  SEPV LITTLE ROCK SOLAR PROJECT
PROJECT FACT SHEET

  Solar Electric Solutions ("SES"), through its wholly owned subsidiary SEPV Little Rock LLC, developed and permitted the two megawatt (MWac) SEPV Little Rock solar project. Cost-competitive, renewable power generated by the facility is sold to Southern California Edison under a 20-year power purchase agreement, awarded in 2014 to the SES subsidiary under the seventh program period of the CPUC's Renewable Market Adjusting Tariff (Re-MAT) Program.

The project is located in northern Los Angeles County in the City of Palmdale, adjacant to SCE's existing electric distribution system. The SEPV Little Rock 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 1,000 homes. By generating clean renewable energy and avoiding any of the carbon emissions that would be produced by a fossil-fueled power plant, the project will contribute to cleaner air and result in a smaller carbon footprint for the state.
   
  SES sold SEPV Little Rock LLC to Sustainable Power Group in December 2014 after completing development. The project is expected to reach commercial operation in August 2015.
