Cleantech Transit Inc. was founded to capitalize on technology advances and manufacturing opportunities in the growing clean energy public transportation sector.

Biomass is any organic material not derived from fossil fuels that can be converted to a fuel useful for generating electricity. Biomass can be waste products, or crops planted expressly to produce energy, like the poplar trees. Biomass generates electricity by combustion, which releases the stored solar energy contained in the plant matter. Unlike wind or solar, a benefit of biomass is that it is "dispatchable" - that is, it can be turned on and off on demand. Utilities in particular like this feature, because it ensures that the power is available when they need it the most.

Cleantech Transit, Inc. (OTCPK:CLNO) is pleased to announce it has met its funding requirement to secure the Company's ability to earn in 25% of the 500KW Merced Project.

The Company is in the final stages of closing its initial interest in the Merced Project and is currently working on completing the necessary documentation and expects closing the transaction soon. As previously announced Cleantech has the option to earn up to 40% of the Merced Project and the Company plans to continue to work towards increasing its interest in the Merced Project as they move ahead.

Using biomass power replaces the need to burn coal to generate electricity. Additionally, the use of biomass power also reduces the need for oil to mine and deliver coal to far off power stations, thereby significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Most surprisingly, using wood waste as fuel is actually more beneficial to the environment than allowing it to decompose naturally, because of the elimination of methane during combustion.
