetration has already topped 102% in the U.S.

 

As Juhl Tower enters its first full year of operations, the Company has taken steps to strengthen its position in the market by completing its business integration of MDTS Inc., an 8-year-old cell tower company based in Chatham, Illinois, that initially joined forces with Juhl Tower through a joint venture.

 

 

Juhl Energy has also made key additions to its management team to handle the expected overall growth in 2014 and beyond. Tom White will continue as Juhl Tower's chief operating officer, while Matt Denney, previously with MDTS, Inc. will serve as Juhl Tower's Senior Vice President of Operations and Mike Borkowski has been added as Senior Vice President of Finance and Business Development of Juhl Tower Services.

 

"Our work in the fourth quarter of 2013 and in the early part of 2014 has shown an increase in number of sites completed by our team for two major carriers. More importantly, I am proud to say we delivered excellent results not just on hitting our own expectations, but also based on direct feedback from our customers commending our crews," continued Mitola. "Based on these results we are being asked to work for more customers and expand into other regions."

 

"It's clear that the market demand for faster service, broader coverage and the ability to work with larger content is paramount to consumers. As a result, we believe the acceleration in the demand for cellular communication towers will continue. We already have our cellular clients talking to us about projects they have planned into 2016. If some of these industry experts are correct in predicting that we could all have multiple devices connected to cellular networks, we could see growth of 3 to 5 times from where the industry is today. While that seems just staggering, we believe that Juhl Tower Services is positioned to potentially capture a solid portion of this industry expansion," added Mitola.

 

"Our team has grown both in the field and in the back office," continued Mitola. "This has positioned Juhl Tower to expand our customer base, our range of services and our geographical footprint to serve more customers in more regions. The added members to our executive team have allowed me the opportunity to focus on one of our new initiatives – the acquisition of existing cell towers to add to our Juhl Renewable Assets portfolio."

 

"Wind towers, cell towers and other forms of clean energy assets all represent long-term utility assets that we all use every day and ones that we believe can provide reliable and predictable cash flows for Juhl and our partners – you can't use a cell phone without a cell tower or without the electricity to charge it!," Mitola concluded.

Juhl Energy, Inc. Enters into Agreement to Buy Back Preferred Shares from Institutional Investor

Transaction Structured to Return Approximately 30% of the Company's Equity to its Shareholders

PIPESTONE, Minn., February 25, 2014 -- Juhl Energy, Inc. (OTCQB: JUHL, the "Company"), a leading provider of Clean Energy Solutions and the Leader in Community Wind Power, today announced that the Company has recently completed an agreement with Vision Opportunity Master Fund, Ltd. ("Vision") to repurchase all of the Juhl Energy, Inc. Series A and B Preferred stock currently held by Vision.  

"This transaction will be followed by the filing of a registration statement to offer this stock to our shareholders in a Rights Offering," stated John Brand, Chief Financial Officer at the Company.  "What this means is that our current shareholders will be given the first opportunity to purchase additional Juhl Energy common stock; and we hope they all participate. Both Juhl Energy Chairman Dan Juhl and President John Mitola have long spoken about 'democratizing' investment capital into the renewable energy industry. By removing our primary institutional investor in what we believe to be a manageable, structured approach, we will have positioned Juhl Energy to be a publicly-traded renewable energy company that is mostly owned by a diversified group of what is now over 1,800 individual shareholders."  

"While Vision has been a solid institutional investor since 2008, this agreement allows us to recapture stock long-held by them, freeing us to clear this ownership concentration and distribute this part of our company back to our common stockholders through our planned Rights Offering," added John Mitola, President of Juhl Energy. "We had previously explored other institutional corporate funding approaches to repurchase this equity and felt that all of them came with too high of an underlying cost of capital and didn't provide enough direct benefit to our shareholders.  In reaching a straightforward arrangement with Vision, we can now provide 100% of the shares that are being recaptured back to all of our shareholders."

