Capstone CEO Darren Jamison Interviewed on Popular Science Radio on August 15, 2015

CHATSWORTH, Calif., Aug. 19, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Darren R. Jamison, the President and Chief Executive Officer of Capstone Turbine Corporation (www.capstoneturbine.com) (Nasdaq:CPST), the world's leading clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, was interviewed on Popular Science Radio on August 15, 2015.

During the interview, Mr. Jamison spoke about the advantages of the Company's microturbine technology as a source of clean energy and a way for businesses to both lower their operating costs and reduce emissions. He began by describing the deployment of a Capstone microturbine array on California's Catalina Island, resulting in financial savings and a cleaner environment. He continued by describing the advantages of microturbine technology more generally, detailing its low price and high efficiency, as well as its ability to run on a variety of fuels and to operate with very little maintenance for long periods because of the microturbine's unique design. Mr. Jamison compared the microturbine technology to what happened in the airline industry that migrated from pistons and propellers to jets for lower emission and higher reliability.

"I am very pleased that Popular Science Radio is interested in the disruptive Capstone technology. It is another indication of the spread in consumer consciousness that buying electric and thermal energy from the local utility, the way your parents and grandparents did, may not make sense in today's challenging global economy," said Mr. Jamison. "People are waking up to the fact that they need to find a better way to manage energy costs and lower emissions without sacrificing reliability. This growing awareness is driving an increased interest in our combined heat and power (CHP) business, as energy efficiency awareness continues to grow worldwide and is the catalyst behind our distribution channel committing to add 100 new sales people before the end of the year," added Jamison.
