VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, Canada — Sharc International Systems Inc. (CSE: SHRC) (FSE: IWIA) (OTCQB: INTWF) (“SHARC” or “the Company”) is pleased to announce that the Company is to deploy a SHARC™ Energy Systems’ Piranha T10 Heating/Cooling system (“Piranha T10 HC”) into ELLA (“ELLA”), a new 45-unit residential development in Vancouver, BC, Canada.
Trillium Projects Management Ltd. (“TRILLIUM”) will oversee construction of ELLA on behalf of GN Holdings Limited Partnership (“GN HOLDINGS”). Ella is located at the corner of Grant and Nanaimo Streets in Vancouver’s Grandview-Woodland neighbourhood.
The Piranha T10 HC will provide all the domestic hot water and heating energy at a 500% efficiency recovered from the wastewater flow from the 45 suites and will provide air conditioning for the lobby and common areas of the building. The Piranha T10 HC uses the very same energy every day and the cycle of use and re-use goes on in perpetuity within the building, saving the occupants money while reducing their carbon footprint by more than 50 tonnes of CO2 per year.
Province of British Columbia’s Ministry of Energy Mines and Petroleum Resources has granted an exemption to ELLA through an application process of the CleanBC Commercial New Construction Program (“CleanBC”). Construction projects like ELLA that choose to save energy and lower greenhouse gas emissions, may apply for assistance under CleanBC, which is funded by the Province of British Columbia and the Government of Canada under the Low Carbon Economy Leadership Fund.
Matt Ilich, Vice President Development at GN Holdings, commented, “We are extremely proud and excited to introduce the Piranha into ELLA as a near net zero building into our portfolio of developments, and we expect the SHARC systems to become widely adopted by the development and construction community.”
Lynn Mueller, CEO, SHARC Energy Systems, commented, “We are very excited to be working with Trillium and with the deployment of the SHARC energy system at ELLA, the management team at Trillium embraced the idea seeing immediate benefit for the new homeowners and to the environment.”