When completed, this agreement will also simplify Juhl Energy's capital structure by eliminating the majority of the outstanding preferred stock and removing the current quarterly dividend expense that had accompanied the preferred equity held by Vision.

For additional information on this Vision transaction, refer to the Company's 8-K filing filed on February 24, 2014, with the Securities & Exchange Commission, www.sec.gov, or the Investor Info section of the Juhl Energy home page, www.juhlenergy.com.

Wind Turbines Begin Providing Renewable Energy
at Honda Transmission Plant in Ohio
Two Turbines Are Projected to Supply 10 Percent of the Plant's Electricity

RUSSELLS POINT, Ohio, January 9, 2014 – Consistent with Honda's long history of innovation and the company's commitment to reduce CO2 emissions, Honda Transmission Mfg. of America, Inc., has finalized installation and will begin operation of two power-producing wind turbines next week at its plant in Russells Point, Ohio, through an agreement with a subsidiary of ConEdison Solutions of Valhalla, NY.

The installation of the turbines means that the plant will be the first major automotive manufacturing facility in the United States to obtain a substantial amount of its electricity directly from wind turbines located on its property. Honda Transmission will also reduce CO2 emissions through the use of this renewable energy source.

Studies commissioned by Honda Transmission indicate that wind-generated power is a cost-effective source of electricity for the plant and that the project will not adversely impact local wildlife or the environment. The two wind turbines will supply approximately 10 percent of the plant's electricity. Based on their location and actual wind speeds, combined output from the two wind turbines is estimated at 10,000-megawatt hours (MWH) per year.

The decision to go forward with the project followed completion of a thorough evaluation of renewable energy sources for the plant, which Honda announced in February 2012. The turbines, with blades approximately 160 feet long, have been installed on 260-foot towers on Honda Transmission property, which is suited for a maximum of two wind turbines.

"We appreciate the support we have received from the township and our neighbors throughout all phases of the project that will help Honda work toward our goal of reducing CO2 emissions," said Gary Hand, Vice President of Honda Transmission. "This is just one of many ways that Honda is seeking to reduce our environmental footprint."

"We are proud to be helping Honda strengthen its status as a national leader in sustainability," said Jorge Lopez, CEO of ConEdison Solutions. "Through the example set by Honda, the American manufacturing sector will see more ways it can incorporate renewable power into its facilities."

ConEdison Solutions, one of America's largest energy services companies, will own and operate the two turbines, through its subsidiary, RP Wind, LLC. The company is working in collaboration with Juhl Energy of Pipestone, MN, a leading provider of clean energy solutions, which served as the primary developer of the project. Through agreements with Honda Transmission, ConEdison Solutions will generate electricity for the plant, and be responsible for an interconnect agreement with the Logan County Electric Cooperative and an additional agreement with Buckeye Power, Inc., an Ohio electric cooperative.

"We are honored to work with Honda and ConEdison Solutions to provide wind energy at the Russells Point facility," said Corey Juhl, Vice President of project development for Juhl Energy. "By assisting in the installation of these two wind turbines next to their manufacturing facility, Honda is making tangible and immediate progress towards reducing CO2 emissions."

Globally, Honda has established voluntary goals to reduce the environmental impact of its products and manufacturing operations by 2020. This includes a 30 percent reduction in CO2 emissions from Honda products, and significant CO2 reductions from the company's plants and other operations, compared with year 2000 levels.

To achieve these new environmental targets, Honda is accelerating its efforts to advance the environmental performance of its products, and its operations throughout North America. The wind turbine project is among a number of other initiatives at Honda plants to reduce energy use and waste from manufacturing operations.

Honda Environmental Leadership

Honda is a leader in the development of leading-edge technologies to improve fuel efficiency and reduce CO2 emissions, both in its products and manufacturing operations, as well as from logistics and distribution of its products and parts.

Two Honda automobile plants in Ohio have earned the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) ENERGY STAR certification for the eighth consecutive year, while a Honda auto plant in Indiana earned the designation for the second time in 2013, boosted by energy efficiency gains from the start of a second shift of auto production.

