Sky H2O and EcoloBlue form Strategic Alliance to deliver world-class utility-scale Atmospheric Water Generation Projects in the USA

Together Sky H2O and EcoloBlue have designed a fast-track Atmospheric Water Generation (“AWG”) solution starting at 500 AF per year that can deliver fresh potable water to communities and businesses across the Western USA

SAN FRANCISCO, CA (BUSINESS WIRE) JUNE 15, 2015, Sky H2O, Inc. (“SkyH2O”), a utility-grade water generating systems developer and independent water provider (“IWP”) today announced a strategic alliance EcoloBlue to accelerate the deployment of utility-scale AWG’s projects across the USA. This AWG industry collaboration is specifically structured to assist water stressed communities and businesses to address challenges caused by the ongoing draught conditions in California and the Western United States.

SkyH2O has partnered with EcoloBlue to integrate their unique, patented and proven atmospheric water technology and products into SkyH2O AWG projects. SkyH2O’s AWG systems enjoy a +25 year life expectancy, with minimal maintenance, and have minimal environmental impact. AWG systems can be deployed in a distributed manner, specifically where water is needed most including at or near existing reservoir infrastructure enabling independence and self-reliance. “EcoloBlue is a pioneer in the fast evolving AWG industry and has developed world-class technology and products. Working with EcoloBlue allows us to provide our customers with the very best AWG projects,” said Alexander von Welczeck, CEO of SkyH2O.

SkyH2O’s pre-engineered fast-track AWG systems are uniquely designed for the Western USA that begin at about 500 AF (acre foot) per year capacity with a foot print in the approximate size of a football field and can be modularly expanded to +50,000 AF per year. The process begins with an on-site 30+ day Feasibility Study and Project Assessment that utilizes our AWS-003 mobile demonstration system, followed by permitting and an about 6-month EPC construction period. “SkyH2O’s professional team has proven experience in water, clean energy, infrastructure, technology and project development and financing. Their home-grown local know-how to rapidly deliver utility-grade atmospheric water generation (“AWG”) projects in the Western USA and operational expertise is unique and unmatched in the AWG marketplace, and management’s ability to team with the best EPC contractors to develop the highest quality AWG projects speaks to the strengths of their internal processes,” said Wayne Ferreira, CEO of EcoloBlue.

Utility-scale AWG project costs begin at about $12 million. As an IWP (independent water producer) SkyH2O will sell water to well qualified customers at wholesale water prices under a long-term Water Purchase Agreements (“WPA”) in many Western USA locations including coastal, inland and even desert.

EcoloBlue Machine Donation: Tulare County Drought Situation Dire As Neighbors Steal Water From Neighbors

On Tuesday, working next to community showers in the Iglesia Emmanuel Church parking lot in the drought’s hardest-hit area in the state, Hernandez anxiously awaited a delivery he believes will make a big difference.

“Today is a good day,” he said. “We don’t get too many days around here lately.”

Bay Area company Ecoloblue is in Tulare County, donating an atmospheric water generator that makes purified drinking water from the humidity in the air.

The unit makes up to eight gallons a day, a mere drop in the bucket. But in a community with more than 1,000 people without water, Hernandez says it’s at least something.

The Reality Behind the Power Cost of an EcoloBlue Home/Office Unit

We occasionally get some raised eyebrows when we mention the power consumption of our EB30 Series units. This is very surprising. Given that at about 380 Watts, it runs on far less energy than half of your appliances, costs far less than bottled water, prevents plastic bottle waste, and to most people is a necessity to provide clean drinking water. Unlike running a TV, microwave or dishwasher that are not really needed in the grand scheme of things.

Using the formula on THIS website, let’s see how this plays out…

1. Estimate of time used: The EcoloBlue should remain powered on 24/7

2. Wattage: The wattage is around 380 Watts at normal usage/idle. If you use the hot function, it will rise slightly during those short durations. Alternately, when the machine is running idle, it used less than 30 Watts. But we will use 380 as a baseline for this example.

3. Daily energy consumption:
(380 W × 24 Hrs) ÷ 1,000 = 9.12 kWh

4. Annual energy consumption: The machine is used daily.
9.12 kWh × 365 = 3328.8 kWh

5. Annual cost: The utility rate is 11 cents per kWh for this example. Check your own bill for your specific rate.
3328.8 kWh × $0.11/kWh = $366.17/year (and the water is FREE)

Our EB30 Series machines create ‘up to’ 8 gallons a day based on humidity levels. So again, so the sake of this example, let’s just say the machine creates 5 gallons a day in an average humidity location.

– 5 gallons a day x 365 days = 1,825 gallons a year

– $366.17 / 1,825 gallons = $.20 a gallon

At this time on Office Depot’s website (for example), you can get 1 gallon of water for $.99.

– That bottled water would cost $1806.75 annually for 1,825 gallons.
– That is $1,440.58 more than the electricity cost of running the EB30.

So while your money is going to your power company instead of your grocery store, you are still saving $1,440.58 every year on your bottled water purchases. In the end, I really see no arguments for anyone saying that the machine uses too much electricity. It actually pays for itself 4-5 times over in reality, if you stop buying bottled water.

Makes sense to me.
