Niagara Falls, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - January 24, 2019) - EnerDynamic Hybrid Technologies Corp. (TSXV: EHT) ("EHT") is pleased to announce it has signed an agreement with the Government of Ghana and its Ministry of Works and Housing to supply up to 100,000 rooftop solar systems under the United Nations OPS program.
This order is part of the Government of Ghana's Building of Social Green Housing initiative that is at the forefront of the Government's Solar program in conjunction with the United Nations. This is a priority infrastructure project for the Ghanian Government.
The UN program will start in the 2nd quarter of this year and will continue over the next 5 years. EHT will supply 3Kw to 5Kw solar systems to the project depending on the homes requirements. The 3kw system including panels, inverter and 2 batteries will cost approximately $6000 US with the 5Kw system including panels, inverters and 4 batteries will cost approximately $10,000 US.
John Gamble, CEO of EHT, commented that "We have been working with the Ghanian Ministry of Works and Housing on this project for a number of months and we are very excited to get this project moving and helping the people of Ghana."
About EnerDynamic Hybrid Technologies
EHT delivers proprietary, turn-key energy solutions which are intelligent, bankable and sustainable. EHT's expertise includes the development of its ENERTEC module structures with full integration of smart energy solutions. Using a proprietary skin and foam core that is stronger than traditional wood or steel structural insulated panels, EHT provides exceptional thermal energy efficiency in modular homes, cold storage facilities, residential/commercial out buildings and emergency/temporary shelters. EHT works with its partners worldwide to erect the buildings on-site utilizing EHT staff and local crews. In addition to traditional support to established electrical networks, ENERTEC buildings excel where no electrical grid exists.
The EHT advanced ENERTEC Modular Wall and Roof System uses a proprietary skin and foam core that is stronger and more energy efficient than traditional wood or steel structures providing the highest ratings for energy efficiency. EHT works with its partners worldwide to erect the buildings on-site utilizing EHT staff and local crews. After installation, each structure can be furnished and finished to meet the customer's requirements including siding, tile, kitchens and bathrooms or segregated commercial rooms. The finished wall product can be shipped on pallets and delivered via rail, truck or water in standard formats.
At the core of the ENERTEC product line is the ENERTEC Embedded Solar Roof Module. Solar cells can be embedded in a proprietary fire proof skin resulting in substantial cost savings by eliminating heavy glass panels and aluminum racking required for traditional solar panels. Two barriers to greater adoption of solar energy are weight limitations of the roof on which solar panels could be deployed and onerous shipping and labour costs. A lighter product at a better price point will open a larger market for solar due to the faster return of capital investment especially for rural and remote users looking to go off-grid. Furthermore, the entire EHT embedded solar roof becomes a massive solar panel capable of producing significantly more energy than the home requires, allowing the structure to then become an important source of power for the local micro grid or large battery storage systems.
