We’re entering an exciting new season at Green Matters Technologies.

One of our goals has been to expand the patented energy recovery technology we’ve developed that captures waste heat from air conditioner chillers and utilizes that energy to create hot water for space heating and domestic use. Today, that journey begins.

We’ve signed a MOU (Memorandum of Understanding) with Greenbriar Capital to outline the process for Green Matters to design and manufacture sustainable energy recovery systems that will provide the domestic hot water, space heating and cooling for the 995-unit, “Sage Ranch” housing project in Tehachapi, CA, a 90-minute drive north of Los Angeles.

By incorporating Green Matters technology, the “Sage Ranch” project will add to its mission of creating a socially responsible, sustainable near-zero carbon footprint living community, with carbon offsets amounting to millions of tonnes of CO2 emission reductions.

Upon installation of a community-based energy recovery system, Green Matters will monitor and bill its services through smart energy metering, becoming the first of its kind in providing clean heating and cooling to the community as an HVAC utility service provider.

“One of the biggest problems in new real estate development is finding net zero options for heating water. Green Matters has figured out how to do that, and so partnering with them on this project will play a pivotal role in meeting our goals for sustainability.”   Jeff Ciachurski, CEO Greenbriar Capitol

“With the exceptionally high efficiencies of our patented energy recovery system, on one side we can provide the cold water needed to run AC systems, while on the other side, convert the waste heat that’s generated into domestic hot water and space heating, without the need for fossil fuels. It’s a win for both business and the environment.” Michael Caetano, CEO Green Matters Technologies  

Sage Ranch will also include rooftop solar panels for electrical generation on detached homes, power walls for electric car charging and energy storage, the capture and reuse of grey storm-water for outdoor irrigation and other non-potable uses, the use of smart meters and smart appliances, and a walkable community design that minimizes the need for daily driving.

Stay tuned for more details coming soon as we create the next generation of sustainable energy recovery systems.
