  SEPV PALMDALE EAST SOLAR PROJECT
PROJECT FACT SHEET

  Solar Electric Solutions ("SES"), through its wholly owned subsidiary SEPV Palmdale East LLC, developed and permitted the ten megawatt (MWac) SEPV Palmdale East 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 early 2013 to the SES subsidiary under the third solicitation of the CPUC's Renewable Auction Mechanism Program (RAM).

The project is located in northern Los Angeles County in the City of Palmdale, adjacant to SCE's existing electric distribution system. The SEPV Palmdale East 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 3,500 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 Palmdale East LLC to Sustainable Power Group in June 2014 after completing development. The project is expected to reach commercial operation in June 2015.
