James E. Wagner Cultivation Corporation (“JWC” or the “Corporation”) (TSXV:JWCA), is pleased to announce that on September 17, 2018, it received pre-approval for the saveONenergy incentive program (the “Incentive Program”) for its  climate control systems, installed during the phase one development of its second 345,000 square foot facility located on Manitou Drive in Kitchener, Ontario (“JWC 2”). The Incentive Program is administered through JWC’s local distribution company, Kitchener-Wilmot Hydro Inc.

Recognizing that the cannabis industry is highly energy-intensive, JWC has made it their priority to develop an environmentally-conscious and energy-efficient production process. JWC has implemented state-of-the-art, Price Industries’ GRW HVAC units (the “Units”) at its current pilot facility and has also commenced installation of these Units at JWC 2. JWC intends to pursue the Incentive Program on all future HVAC process equipment installations during the next phases of construction at JWC 2. Through the use of these Units, the Corporation has achieved advanced micro-climate environmental control providing both increased production yields and reductions in plant lifecycle, thereby improving the energy efficiency of the entire production process. As a result, JWC believes it is an excellent and unique candidate for the Incentive Program.


If JWC receives final approval under the Incentive Program, JWC will be reimbursed for up to fifty percent (50%) of its process HVAC infrastructure costs. In order to be eligible for final approval and financial reimbursement, JWC is completing a twelve-month measurement and verification period, to ensure that the Units are functioning at the projected level of energy-efficiency. JWC has worked closely with Kitchener-Wilmot Hydro Inc. on this project to ensure the greatest potential for environmental benefits is achieved. Kitchener-Wilmot Hydro Inc. anticipates this being the largest energy efficiency project that Kitchener-Wilmot Hydro Inc. has completed to date. The first phase of Units installed by JWC will save an estimated 3,100,000 kilowatt hours (“kWh”) annually, which is equivalent to the energy consumed by more than 375 homes in the Kitchener region. With the aid of the Incentive Program, JWC will be able to effectively measure energy savings, continue to optimize its operations, and receive a substantial return on investment.