All Honda manufacturing plants have ongoing initiatives to reduce energy consumption. Major areas include installation of energy-efficient equipment, implementing new technologies in auto-body painting systems and lighting efficiency improvements.

Honda of America began production of the Accord Hybrid sedan at the Marysville Auto Plant in fall 2013. This will be the third hybrid model built by Honda in America, joining the Civic Hybrid and Acura ILX produced at Honda Manufacturing of Indiana, LLC in Greensburg, Ind.

Honda has developed numerous technologies to improve the fuel efficiency and reduce CO2 emissions from its products, including the just released 2014 Honda Accord Plug-In Hybrid, the Fit EV, Civic Natural Gas and the Honda FCX Clarity fuel cell electric vehicle.

Honda has also led the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) rankings of overall vehicle environmental performance since 2000, and a Honda vehicle has topped the list of America's greenest vehicles from the America Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) for 15 consecutive years.

About Honda

Honda established operations in America in 1959, and now employs more than 26,000 associates in its U.S. sales, R&D and manufacturing operations with a capital investment of more than $12.5 billion.

Based on its longstanding commitment to "build products close to the customer" Honda operates 14 major manufacturing facilities in North America, producing a wide range of Honda and Acura automobiles, automobile engines and transmissions, Honda all-terrain vehicles, and power equipment products such as lawn mowers, mini-tillers and general purpose engines, using domestic and globally sourced parts.

Juhl Energy, Inc. Reports Revenue Growth of 62% for First Nine Months of 2013

Company's Diversification Strategy Allows for Continuing Quarter-Over-Quarter Growth
Over $3.3 Million in Additional Base Revenue
Focus Remains on Acquisition of Assets and Expanding Revenue Channels
PIPESTONE, Minn., November 18, 2013 -- Juhl Energy, Inc. (OTCBB: JUHL, the "Company"), a leading provider of Clean Energy Solutions and the Leader in Community Wind Power, today announced financial results for the nine months ended September 30th, 2013.

"We continue to be very happy with our financial performance thus far in 2013," stated Dan Juhl, Chairman and CEO of Juhl Energy, Inc. "While we continue to develop wind projects throughout North America, our diversification with engineering, field services and asset ownership is providing on-going quarterly growth and a solid foundation of recurring revenue." John Mitola, President of Juhl, added, "Results through our 3rd quarter continue to show the growing strength of the steps we have taken to diversify our business and to grow a strong base of recurring revenue. During the quarter, we also completed what we believe is the first of a kind raise of our investment pool into our Juhl Renewable Assets subsidiary. This raise was extremely well received and what we found is strong evidence that individual investors want to make investments alongside a proven player like Juhl. We remain committed to "democratizing" the renewable energy asset class and allowing individual investors into a pool that has for too long been controlled by just a handful of institutions."

"Our third quarter also saw the expansion of one of our newest business units – Juhl Tower Services, Inc.," continued Mitola. "Juhl Tower is our effort to expand upon our wind turbine tower services business into the cell tower arena. The unique cabailities that are employed are a natural extension of the work we have long conducted in the turbine industry. Investors will see a strong strategic fit as we grow our cell tower services business while we also look to add cell tower acquisition and long-term ownership similar to our energy assets." Results for the Nine-Month Period Ended September 30, 2013

