SHARC International Introduces Mass Market MAKO System
Award-winning waste water heat exchange system now available for individual homes
Vancouver – (March 13, 2018) – SHARC International Systems Inc. (CSE: SHRC) (FSE: IWIA) (OTCQB: INTWF) (“SHARC” or “the Company”), is pleased to announce it has completed the design and fabrication of the MAKO™ waste water heat exchange system. The system is currently undergoing testing at a single detached home in Vancouver, British Columbia.
The MAKO is the residential version of the award-winning SHARC energy system that until now has only been available to provide heating, cooling, and hot water for large-scale projects such as college campuses and high-rise apartment buildings.
The MAKO meets LEED® Canada for Homes criteria, is easily installed in new and retrofit projects. The MAKO will provide families with immediate and long-term energy savings and carbon reduction, and is expected to qualify for the Government of Canada’s clean technology investment program.
The average Vancouver household spends approximately $1,550.00 per year on thermal energy that can be recovered by the MAKO. The estimated operating cost for the MAKO is $350.00 per year, while it delivers annual savings of approximately $1,200.00, paying for itself in less than four years.
As more people around the world install the MAKO, it will cut GHG emissions significantly, offsetting an estimated three to four tonnes of CO2 emissions per year for each household. The MAKO can also be tied to a home’s solar electric system allowing families to gain energy independence with an off-grid system.
“SHARC is continuously driving innovation and finding ways to help clients reduce their energy bill and carbon footprint,” said SHARC CEO Lynn Mueller. “In a very short time, SHARC has extended its reach from district networks all the way down to single detached dwellings, increasing its customer base and importantly for all, having a significant global impact on reducing carbon emissions. Our bigger systems, the SHARC™ and PIRANHA™, are now recognized as mainstream technology; the time has come for the widespread adoption of the MAKO.”
The Company also announces the issuance of 300,000 stock options at $0.36 to directors, management, and consultants of the Company for a term of twelve (12) months.
