Vancouver, BC. December 15, 2014, Smartcool Systems Inc. (TSX-V: SSC) is pleased to report that Total Energy Concepts (TEC) has successfully installed Smartcool's ECO3 technology in 20 auto dealerships across the United States. With a growing concern about GHG (Green House Gas) emissions due to inefficient building operating systems, more and more businesses are looking to cut their energy consumption. Total Energy Concepts has been delivering a suite of efficiency technologies to a variety of multi-location retail, commercial and industrial businesses across the U.S. and are successfully cutting operating costs by significantly reducing in energy consumption.
Doug Overvold; President of TEC, states "TEC has put together a number of complementary technologies to deliver the business consumer a holistic approach to energy reduction. In addition to reduced energy costs, the end result is a major reduction of GHG emissions. Smartcool is an important part of the mix for achieving this success. Car dealerships represent a unique opportunity for our company. As they are generally standalone facilities with substantial indoor spaces for both the showroom and service areas, cooling requirements are quite large. Smartcool's technology has provided significant benefits on all of the installations that we completed to date."
With over 50,000 new and used car dealerships in the US, Smartcool sees a large new market vertical for its products. The average dealership has over 10 rooftop air handlers each requiring an ECO3 unit. With proven savings of 18% - 25%, the financial benefits are extremely compelling to car dealers.
Chris Lefaivre, VP of Operations at Smartcool, comments "TEC has been a great partner for Smartcool, aggressively pursuing a number of vertical markets such as auto dealerships. We are working very closely with the TEC team to help them achieve greater success for our mutual benefit. The reduction in energy costs and reduced GHG emissions for the auto dealer customer is truly a win-win-win for all parties."
