BALTIMORE, Jan. 10, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kalahari Greentech, Inc. (Pink Sheets:KHGT) announced today that the Solar Tri-Brid System is ideal for use on buildings utilized for education.

According to the Energy Information Administration, education buildings have the third highest energy expenditures, totaling $7.1 billion per year; most of which is for electricity. Buildings utilized for educational purposes account for 12% of all commercial energy consumption, using a total of 614 trillion Btu of combined site electricity, natural gas, fuel oil, and hot water. Specifically, they use 65 billion kWh (or 221 trillion Btu) of site energy each year. The majority of this energy is used for lighting. (Source: http://www.eia.doe.gov )

Of all the commercial building types, education buildings are the third highest total energy consumer. The energy expenditures in education buildings account for 10% of energy expenditures in all commercial buildings. On average, $0.67 per square foot is spent on electricity in buildings used for education. (Source: http://www.eia.doe.gov )

A paramount advantage of the Solar Collector system is that its energy storing efficiency is at its peak mid-day, when energy demands are at their highest. This allows the solar energy to be used to decrease peak power demands, thus securing a lower energy usage charge from the utility company.

Robert Matthews of Kalahari Greentech states, "Saving even 1% in energy costs could lower utility bills by $7.1 million per year."
