Real estate that is taking a cost effective, energy efficient and environmentally responsible approach to heating and air conditioning

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
October 30, 2008

Cambridge, ON – A budding adult resort lifestyle community in Port Dover is going ‘green’ thanks to a
formal partnership between GeoSmart Energy and Alliance Homes .

The collaboration will result in the
installation of geothermal heating and cooling systems on the 425 acre Dover Coast development which
will also house an 18‐hole golf course and club house.

“This is an exceptional opportunity for homeowners to invest in real estate that is taking a cost effective,
energy efficient and environmentally responsible approach to heating and air conditioning,” says Chad
Brezynskie, Vice President of Sales & Marketing, GeoSmart Energy. “We applaud Alliance Homes for
embracing a leadership role in the installation of residential energy efficient systems that respect the
environment and offer new homeowners viable energy alternatives to gas.”

Installation of GeoSmart’s geothermal heating and cooling systems will be standard on homes built on
50’ lots and will also be installed in the future golf course club house, recreation centre and multi‐level
condominiums. The feature will be optional in homes on 40’ lots and townhomes. Currently, 75 of the
95 homes in phase one will have GeoSmart’s geothermal products installed.

“We’re proud to be aligned with one of North America’s leading edge geothermal suppliers,” says Alex
Troop, President, Alliance Homes. “Our shared commitment to top quality products, excellent customer
service and preserving the environment makes this partnership a win‐win situation for new
homeowners.”

Alliance Homes has established a heating, cooling, ventilating and air conditioning division (HVAC)
dedicated to the installation and service of GeoSmart branded geothermal systems in the Dover Coast
development as well as current and future Alliance Homes projects. All installers will benefit from
GeoSmart’s nationally renowned customer‐focused installation training program.

“In these eco‐friendly times, it makes so much sense to go geothermal when it comes to heating and
cooling your home,” says Flo Copeland who attended a recent geothermal information session at the
Dover Coast development with her husband Pete. “You can’t beat the cost savings, energy efficiency and
eco benefits it generates coupled with the confidence that the installation has been handled by people
who are leaders in this industry.”

GeoSmart’s geothermal heating and cooling systems tap into the free and renewable energy stored in
the earth. By simply moving heat energy to or from the home and earth through a ground loop system,
a geothermal unit achieves efficiency levels that ordinary gas furnaces or air conditioners are unable to
reach.

The Dover Coast development features bungalow townhomes and detached designs for every lifestyle
and budget. For more information about the Dover Coast development and how you can tap into
geothermal energy alternatives, visit the Alliance Homes website at www.alliancehomes.ca.
