  1. Practical Solutions to Hedge Against Rising Utility CostsMargarita Matoian, Project Development Manager November 6, 2008

  2. Rising Commercial Electricity Rates Cents/KWh Avg 5.5% ↑ per year Over the past five years, average US commercial electricity rates have increased by 28% Source: U.S. Department of Energy, September 9, 2008

  3. Rising Trend Projection DOE concurs 9.8% rise in 2009 Cents/KWh Ten years from now electric rates could be up by 88% Source: 2009 prediction U.S. Department of Energy, September 9, 2008. Assumes subsequent 5.5% increase/year.

  4. P-R Farms Clovis, CA

  5. PROJECT OVERVIEW Location: Clovis, CA Completed: July 2005 Installation Type: Commercial Roof System Size: 1,131 kWp PV surface area: 98, 100 square feet Number of Panels: 7,744 Products: SunPower PowerGuard Solar Electric System BENEFITS -Powers 50% of P-R Farms packing facility -Reduces energy and operating costs -Will reduce CO2 emissions by 10,000 tons over 30 years, which is equivalent to planting 2,800 acres of trees or not driving 25 million miles on California roadways P-R Farms “Solar electricity is the right thing to do – for the environment, the community, and for my business.” Pat Ricchiuti Owner, P-R Farms

  6. Donaghy Sales Fresno, CA

  7. PROJECT OVERVIEW Location: Fresno, CA Completed: 2007 Installation Type: Commercial Roof System Size: 1 MWp PV surface area: 175, 000 square feet Number of Panels: 4,716 Products: SunPower T10 Solar Roof Tiles BENEFITS -Powers more than 90% of Donaghy’s cold-storage distribution facility -Saves Donaghy over $250,000 a year in electricity costs -Reduces strain and feeds energy back to the utility grid during peak-demand daytime hours -Will reduce CO2 emissions by 12,180 tons over 30 years, which is equivalent to not driving over 30 million miles Donaghy Sales “We had a lot of roof space and large electric bills, and I thought solar power would make good economic sense.” Scott Tolzmann CFO, Donaghy Sales

  8. Gap Inc. Fresno, CA

  9. PROJECT OVERVIEW Location: Fresno, CA Completed: Oct 2008 Installation Type: Commercial Tracker System Size: 1,040 kWp System area: 5 acres Number of Panels: 4,500 Products: SunPower T0 Single-Axis Tracking Solar Electric System BENEFITS -Produces 1,900,000 kWh annually or enough to supply power to about 350 homes -Reduces energy and operating costs -Will offset 2.5 million pounds of greenhouse gas emissions annually, which is equivalent to taking 2,466 vehicles off the road over the life of the project Gap Inc. “Over the past decade, Gap Inc. has south to find better ways to do business, and this solar installation is one such shining example.” Kindley Walsh Lawlor Sr. Director, Strategic Planning & Environmental Affairs, Gap, Inc.

  10. 1 4 Economic, Environmental and Social Benefits of Solar 2 5 Reduced carbon footprint and zero emissions — Be part of the solution! Purchase electricity at or below current utility rates 6 3 Align with organizational sustainability goals Flexible financing options Reduce fossil fuel dependence Hedge against rising and volatileelectricity prices

  11. SunPower • Worldwide footprint • World record solar cell efficiency = MORE POWER • 4,000 Employees: All we do is solar • Over 85 patents and over 20 years of R&D • Over a quarter century of experience • Publicly traded (NASDAQ) and partnershipswith top-tier financiers • Over 450 systems on 3 continents • Energy efficiency expertise • Over 350 MW installed • SunPower PV systems deliver their stated energy output • Largest solar projects in North America Established and Proven.
