Smartcool Announces New Distributor Based in Kentucky

Installs ECO3 at Two Facilities Owned by a Large Forestry Company in the Appalachian Region

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - May 24, 2016) -  Smartcool Systems Inc. (TSX VENTURE: SSC) (OTCQB: SSCFF) is pleased to announce the addition of a new distributor; EESI Global of Lexington, KY (http://eesiglobal.com) a division of IKIO (http://ikioledlighting.com/), to its growing U.S. Distribution network. EESI Global is an industry leading energy consultant and service company providing electrical energy conservation technologies to businesses of all types and sizes. IKIO is a global provider of LED lighting products with offices in the USA, India, China and the United Kingdom.

EESI Global has begun to sell Smartcool's ECO3 product in order to optimize the performance of the air conditioning, refrigeration and heat pumps systems of their commercial and industrial customers. The first projects were at two facilities owned by a large forestry company in the Appalachian region. Smartcool provided training and assistance in the installation of the ECO3 on the HVAC systems at these locations. EESI Global is expected to leverage the success of this initial project to other facilities owned by the customer in the western U.S. later in 2016.

Greg Carr; Director - Solution Development at EESI Global, states, "The Smartcool ECO3 is an excellent product that augments the value proposition being delivered by our suite of energy conservation technologies. We were impressed with the return on investment that we were able to offer to our initial customer even though they were paying a low industrial rate for their electricity."

Chris Lefaivre; Smartcool's EVP for North America, states, "We are thrilled to be working with a best of class partner like EESI Global and we are looking forward to continuing to collaborate to deliver benefits or our technology to their end use customers across the United States."