  • Juhl's diversification strategy to deliver sustainable revenue growth outside of wind farm development and construction fee revenue continues to advance:
  • The Clean Energy Asset Ownership segment and Engineering Consulting segments that were added into our operations in late 2011 and 2012, respectively, are driving approximately $9.0 million of revenue on an annualized basis at acceptable gross margins.
  • The addition of tower maintenance services in 2013 is expected to grow our revenues in excess of $5 million annually, but we acknowledge that our 2013 net loss is significantly impacted by the initial start-up costs and cost inefficiencies related to launching this new service capability.
  • Acquisition of additional energy assets remains a meaningful part of our focus on the growth of our revenue and net income.
  • Total revenue increased by approximately $940,000, or 41.5%, from approximately $2,264,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2012, to approximately $3,204,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2013.
  • Total revenue increased by approximately $3,322,000 to $8,671,000 or 62.1% for the nine months ended September 30th, 2013 as compared to approximately $5,349,000 for the nine months ended September 30th, 2012.
  • The increases in revenue are primarily attributable to the increased revenues from the effects of the acquisition of Power Engineers Collaborative in 2012 along with the expansion of maintenance services into the cellular tower industry.
  • Gross margins declined to approximately 19% of revenue as we have expensed the start-up costs of launching the cellular tower maintenance services and the associated productivity inefficiencies with this added capability, together with lower wind conditions in the Upper Midwest which attribute to lower electricity sales and an inventory valuation adjustment.
  • Operating expenses, as a percentage of our revenue, are 48% of revenue for the nine month period ended September 30, 2013 as compared to 67% for the nine months ended September 30, 2012, indicating that we have controlled our indirect overhead expenses while simultaneously achieving the revenue growth which we expect to trend in this direction.
  • Operating loss increased approximately $1,040,000, from an operating loss of $1,528,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 to an operating loss of approximately $2,568,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2013, which is primarily attributable to the start-up expenses and difficult startup operating margins in establishing the tower services capability of Juhl Tower Services – a subsidiary of our Juhl Energy Services. We expect to improve our operating margins during the fourth quarter as a result of the start of construction and expected completion of a wind farm project in Ohio.
  • Net loss increased by approximately $527,000 from a net loss of approximately $2,171,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 to a net loss of approximately $2,698,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2013, which is primarily attributable to the operating loss incurred in the Juhl Tower Services activities as noted above, and net of fair value adjustments to an interest rate swap arrangement and a $267,000 income tax benefit shown in 2012 whereas there is no such tax benefit recorded in 2013.
  • Basic and diluted net loss of $0.11 per common share for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 compares to the $0.14 net loss per common share for nine months ended September 30, 2013.
    A full analysis of results for the period ended September 30th, 2013 is available in the Company's Form 10-Q, which is available on the Company's website at www.juhlenergy.com or through the Securities and Exchange

Commission's Edgar database at www.sec.gov.

Juhl Wind, Inc. to Install Wind Energy Facility for Honda Plant in Ohio

$8 Million Project Will Supply Honda Manufacturing Facility with Clean, Renewable Energy

PIPESTONE, Minn., Jan. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Juhl Wind, Inc., (OTCQB: JUHL), an established leader in the renewable-energy industry with a focus on Community-based Wind Power development, ownership and management, is pleased to announce an agreement with Honda Transmission Mfg. of America, Inc. to develop, install and operate two utility-scale wind turbines that will generate electricity for the plant in Russell's Point, Ohio.

Juhl Wind is providing full development services along with construction management of the $8 million project, which is scheduled to be completed in 2013. Juhl acquired the development asset from Boulder, Colorado-based NexGen Energy Partners in 2011, and Juhl is expected to take ownership in the project under its Juhl Renewable Asset subsidiary. Juhl will be providing oversight of the construction and ongoing operation of the turbines.

Corey Juhl , Juhl Wind 's vice president of Project Development comments, "We are very pleased and honored to partner with Honda on this industry-leading initiative. The Honda Wind Project represents a growing niche within our renewable energy development services, which includes installing 'behind the meter' wind and solar facilities for large industrial electricity users and corporate clients. Our goal is to continue to grow this sector of our business by providing quality development services to companies that are looking to utilize renewable energy at their planned or existing facilities."

Once the turbines begin operating later this year, the Honda transmission plant will be the first major automotive manufacturing facility in the United States to obtain a substantial amount of its electricity directly from wind turbines located on its property. The turbines, with blades approximately 160 feet long, will be installed on 260-foot towers on Honda Transmission property, which is suited for a maximum of two wind turbines.

