    About SmartCool Systems:

    SmartCool Systems Inc. is an advanced energy savings solutions company
specializing in energy and cost reduction technologies for commercial and
retail businesses. The company's wholly owned subsidiary, SmartCool
International Inc., is the owner, developer, manufacturer and worldwide
distributor of the System 4000 Energy Saving Module (ESM)(R). This green
technology reduces the electricity consumption (kWh) and maximum demand (kW)
of air conditioning and refrigeration compressors. Rather than replacing
existing equipment, the ESM 4000 works in conjunction with existing controls
in order to ensure that compressors work at maximum efficiency, while
maintaining preset temperature levels and without causing over-cycling. Rising
global energy demand is resulting in significant increases in energy prices.
Environmental concerns are causing both government and industry to re-examine
the way they do business. SmartCool provides companies with solutions to
address the growing pressure to reduce energy costs, increase profits and
reduce green house gas emissions. For more information, please visit
