NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Oct 11, 2012) - (Marketwire-10/11/2012) SunSi Energies Inc. ("SunSi") (OTCQB: SSIED) (OTCQB: SSIE), an international manufacturer, seller and distributor of energy products and solutions, today announced it has entered into an agreement with one of the largest private hospital groups in the U.S. to conduct a trial of SunSi's Lightsky LED lighting products at one of its facilities in the Midwest. The private hospital group, with over 300 combined hospitals and clinic locations and generating multi-billions in revenue, is committed to making changes toward sustainability and energy saving by reducing its electricity consumption. A light emitting diode ("LED") is a semiconductor device which converts electricity into light. LED lights are considered a "green energy source" due to the absence of dangerous chemicals like mercury and their significant reduction in energy consumption within various applications.
Upon completion of the trial period, the hospital group will assess energy savings results and determine the level of deployment of Lightsky's products to its facilities. The LED trial was negotiated by SunSi Lightsky's sub-distributor Global Resource Group, Inc., a well-established Texas based company with an excellent track record and history of the distribution and sales of products to multi-location, high profile mega retailers such as Wal-Mart and Costco.
Richard St-Julien, SunSi's Chairman, stated, "This represents an enormous opportunity for SunSi to demonstrate the energy savings capabilities of our Lightsky LED product line in the hospital industry. We are excited about the future potential revenue streams for our LED segment. The interest level and progress we've achieved in the short period of time since we acquired exclusive LED rights for the major North America territories, has exceeded our expectations."
About SunSi Energies Inc.
SunSi Energies is a global company whose products and solutions focus on renewable energy and improved energy efficiency. SunSi's subsidiary, TransPacific Energy Inc. ("TPE") has patented a technology which uses proprietary multiple component fluids that are environmentally sound, non-toxic and non-flammable. Custom formulated mixtures efficiently capture and convert heat directly from the heat source at temperatures ranging from 80° F to 1000° F. TPE's technology offers applications at broader temperature ranges than other energy recovery systems. TPE's systems in certain applications reduce operating and maintenance costs thereby significantly improving return on capital expenditures thus making the purchase of waste heat recovery systems which previously yielded nominal savings, economically viable.
SunSi is the exclusive distributor in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico of Light Emitting Diode ("LED") commercial lighting products and fixtures for a premier LED manufacturer, Lightsky. An LED is a semiconductor device which converts electricity into light. The LED light is considered "green" because of the absence of dangerous chemicals and an accompanying significant reduction in energy consumption depending on the application, from 50% to 70% of traditional lighting products.
SunSi, is also a significant manufacturer and distributor of trichlorosilane ("TCS") in China. TCS is a specialty chemical primarily used in the production of polysilicon, which is an essential raw material in the production of solar cells for PV panels that convert sunlight to electricity. TCS is considered to be the first product in the solar PV value chain before polysilicon, and is also the principal source of ultrapure silicon in the semiconductor industry.
