Jan Blittersdorf Named CEO of NRG

Hinesburg, VT--Jan Blittersdorf, former vice president and chief financial
officer for NRG Systems, has been named president and chief executive
officer of the Hinesburg company. As president/CEO, Jan concentrates on
overall company management and strategy development, helping to determine
NRG's role in the global wind energy industry. Jan replaces David
Blittersdorf, founder and former president of NRG Systems, as CEO. David
will concentrate on product engineering and design as director of
engineering.
Jan officially joined NRG Systems in 1987, focusing on the operational and
financial side of the business. As the company grew, Jan took over the
human resources function of NRG. She developed a hiring process that
matches prospective employees with NRG's corporate culture. She also
designed an employee benefits program and incentive program that includes
a monthly cash profit sharing plan, paid sabbatical and other perks. Her
emphasis on financial integrity and workplace quality has been rewarded by
a loyal, highly motivated 43-person team, which is expected to more than
double in five years.
NRG's recently completed manufacturing facility and office building, a
model in sustainable design and energy efficiency, will accommodate the
company's expected growth and provide employees a healthier work
environment. Jan's success in fostering company growth and managing NRG's
financial prosperity was instrumental in its selection as a Deane C. Davis

New England 2003 Exporter of the Year.

Responsibility (VBSR), is a board member of the Child Care Fund of Vermont
