EHT Management is enroute to Africa to assess the readiness of site infrastructure in Burkina Faso prior to commencing shipment of model home units associated with the order for ENERTEC units announced on July 19, 2018. Fabrication is expected to increase, as previously indicated, over this fall period as the production capacity comes back on line following the relocation and redesign noted above. In Ivory Coast, management will be doing similar site inspections to determine a timeframe to commence order processing. Finally, in Ghana, management is meeting with government representatives to set a final timeline and details related to the contract announced September 10, 2018.
The Company currently holds order deposits on projects in Ghana and Puerto Rico and expects to receive similar deposits, consistent with Company policy, related to the Burkina Faso, Ivory Coast and Arizona projects in this quarter and the first quarter of fiscal 2019.

We have virtually completed the move and have realized benefit by utilizing the opportunity to assess every process/workflow and made changes where advantageous to do so.” Mr. Gamble further commented that, “This trip to Africa is born out of experience; we wish to see first hand that all is ready to commence filling various orders. We need sites that have a poured concrete pads and water/sewer hookups in order to install our ENERTEC homes properly.”

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.
