Niagara Falls, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – April 25, 2019) – EHT Ag Tech (TSXV: EHT) (“EHTAg”) which is the sales and marketing division of EnerDynamic Hybrid Technologies Corp (TSXV:EHT) (“EHT”) and Growratio are pleased to announce they are in the final stages of completing an application for a federal cultivation licence for a state of the art medical cannabis production facility.
The license will allow for the cultivation of up to 15,000kg of cannabis per year, which will be rolled out in 3 phases of 5000kg each. EHTAg, has signed a contract with a local partner to facilitate relationships with academic intuitions, industry, government and municipal partners to ensure the process is completed as smoothly as possible.
With the superior technology and industry knowledge available to EHTAg through its partners, the facility will be the first of its kind globally. The patented design of the cultivation units will ensure that cross-contamination is eliminated, reducing the need for pesticides and other chemicals, which is critical to meet the stringent standards required for downstream medical and wellness product manufacturers both in Canada and abroad. Growratio’s proprietary lighting, control, and cloud AI systems will ensure the delivery of the precise environments and processes required for optimizing production, reducing costs, and maximizing quality. Furthermore, the facility will eliminate exorbitant energy costs by operating completely off-grid, allowing for the preservation of attractive profit margins.
EHTAg, once licenced with all units operational, will expect gross revenues of up to $75M per year at a price of $5000 per kg of premium medical cannabis.
“We are excited to be ushering in the future of cannabis cultivation in Canada. “said Paolo Pincente, CEO of Growratio. “We are now beginning to see the problems inherent with traditional methods of cultivation – massive crop losses, contamination, low quality product, runaway costs – the solution is our integrated technologies.”
John Gamble, CEO of EHT, commented “We are very pleased to announce this milestone using our ENERTEC products and working with Growratio to give our shareholders value.”
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.
