Smartcool Announces Sale to Central England Co-Operative

Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - July 12, 2022) - Smartcool Systems Inc. (TSXV: SSC.H) (OTC Pink: SSCFF) ("Smartcool" or the Company") is pleased to announce that its subsidiary in the UK has received Purchase Orders from Central England Co-operative (Co-op) for installation of proprietary Smartcool™ ECO3™ at 68 Co-op sites. The project includes installing the Company's optimization technology on 120 heat pumps. While most of the Heat Pumps are manufactured by Mitsubishi, the technology will also be applied on Daikin, Fujitsu and Toshiba units.

This initial project is proceeding after an extensive test period of 6 months over 4 sites. The results achieved confirmed savings of over 25% in kWh consumption compared to normal operations. Co-op anticipates annual savings of greater than 860,000 kWh resulting in a simple payback of less than 3 years not including tax benefits.

CEO Ted Konyi commented, "this initial project, to be completed over the next 2 months, will assist Co-op in reducing operating costs and meeting ESG and Carbon Footprint reduction targets. The Company is currently in discussions with the Co-op Group about further installations across their 7,000-site estate. A tremendous effort was put forward by the team in the UK, headed by Steven Martin and working closely with Peter Marshall. We look forward to providing our technology in many more Co-op sites."

Kevin Collins, Head of Facilities and Technical Services at Co-op, said "After reviewing all the energy data, it was clear that Smartcool™ was very effective in reducing kWh whilst maintaining temperature. This initial project will be part of the Co-op's ongoing commitment to reducing our Carbon Footprint. We are looking forward to working with Smartcool to complete these installations by mid-summer."