An evaluation of the project shows that renewable energy from the two wind turbines will supply approximately 10 percent of the plant's electricity, while also reducing CO2 emissions. Studies commissioned by Honda Transmission indicate that wind-generated power is a cost-effective source of electricity for the plant, and that the project will not adversely impact local wildlife or the environment.

Honda Transmission vice president Gary Hand said: "This is just one of many ways that Honda is seeking to reduce our environmental footprint, and we appreciate the experience and knowledge that Juhl Wind is bringing to this unique wind-generation project. In our own ways, both Honda and Juhl are committed to reducing CO2 emissions."

Globally, Honda has established voluntary goals to reduce the environmental impact of its products and manufacturing operations by 2020. This includes a 30 percent reduction in CO2 emissions from Honda products, and significant CO2 reductions from the company's plants and other operations, compared with year 2000 levels. To achieve these new environmental targets, Honda is accelerating its efforts to advance the environmental performance of its products and operations throughout its North American Region.

There are hundreds of manufacturing facilities similar in size to Honda's transmission plant across the country that are candidates for alternative-energy resources such as wind and solar, Juhl said. As a recognized industry leader and proven developer of over 237 MW's of wind power to date, Juhl is well positioned to acquire additional projects throughout the country to assist in the reduction of our manufacturing carbon footprint and the diversification of our national energy policy.

Juhl Wind, Inc. Enters Joint Venture to Acquire Existing Wind Farms throughout the United States and Canada

PIPESTONE, Minn., Nov. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Juhl Wind, Inc. (JUHL), the Leader in Community Wind Power, is pleased to announce that it recently formed a joint venture with Boulder, Colorado-based 8030 Companies with a focus on the acquisition of existing wind farms and other clean energy assets across the United States and Canada. The joint venture has conducted preliminary discussions with targeted owners of existing wind farms in the upper Midwest and is now expanding its scope across North America.

"We are excited to announce our joint venture with 8030 and to show the wind industry how we are uniquely qualified to partner with and/or acquire existing wind farms across North America," stated John Mitola, President of Juhl Wind. "We are targeting projects that strongly align with our core capabilities in the market - wind farms under 100 megawatts ("MWs"). Despite the tumultuous last 12 months in the wind industry, Juhl Wind's business strategy has allowed the company to remain stable and well-positioned for future growth. Juhl Wind is one of the few companies outside of utility-based conglomerates that maintains operations in every aspect of the clean energy industry – including ownership, full-scale operations, maintenance, engineering, development and financing. We bring our experience and investment discipline to bear in the smaller end of the market where we are extremely competitive and qualified to perform."

"8030 has worked with Juhl since late 2011. Juhl's experience, talent and knowledge in the wind and clean energy space uniquely positions them to provide a significant value proposition to clean energy project owners facing post-warranty and second half operational challenges," added John Brown, President of 8030 Companies. "Juhl brings the operating expertise normally found in big companies to mid and smaller-scale projects, but in a way that embraces their 'Community Wind' and 'Community Scale' background and values. For existing owners of wind farms and clean energy facilities under 100 MWs with an operating history of six or more years, partnering with Juhl provides the risk protection and financial certainty asset owners expect as their equipment moves into the second half of its projected useful life."

The joint venture operates under the Juhl Wind umbrella and is particularly focused on wind farm assets approaching its 10th year of operation, when the Production Tax Credit ("PTC") is about to expire and when equipment may require upgrades and a level of operating care that may not be available at the local level or by a large, conglomerate, absentee owner. Juhl also looks to acquire or become a partner on any projects where a local owner may be facing a "flip" and may prefer to have a partner, like Juhl, who understands the unique issues facing smaller wind farm assets.

"Industry data suggest that there is well over 6,000 MWs of wind farms under 50 MWs in size presently operating in North America and obviously a significant more amount available that exist under 100 MWs," added Corey Juhl, Vice President of Development at Juhl Wind. "This data underscores the tremendous scale of opportunity for both Juhl and 8030. Juhl's partnership with 8030 Companies allows us to expand our reach beyond the Midwest market and leverage Juhl's 25 years of experience in the wind industry to expand our services and balance sheet to operating assets and projects."

