Hudson Energy Teams up with Choose Energy’s Online Energy Marketplace to Offer Competitive Electricity Plans to Texans

DALLAS – August 28, 2007 – Hudson Energy Services has joined Choose Energy (http://www.chooseenergy.com/), a division of Amen Properties (NASDAQ: AMEN), to offer consumers additional choices of competitive electricity plans and savings to better serve their needs.

Choose Energy’s recently updated Web site (http://www.chooseenergy.com/) sets it apart from other listing sites such as Texas Electric Choice Web site (http://www.powertochoose.org/) by enabling customers to easily compare offers and sign up without leaving its site.

“Choose Energy’s Web site functions uniquely as an unbiased researcher to provide consumers with a wide range of electricity plans that are comparable in real-time market conditions,” said Deryl Brown, CEO of Hudson. “As we build our business in Texas, we are always looking for more ways to conveniently provide business and residential customers with our competitive options, and the Choose Energy site meets our needs completely.”

“We are very pleased to have Hudson team up with us to offer consumers more plan options on the site,” stated Jerry Dyess, general manager of Choose Energy. “We share the same business focus of consumer convenience and hassle-free switching, so I knew we would work well together.”

“Many people only begin thinking about switching electricity providers during the hot, summer months when their bill hits its peak,” said Dyess. “As we begin transitioning into the new fall season, it’s an ever better time for customers to re-evaluate their electricity plans, so they can lock in lower fall rates and start saving money all year long.”

Choose Energy also now enables business customers to select from one of three secure ways to receive bids for their business. They can provide basic information about their business online and receive electricity rate comparisons and sign up online; they may fill out a simple online form and request a Choose Energy consultant to contact them; or, they may call and speak with a representative.
