Bluon Energy Announces Senior Management Changes in Tandem with Roll-Out of its Fully Integrated Product + Services Solution

Peter Capuciati, Founder and Chairman of Bluon Energy, is taking on the CEO role to lead Bluon through its next phase of growth

SACRAMENTO, CA – September 24, 2018 – Bluon Energy, creator of Bluon TdX 20 (R-458A) – the only complete solution for upgrading existing HVAC-R systems running R-22 – announced today that Peter Capuciati, Bluon’s Founder and Chairman, will be assuming the CEO role effective immediately. Douglas Reinke who had been President & CEO of Bluon for the past three years will be departing to pursue new opportunities. This seamless transition of leadership comes at a time when the refrigerant known as R-22, which remains the lifeblood of over 60% of existing HVAC systems in the U.S. and worldwide, is fast becoming obsolete and unavailable due to a global phase-out and related federal regulations.

As CEO, Mr. Capuciati is broadening his prior role as the company’s Executive Chairman where he has been the architect behind Bluon’s unique business strategy which focuses on providing a complete solution to the R-22 phase out and the enormous challenge it is about to place on the $1 trillion worth of existing HVAC infrastructure that depends on R-22 in the U.S. alone.

“I am excited to expand my role and lead Bluon Energy through this exciting time of change in the refrigerant industry,” said Mr. Capuciati. “Bluon is ideally positioned to help contractors and end-users navigate this challenging time by providing them a solution that not only solves the problem but adds substantial value to all parties while doing so. This includes our newly-launched mobile app that gives technicians in the field, for the first time, a comprehensive guide to solving this challenge.”

Bluon Energy has evolved into a comprehensive solution provider, combining its revolutionary refrigerant TdX 20 (R-458A) with a full suite of world class installation tools and technology-enabled resources for the technicians in the field and turnkey installation services for end-users allowing them to optimize their existing HVAC systems. Unlike other R-22 replacements, Bluon’s proprietary TdX 20 (R-458A) is the only replacement that actually increases the efficiency and performance of existing HVAC equipment. In addition to its product offering, Bluon is leading the way in with its comprehensive training and tech-based solutions for technicians in the field such as the industry-first Bluon mobile app and online contractor accreditation program.