Juhl Wind, Inc. Announces Third Quarter 2012 Financial Results

PIPESTONE, Minn., Nov. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Juhl Wind Inc. (JUHL), the Leader in Community Wind Power, announced today their financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2012.

John Mitola, President of Juhl, commented, "Our third quarter results are the first to demonstrate the impact of wrapping our development business with a strong foundation of wind farm ownership and operation. In addition, the expansion of our advisory business with our acquisition of PEC underscores the strength of our strategy to become a more diversified clean energy company."

"While our core business will always center upon wind power development, ownership and operation, we have made great progress toward making a very natural progression into all forms of complementary clean energy. We are confident that all of our operating divisions can work extremely well together by drawing from our fundamental development skills while we move into other clean energy assets. While the entire wind industry has spent the first three quarters of the year fretting over the future of the PTC, it was more evident than ever that we had to diversify our business and that is exactly what we have done. We plan to take similar steps in the last part of 2012 and the beginning of 2013."

Financial Highlights for the Third Quarter Ended September 30, 2012

Diversification strategy to deliver sustainable growth outside of development fee revenue is gaining traction:
Wind Farm Ownership segment revenue increased by $4.25 million to $4.4 million as compared to $169,000 for the same period 2011.
Engineering Consulting Services segment contributed $2.2 million in additional revenue since the April 2012 acquisition.
Gross margins earned from our engineering consulting services and wind farm acquisitions increased $1.4 million from a year ago
The acquisition of Power Engineers Collaborative in April 2012 is now providing the Company with increased capabilities beyond wind and into the full range of clean energy sectors including natural gas, biomass, waste-to-energy, medium-to-large on-site solar, and support to larger wind farm construction.
We have increased our wind and solar development pipeline to over 420 MW, including acquiring the rights to develop a 4MW wind project for a municipal utility in Ohio, the advancement of a 10 to 20 MW project for a multi-national corporate off-taker (electricity purchaser), and were successful in signing a power purchase contract with another large, multi-national corporation for an on-site, wind project.
Total revenue decreased by approximately $995,000, or 30.5%, from approximately $3,259,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2011, to approximately $2,264,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2012. The decrease is primarily attributable to large development fee revenue recognized a year ago from the sale of a project, offset by approximately a $1,900,000 increase in engineering consulting and electricity sales from the effects of the acquisition of PEC in 2012 and three wind farm facilities in 2011. Total revenue decreased by approximately $5,588,000, or 51.1%, from approximately $10,937,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2011, to approximately $5,349,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 as we achieved high levels of development fee income in the prior year on project closings.

We decreased our operating loss in the third quarter by approximately $880,000, from an operating income of approximately $490,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2011 compared to operating loss of approximately $390,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2012, primarily attributable to the effects of the high margin development fee income recognized a year ago, offset by additional revenues and operating profit margins obtained from our acquisition activity.

For the quarter ended September 30, 2012, we incurred a net loss attributable to common stockholders of approximately $710,000, or $(0.03) per basic and diluted share, compared to net income attributable to common stockholders of approximately $156,000, or $0.01 per basic and diluted share in the year-ago period. For the nine month period ended September 30, 2012, we incurred a net loss attributable to common stockholders of approximately $2,465,000, or $(0.11) per basic and diluted share, compared to net income attributable to common stockholders of approximately $2,124,000, or $0.10 per basic and diluted share in the year-ago period.

A full analysis of results for the period ended September 30, 2012 is available in the Company's Form 10-Q, which is available on the Company's website at www.juhlwind.com or through the Securities and Exchange Commission's Edgar database.

Obama Campaign "Energy Tour" to Hold Press Conference at Juhl Wind Headquarters

PIPESTONE, Minn., Oct. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Juhl Wind, Inc.

