Eco-Shift Power Corp. (OTCQB: ECOP) Announces Agreement to Retrofit Cambridge Hockey Arena Complex

CAMBRIDGE, ON--(Marketwired - September 16, 2014) - Eco-Shift Power Corp. (OTCQB: ECOP), one of Canada's leading energy management and lighting firms, has been awarded a contract to retrofit the Cambridge Ice Centre sports facility with ECOP's proprietary LED high bay lighting fixtures. ECOP is a preferred lighting solutions provider for sporting facilities with the ability to provide high quality and efficient lighting, with control capabilities, at competitive pricing. ECOP will install its low cost, high efficiency LED high bay as it has the ability to meet the strict lighting requirements of a sporting facility. The market interest for ECOP's LED high bay is increasing significantly given the competitive MSRP of $460 (210W) which allows for a remarkably fast payback period compared to the competition.

The Cambridge Ice Centre LED lighting retrofit will result in an impressive financial energy savings of 61%. The ice rink will be retrofitted with High Efficient 375W LED Highbay Luminaires with an extended life of 100,000 hours (L70), with motion sensing capabilities and an ability to be controlled by ECOP's Light Management System. The project has an extremely impressive Return on Investment (ROI) of only 1 year, after which the project becomes cash flow positive. The project generates significant savings that can be used for programs or to make further facility improvements.

"Recently we've had a number of sporting facilities interested in our new high bay products because of their ability to reach impressive output levels while remaining highly efficient," says ECOP's CEO Gib Wood. ECOP targets the sports facility market due to their ability to deliver specialty lights that meet the demanding requirements of sport facility lighting. The improved light levels also open up opportunities for televised events, with the potential to bring in further revenue through broader recognition. "Being a huge hockey fan with coaching experience, I understand the importance of having quality lighting within the arena. It helps both the players and the spectators to enjoy the experience that much more," says Wood. The Cambridge Ice Centre will be the 8th sporting facility retrofit by ECOP, and already the second facility this month.

The high-efficiency LED Retrofit Project will generate nearly $200,000 in energy and maintenance savings over 10 years. The energy savings, predicted to be around 110,746 kWh each year, is equal to the annual greenhouse gas emissions from over 16 passenger vehicles or CO2 emissions from 8,593 gallons of gasoline consumed.

A Turn-Key Solution from lighting industry experts: ECOP manages every aspect of a lighting retrofit project from lighting audits to product sourcing (complete with Net Zero Certification) to Installation. Ongoing maintenance, servicing and full back-office support are added benefits available to clients.

ECOP has recently announced the launch of its revolutionary Highbay LED solution that seamlessly integrates with ECOP's Wireless Light Management System and available Demand Response capabilities. It has the potential to reduce lighting-related energy consumption by up to 75%, and will be virtually maintenance free for the life of the product.

ECOP provides clients with high-tech lighting products, smart wireless energy management technologies, and various solutions to reduce operating costs associated with maintenance and energy consumption. With a foundation in the new-era of LED Lighting and Wireless & Web-enabled technologies, ECOP is transitioning clients from obsolete and immobile technology to the new information age.
