POWTEC Solutions, LLC is a subsidiary of POWTEC Holding Company, LLC. The U.S. based company is owned by two Native American tribes, the Craig Tribal Association (CTA) and the Organized Village of Kasaan (OVK) based in Southeast Alaska. They became certified in 2013 by the Small Business Administration (SBA) as an 8(a) Small Disadvantaged Business (SDB), which provides advantages that allows them to be more competitive when seeking out federal contracts totaling $20M and less. They can also form joint ventures and teams to bid on contracts and enhance their ability to successfully secure larger prime contracts. Combined with GB Energie LED, a woman-owned minority business, the companies are in a unique position to successfully address federal energy efficiency contracts.

The companies look to address lighting retrofit opportunities, installing Revolution Lighting's high performance LED solutions to reduce lighting energy use by more than 65%, while increasing light output. LED lighting lasts three times longer than conventional fluorescent lighting, and combined with Revolution Lighting's market-leading 10-year warranty, provide significant long-term operational and maintenance cost saving.

"We're pleased to partner with POWTEC Solutions to aggressively pursue and secure high value federal energy efficiency contracts, particularly with LED lighting components," said Dr. Gloria B. Herndon, President and CEO of GB Energie LED. "We believe the combination of POWTEC's experience as a tribal 8(a) company, and our comprehensive energy efficiency services creates significant revenue opportunities among federal based contracts."

"There is a significant need throughout our Native American communities for more efficient technologies that will reduce both energy use and cost," said Felix McGowan, Business Development Manager, POWTEC. "We believe GB Energie LED is a terrific partner for us due to their expertise in the implementation of high-quality LED solutions, and together, we are well positioned to secure significant federal contracts."

As part of this partnership, the companies also will be giving back to Native American and minority communities through multiple initiatives, including rebates for contractors and opportunities for training initiatives to teach proper LED installation and maintenance that lead to skilled jobs for Native American and minority community members.
