Smartcool Systems Inc. Announces Jamaican Partnership and Multiple Jamaican Installations

Monday, 21 August 2017     

Vancouver, B.C. August 21, 2017, Smartcool Systems Inc. (TSXV: SSC OTC: SSCFF) is pleased to announce today a joint venture partnership with Alternative Power Sources Limited (“APS”) in Jamaica. The partnership was formed to facilitate the installations of Smartcool technology for commercial customers in Jamaica. APS is the premier supplier of commercial solar panels and related products in Jamaica and has operations in a number of the Caribbean islands. After completing several Smartcool installations, APS became convinced that Smartcool’s technology could have widespread applications in the Caribbean. Frank Lawrence, who joined the Smartcool team earlier this year, originally introduced APS to the product when Frank was acting as a distributor. Frank now heads up Smartcool’s direct sales strategy in the Caribbean.

Damian Lyn, CEO, Alternative Power Sources said, "We have been providing turnkey solar installations in Jamaica and other Caribbean islands for 14 years. With the very high cost of electricity, large commercial customers are looking for alternatives to grid power. These very same clients are also interested in other energy efficiency technologies and Smartcool represents a substantial opportunity to further reduce costs and carbon footprint. We look forward to assisting Smartcool in providing installation services and referrals to our existing client base of satisfied customers."

Frank Lawrence, Smartcool’s Sales Director said, "Working with Damian and his staff at APS has been a pleasure. Initial client introductions have gone very well, making it clear that Damian and his people have developed great relationships. These introductions have led to the completion last week of three installations, including a large food processor and distributor, a major fast food franchise operation and a grocery store. Currently there are 8 accepted proposals for Smartcool installations in Jamaica including a number of multi- location hotels and resorts. With high ambient temperatures and high utility rates, the opportunity for significant monetary savings in Jamaica and the Caribbean is substantial."
