    Solar Module Manufacturer Executing on Planned Expansion to Meet Customer
    Demand
    

    BURNABY, British Columbia, March 27 /CNW/ -- Day4 Energy, Inc. (TSX:
DFE), a leading manufacturer of high performance, cost-effective solar
electric modules, today announced that the company has increased contracted
sales for 2008 to nearly 32 MW. This increase is due to signing of 2.9 MW of
additional sales contracts since completion of the IPO in December 2007. The
increase is a direct result of growing demand for the company's advanced Day4
MC solar modules and includes contracts with customers and partners in the
residential, commercial and utility markets in Europe and North America.
    "Our objective is to build sales channels that create long term value for
Day4 Energy and our international channel partners. In today's dynamic solar
energy market, it can be tempting to take advantage of every opportunity that
comes in the door. However, patience and laser focus on long-term objectives
are critical components of enduring success," said George Rubin, president and
COO of Day4 Energy.
    The highly efficient Day4 48 MC solar module is based on the company's
proprietary Day4 Electrode technology, an innovative approach to module
construction that directly replaces the decades-old soldering connection
methods to improve module efficiency, decrease costs and enable continued
innovation in solar technology development. In order to meet rising demand for
the company's high performance solar products, Day4 Energy is currently
executing on plans to expand its annual production capacity from 12 MW to 40
MW by the end of Q2 2008 as well as further expansion to 90 MW by the end of
Q4 2008.
    Continued Rubin, "We have a solid expansion plan in place and an entire
team -- from sales and marketing, to R&D, to production and finance -- that is
singularly committed to meeting those objectives. With all of the new
challenges and opportunities involved through our first quarter of being a
public company, I am particularly proud that execution of our stated plans has
continued to be timely and flawless."
