  SEPV2 SOLAR PROJECT
PROJECT FACT SHEET

  Solar Electric Solutions ("SES"), through its wholly owned subsidiary SEPV2 LLC, developed and permitted the two megawatt (MWac) SEPV2 solar project. Cost-competitive, renewable electricity is sold to Southern California Edison under a 20-year power purchase agreement, awarded in early 2011.

The project is located in southern San Bernardino County, adjacent to SCE's existing electric distribution system. The SEPV2 Solar Project has minimal impacts, using negligible water during construction for dust suppression and during operations for module washing.

The project provides the State of California with a new source of renewable energy to assist in achieving the state's Renewable Portfolio Standards, while creating jobs that boost the local economy, and supplying enough electricity to power 1000 homes. By generating clean renewable energy and avoiding any of the carbon emissions that would be produced by a fossil-fueled power plant, the SEPV2 Solar Project will contribute to cleaner air and result in a smaller carbon footprint for the state.
   
  SES sold SEPV2 LLC to Banco Santander and Gestamp Solar in February 2011 after completing development. The project reached commercial operation in April 2012.
