Naval Research Laboratories to Install GreenCore Solar Air Conditioners at Remote Lab Site

RANCHO CUCAMONGA, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 07/29/08 -- GreenCore Technology, Inc., formerly AquaCell Technologies, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: AQUA), announced today that it has received an order from the United States Navy for its solar powered air conditioners, which will be installed in a remote laboratory site operated by the Naval Research Laboratories ("NRL"). The order also includes the sale of ten GreenCore-specified 170 Watt/35 volt photovoltaic solar panels, along with peripheral solar related equipment.
The NRL's requirement was for uninterrupted air conditioning 24 hours per day, 365 days a year in an area with unreliable power, including no electric power during certain times of the year. The GreenCore air conditioners will operate completely grid-free for the majority of the year, and during certain seasons, will operate in hybrid mode.
"To be involved with the US Navy on this project has been very exciting for us, as it is critical for their operations that the air conditioning is always functioning with or without a traditional power supply," said James C. Witham, GreenCore's Chief Executive Officer. "We worked closely with the technical staff at the Naval Research Laboratories to design the most efficient system once they determined that our GreenCore 10200 solar powered air conditioner was the only product that could meet their needs."
The GreenCore solar powered air conditioner combines the most efficient photovoltaic technology with DC (direct current) engineered air conditioning innovation to provide climate control that does not contribute to greenhouse gas emissions and global warming. The system has been designed to efficiently operate completely grid-free, or as a hybrid air conditioning unit, automatically switching from solar to battery power. In hybrid mode, if the sun is not available to charge the batteries through the solar panels, the GreenCore system will automatically switch to allow the batteries to be charged by AC power (alternating current).
