SolarPower Restoration Systems Announces a Multi-Year Purchase Agreement of PV Modules with SBM Solar Inc

Santa Cruz, CA, February 28, 2009 --( SolarPower Restoration Systems Inc, an innovative developer of building and roofing integrated photovoltaic application technologies announced today it has signed a multi-year, multi mega-watt purchase agreement with SBM Solar Inc.

Under the purchase agreement, SolarPower Restoration Systems plans to purchase SBM Solar modules over a two-year period starting this April. The SBM modules shall be delivered according to SolarPower Restoration Systems specifications for a new non-glass polymer surfaced composite panel and crystalline module design by SBM Solar for SolarPower’s SolarSeal Technologies™ licensed partners rapidly growing system requirements.

This supply agreement is an outgrowth of the strategic alliance formed earlier last year by both companies to develop and manufacture new building integrated photovoltaic systems (BIPV) for the commercial roofing and building product industries. Both companies plan to expand their cooperation to further speed the development and deployment of new highly efficient and low cost non-glass, polymer surfaced crystalline PV solar modules for roofing and building envelope systems.

Michael Gumm, CEO of SolarPower Restoration Systems stated, “We are very pleased to expand our supply chain relationship with SBM Solar Inc, which supports our growth for the rapidly expanding BIPV activities of SRS, in this case primarily the deployment of the SolarSeal Fan-Fold System for commercial roof applications.

We combine our SolarSeal Technologies™ BIPV systems with SBM Solar’s flexible and high quality manufacturing technologies for polymer surfaced crystalline solar modules, creating new high efficiency and cost effective BIPV application solutions. The close cooperation between our companies expands our opportunities to grow and compete effectively in the growing field of building integrated photovoltaic systems.”

Dr. Osbert Cheung, founder of SBM Solar Inc. commented, “We are pleased SolarPower Restoration Systems has chosen us to be their primary non-glass, polymer surfaced solar module supplier. We are looking forward to new business opportunities with SolarPower’s partner companies who are licensing SolarSeal Technologies Systems from SolarPower. We look forward to creating new application uses of our SBM Solar modules with SolarPower”.
