Sponsored by Businesswire

Vortex Brands Co. (USOTC:VTXB)
announced today that the company is preparing for a pilot program in
Detroit Michigan.

CEO Todd Higley stated, “We are pleased to announce that we are meeting
with a group of energy experts next week that have mapped out 30
locations at large industrial facilities in Detroit that will serve as
locations for a mass pilot installation. This team will manage the
installation and monitor the results closely once the units are in
place. This team will also help to facilitate contracted revenue
agreements based on overall results.”

Mr. Higley continued with, “We are also in negotiations with a joint
venture partner who has exclusive technology focused on reducing the
end-user energy requirements. Our PAS technology will serve as an
enhancement to their offering. There are applications with their product
that may be implemented as part of the Detroit project.”

Mr. Higley finished up with, “This week we will also be interviewing an
additional board member who has experience creating value for end-users
through various state laws related to carbon reduction and energy
efficiency. We are pretty confident that he will be joining us and will
make a formal announcement on his appointment in the coming weeks.”

About Vortex Brands Co.

Vortex Brands Co., under the dba Vortex Green Energy will provide as a
service multipurpose Phase Angle Synchronization (PAS) equipment to
electric utilities nationwide. PAS is a one-of-a-kind technology
designed to address a one-hundred-year-old inherent problem that was
thought to be unsolvable: the inefficient power consumption caused by
electric motors. Improving consumption efficiency will extend the life
of the grid by protecting it from excessive wear and damage, improve
grid reliability by reducing line congestion and increasing reserve
margin, while creating true cost savings for the utility at no cost for
the equipment. Instead, revenue is generated under a Share-of-Savings
business model wherein the utility shares the savings with Vortex
created by the PAS service on a monthly basis. PAS is designed to
address industrial and commercial use applications in a scalable
solution where the majority of wasted electricity occurs, and the
largest opportunity exists. Clients of the utility benefit from
progressing toward carbon footprint reduction goals without the capital
expense or investing in any new equipment. Operations initially are
focused in California before expanding nationwide. For more information
