Enertopia Corporation (“Enertopia” or the “Company”) a company focused on building shareholder value through a combination of our Nevada Lithium claims, intellectual property & patents in the green technology space, is pleased to provide the following update.
Our Provisional patent # 3 will now be known as the ENERTOPIA RAINMAKERTM.
Now that we have filed our three provisional patents, we have moved into the monitoring phase of testing with the ENERTOPIA HEAT EXTRACTORTM. The Company is concurrently using a 3rd party private monitoring system to validate its ability to run bug-free and provide uninterrupted data under extreme heat environments as the above monitoring continues.
We expect to complete the monitoring of the rooftop, loose coupled, ENERTOPIA HEAT EXTRACTORTM for residential use by the end of October 2021. These results will verify the increased PV output, increased hot water output, and the decreased internal home cooling costs. In the meantime, we are sourcing materials now for expected residential installs with a planned start date by the end of the calendar year 2021.
Our monitoring program is currently ongoing at the multi-MW solar array and is being run concurrently using a 3rd party private monitoring system to validate its ability to run bug-free and provide uninterrupted data under extreme heat environments as the above monitoring continues. We expect to have a report from the 3rd party engineering firm in the coming weeks.
This report will use the real-time data that has been collected from the solar array, showing the loss of PV output due to excessive panel heating. Also expected is a positive increase in PV output and the projected extended life of the PV panels due to the use of the ENERTOPIA SOLAR BOOSTERTM. This testing is expected to confirm our internal analysis of the energy creation and added benefit of PV panel cooling, the results of which are lowered panel heat stress, which in turn increases the effective life cycle of the panels.
By being able to quantify the increased clean energy output and offsetting CO2 credits, we will then be able to provide an update on the potential value of CO2 credits going forward. We believe the company will be able to monetize the increased savings via CO2 carbon credits as part of the testing via the 3rd party monitoring system. Five years ago these credits resulted in upfront payments of roughly $1,000,000 dollars per Mw based on predefined operating contracts in the industry. These rates have doubled over the past five years and industry forecasts based on current government approved increases over the rest of this decade indicate these numbers could increase by a factor of five times from current levels based on International Monetary Fund (IMF) forecasting $75, Wood Mackenzie $110 and International Energy Association $120 per tonne of CO2 needed for the World to reach the 2030 Paris climate accord agreement.
Clayton Valley Project Update:
The company is currently awaiting quotes on a potential drilling program in order to provide a bulk sample of material for further development work. This would allow us to advance our lithium claystone project with a small-scale pilot plant located offsite, which is now being reviewed.
“We recommend all stakeholders visit our investor page for an updated presentation on the exciting opportunity this next chapter brings as Enertopia continues to move forward.” Stated CEO Robert McAllister “Enertopia has made great strides in the last year by continuing to develop our Nevada lithium property while expanding into Green Technology, which has resulted in several opportunities that we continue to investigate in improving mining and society at the same time.”
We continue to believe that the Lithium hosted claystone deposits in Nevada will become major sources of Lithium production in the 2020s while offering the United States a secure domestic supply of battery grade Lithium products. We are also excited to see and witness the convergence of several technologies that are changing the very way we produce and consume electrical energy amidst the growing opportunities for a better world.
A Company focused on using modern technology on extracting lithium and verifying or sourcing other intellectual property in the EV & green technologies to build shareholder value.
