KELOWNA, BRITISH COLUMBIA–(Marketwired – April 15, 2016) – SUNVAULT ENERGY INC. (OTC PINK:SVLT) (“Sunvault”) (“the Company”) (SVLT) and Slatchinum Development (“SDC”), announced today that they have secured $3 Million in equity financing for the first phase of the development which includes the underground and above ground works including the electrical work for the 200 home subdivision in Kelowna, BC.
“The ground work has started and the company is in discussions with builders to produce the quality of home necessary to give the homeowner the highest quality home at the best possible price,” stated Gary Monaghan Sunvault Energy’s Chief Executive Officer. This community is Canada’s first self sustainable community and British Columbia’s largest solar development.
Custom Built Homes in the community are to be sold to the owners and the land will be leased for 49-years with an option for a second 49 years. Taking the land cost out of the final price will allow for a retail price of a home to be in the $180,000 – $300,000 range for 1200 – 1600 square feet of living space. The homes will be built to the highest environmental standard for efficiency so that they receive LEED® certification. The company has identified two local prefab home builders that can build these highly efficient custom homes at a rate of approx. 4 homes per day.
In the last year there has been a considerable amount of discussion made popular by the Tesla Company regarding their Powerwall product. In recent weeks they released press that the 10kWh battery will not be going ahead for home storage. The release stated that Tesla has pulled its 10 kilowatt Powerwall device, leaving only its 6.4 kWh battery listed for sale.
The Edison Power Company plans to launch as part of this self sustaining green renewable project their Edison Always On Energy Bank Storage System. The energy storage unit chosen will be the Edison 12kWh model using their Graphene Electrical Energy Storage Device (“EESD”) technology. This energy storage technology will provide homeowners with reliable energy storage from the renewable energy generation in the development, making each home capable of being truly self-reliant and sustaining. Each home will have Solar Generation and the Edison Always On Energy Bank Storage System installed.
The Community centre for the development project will also be powered by Solar and Energy stored in the Always On Energy Bank that Edison is contributing to the development. It should also be mentioned that the anaerobic digester installation will deal with organic wastes within the project to enhance the amount of power produced and used by the development. At this time the plan is to utilize the energy specifically for the home owners needs and not for resale to the power grid.
Sunvault plans to continue its expansion in Green Renewable Energy technology, bringing all it has in the vault and contributing to areas where these technology choices are guaranteed to be utilized, maximized and monetized.
