TORONTO, Sept. 15, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — EarthRenew Inc. (CSE:ERTH) (“EarthRenew” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce a very successful power generation month in July 2020. EarthRenew’s Strathmore facility generated 80MWh and earned an estimated CDN$38,450 in electricity sales revenue. The direct costs for the turbine unit at the facility were CDN$8,177 and the gross margin corresponding to such revenue was an estimated CDN$30,273.The power generation facility at EarthRenew is capable of generating up to four megawatts per hour. The facility was particularly successfully at delivering electricity to the Alberta electrical grid during the high-power peaks during the last week of July 2020, which we associate with the hotter summer weather. As a result, the month of July 2020 was especially profitable for our power production business line. The pool price for electricity reached CDN$779.78 per MWh in July 2020 and over the last 30-days of the month the average power price was CDN$55.48 per MWh, as reported by the Alberta Electric System Operator (AESO).EarthRenew’s chief executive officer, Keith Driver, commented, “we are very pleased with the power sales in July. This cashflow from current operations supports the company as we continue the redevelopment of the Strathmore fertilizer operations.” Mr. Driver further added, “months like July demonstrate our ability to generate additional value from our electricity production beyond what we require to operate by delivering excess power to the grid.”About EarthRenewEarthRenew transforms livestock waste into a high-performance organic fertilizer to be used by organic and traditional growers in Canada and the United States. Our mission is to support a farm system that puts healthy soils and grower profitability back on the table.
