GFE Sustainable, Inc., together with its affiliates (collectively referred to as “the Company,” “GFE Sustainable,” “GFES,” “we,” or “us”), a Wyoming corporation, is a sustainable resource company that plans to use its present asset base to develop and market efficiently produced clean water products, clean Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) products, , clean renewable “green” energy, and further develop and patent its rich portfolio of intellectual property (IP). GFES has created a corporate structure into the following divisions:
GFES’ strategy is to develop, scale and generate revenue from our clean agriculture brand and clean water resources on the Company’s properties and to form joint ventures in our clean energy division to develop the Company’s present properties in Known Geothermal Resource Areas (“KGRA”), and to identify and acquire “site control” of additional PV solar and geothermal properties located in the vicinity of electric transmission lines, and then partner with large PV solar development companies. GFES plans to create strategic partnerships with companies with proven track records or who have superior clean energy development projects, products and patents that would not typically be available to smaller companies.
GFES’ long-term mission is to develop and scale all CEA sites and water resources on current Company properties and continue to aggregate sustainable energy resources for sale in the U.S. to established, vertically integrated energy developers, utilities or municipalities through proven processes and advanced technologies and boosting local, national and international economies with significant job creation and employment opportunities, while contributing to reduce carbon footprints. We continue our focus on creating clean, renewable, streamlined projects with advanced technology.
The Company owns the rights to a clean, high-quality, reliable and large drinking water resource that it owns in Utah. The Company plans to generate sales from GFES water products and water-based applications through a distribution network to customers in the private label, wholesale and government sectors and through joint-venture partners. GFES Water products include: Boxed water with an estimated shelf-life of greater than two years, in 350 mL, 750 mL and 960 mL cartons made from over ninety-percent renewable materials for immediate consumption. Another potential use of GFES water resources is to produce nutritional and medical products. The Company has invested a significant amount of time and resources in its sustainable and renewable drilling and clean water development program and will add additional wells as expanded operations require. Independent laboratories in a state accredited university have completed testing the water from the GFES well and the data reflects an outstanding resource with 7.22 pH water that has also been flow tested with an abundance of capacity The Company has received an additional independent valuation report indicating that GFES clean water is considered “pristine” and meets quality standards for CEA and other consumptive uses. Currently, the Company is in the process of finalizing production plans.
GFES has outstanding scalability and growth potential with Fresh Valley Harvest (“FVH”) utilizing controlled environment agriculture (CEA). In its first phase, FVH plans to introduce a highly efficient CEA greenhouse with proven technology. FVH plans to feature state-of-the-art production power with a fully automated hydroponic growing, harvesting and packaging system. FVH endeavors to meet the expanding demands from grocery chains and consumers while localizing our food supply for safer, locally grown sustainable food. FVH’s 365-days per year growing method uses significantly less water and fewer energy resources than traditional farming methods. The Fresh Valley Harvest CEA phase one has been permitted and is located in Beaver, Utah between four major market distribution centers: Salt Lake City, Utah; Las Vegas, Nevada; Denver, Colorado and Los Angeles, California. Fresh Valley Harvest is thinking differently about how to become more ecologically responsible in producing our food more efficiently. The FVH project feasibility study has been completed and development of the project continues. It is currently the Company’s plan to locate other CEA projects on other properties owned or leased by GFES.
In the Clean Energy division, GFES is a sustainable and clean energy exploration pre-development company. GFES uniquely positioned with outstanding sustainability potential focused on the exploration and development of both photovoltaic (“PV”) solar energy and geothermal fields. GFES’ PV solar and geothermal sites, currently owned or contracted, based on independent reports, are projected to have a potential range of over 100 MW of combined PV solar, storage and geothermal renewable energy ready to go on the grid and take maximum advantage of the Section 1603 Treasury Program, a technology-neutral finance mechanism that allows solar and other renewable energy project developers to receive a direct federal grant in lieu of the Section 48 Investment Tax Credit. The Company is also actively involved in implementing joint-venture and partnerships for our renewable energy assets. In 2019, we conducted productive discussions with a Global Fortune 50 Company related to a joint venture with GFES for our Arizona property and we have received a letter of intent from the Global Fortune 50 company, as well as a term sheet from another potential partner. As of the date of this Offering, GFES has signed multiple term sheet agreements with several municipalities concerning power offtake agreements for sales of future power generation. GFES’ long term strategy is to develop, scale and generate revenue from our properties in KGRA, and to identify and acquire “site control” of additional PV solar and geothermal properties that are located near substations and in the vicinity of electric transmission lines, and then partner with large PV solar development companies. GFES plans to create strategic partnerships with companies with proven track records or who have superior clean energy development projects, products and patents.
It is GFES’ intention that our growing intellectual property (IP) assets and initiatives will provide a stable platform for creativity, innovation and future profitability. We are actively developing innovative state-of-the-art designs that we believe will significantly lower the costs of sustainable energy systems through streamlined design, assembly, installation and longevity of PV systems, through new designs and high-tech, strength and cost-saving materials. We believe these economical innovations will lend unparalleled universality in application, installation, and use, potentially leading to potentially lowering the cost per kWh in the industry. The Company currently has ten technical drawings and supporting materials nearing completion and plans to submit patent applications in the near future.
The Company is currently managed by seasoned business and sector professionals dedicated to the success of the Company and efficient execution of its planned operations.
