About Standard Steam Canada Corp. and Standard Steam Trust LLC

Standard Steam Canada Corp. was created to acquire the largest single beneficial interest in Standard Steam Trust LLC ("SST"), a private Colorado-based geothermal exploration and development company that has assembled a portfolio of eight premier geothermal projects in Nevada, Idaho and Utah.

SST is a leading geothermal resource developer in the western United States. Since its inception in August 2008, SST has been focused on acquiring, exploring and developing industrial-scale geothermal resources, primarily those with total production potential of between 100 megawatts ("MW") and 300 MW per project, which are anticipated to be highly desirable to utilities, independent power producers and major energy companies. SST's goal is to develop its existing portfolio of projects into over 1,000 MW of power generating capacity. In this regard, two of SST's projects have an aggregate resource that GeothermEx, Inc., which is recognized as the premier consulting firm in the geothermal industry, has identified as having a 90% probability of being at least 258 MW, and a 50% probability of being at least 545 MW.