On Monday, October 29th, former House Minority Leader Matthew Entenza will join Juhl Wind VP of Project Development Corey Juhl, VP of Operations Tyler Juhl and Juhl Wind President John Mitola to stress the importance of the extension of the Renewable Energy Federal Production Tax Credit (PTC) and President Obama's unwavering support of the clean energy sector.

"In my over 25 years in the energy business, I have never seen a more balanced approach to our nation's energy strategy than the Obama administration's," stated John Mitola, President of Juhl Wind. "We are very pleased to welcome Mr. Entenza to the Juhl Wind headquarters to further underscore the need for continued support of Renewable Energy, a critical component of our domestic renewable energy policy and a creator of new domestic job opportunities. We are proud of President Obama's strong ongoing support of the Renewable Energy industry and the need to continue to invest in our clean energy future. For anyone to solely attack the Renewable Energy PTC as a subsidy, they are simply ignoring the hundreds of billions of dollars in subsidies that have been provided to the nuclear, coal, gas and oil industries for decades and continue to this today – and, seemingly are never questioned."

Corey Juhl, Juhl Wind's VP of Project Development added, "We, and several other companies, have argued for Congress to immediately pass legislation to continue the Production Tax Credit for Renewable Energy so we can continue to develop projects that boost the economies of rural America and create real, sustainable jobs."

According to a report published on October 17th, 2012 by the American Wind Energy Association ("AWEA"), 2012 has been a record year for the development of wind power within the United States. The U.S. wind industry has surpassed 50,000 megawatts of electrical power generation capacity, with a total of 4,728 megawatts added this year alone and another 8,430 megawatts in active development throughout 29 states and Puerto Rico.

In addition, AWEA's U.S. Wind Industry Third Quarter 2012 Market Report found that; "the third quarter alone saw the installation of 1,833 megawatts of wind power across 15 states. The top adopter of new installations during the third quarter was Kansas, followed closely behind by Oregon, Texas, Oklahoma, and Nevada. With more than 40,000 wind turbines supplying 51,630 megawatts of renewable energy, the U.S. is now capable of powering some 13 million homes with wind energy alone. That's the equivalent of all of the homes in Michigan, Ohio, Iowa, Colorado, and Nevada."

Juhl Wind, Inc. to Power Minnesota Vikings' Home Games with 100% Renewable Energy Throughout the 2012-2013 Season

PIPESTONE, Minn., Sept. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Juhl Wind, Inc. (JUHL), the Leader in Community Wind Power is pleased to announce today that they are partnering with the Minnesota Vikings professional football team to provide renewable energy credits ("RECs"), generated by one of their operating wind energy facilities, to offset the electricity used at Mall of America Field at the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome for all Vikings' home games during the 2012-2013 season.

Starting with the Vikings first home game versus the Jacksonville Jaguars, Juhl Wind will provide a total of 520,000 kilowatt-hours of renewable energy over the course of the team's eight regular season home games, which is equal to approximately 507,520 pounds of CO2 emissions.

"The renewable energy produced will offset all of the electricity used throughout Mall of America Field— from the concession stands and ticket offices, to the field lighting and scoreboards making the Vikings one of the only NFL teams to play in a 100% green-powered facility during the entire 2012-2013 season," stated Corey Juhl, Vice President of Juhl Wind Inc.

Steve LaCroix, Vikings VP of Sales and Marketing and Chief Marketing Officer commented, "We are very pleased to partner with Juhl Wind on this renewable energy initiative for the stadium. The Minnesota Vikings are committed to becoming more environmentally friendly and utilizing renewable energy resources whenever possible. We certainly encourage other households and businesses in Minnesota to participate alongside us".

Renewable Energy Credits
Renewable energy facilities generate renewable energy credits (RECs) when they produce electricity. Purchasing these credits is the widely accepted way to reduce the environmental footprint of electricity consumption and help fund renewable energy development. Purchasing RECs at the same quantity as electricity consumption guarantees that the energy being used is added to the power grid from a renewable energy facility and supports the further development of these facilities.
