Powergen Plc to Review Website Security

“We take security of customer information extremely seriously and I am sorry that this has happened and that customers may have been inconvenienced,” said Mike Wagner, Powergen retail managing director. “The website was immediately closed down and our systems experts confirmed that this was a one-off incident. Initial investigations showed that the information which had been accessed was in a file which due to a technical error was temporarily outside of the security gate of the system. This was immediately corrected and new procedures introduced to eliminate the possibility of it happening again. There was no breach of the security of our main customer database.

WASHINGTON–A three-story, 140 room La Quinta Inn and Suites hotel north of the Dallas/Ft. Worth airport has become what is believed to be the first hotel in the nation to install a microturbine to generate its own electricity. During the trial run of what is a one-year test program between La Quinta and TXU Energy Services, the microturbine enabled the hotel to cut its peak demand on the electricity grid by 63 percent.
