    PV Module Manufacturer Increases Advanced Sales with 47 MW of New Orders

    BURNABY, British Columbia, March 5 /CNW/ -- Day4 Energy Inc. (TSX: DFE),
a leading manufacturer of high performance, cost-effective solar electric
modules, today announced that in response to significant market demand an
additional 47 MW in solar module deliveries has been contracted for 2009 and
2010, bringing the company's annual advanced sales totals to 55 MW and 66 MW,
respectively. The completion of these new contracts increases Day4 Energy's
order book for the fiscal year of 2009 by more than 40 percent and 2010 by
almost 90 percent. The new contracts include both expanded existing
relationships and several new partners including utilities, major commercial
and residential installers.
    "The strong rate of market adoption of our products demonstrates both the
value of our channel partner philosophy and exceptional field performance of
our highly efficient products," said George Rubin, president and COO of Day4
Energy. "The fact that this sales growth comes from a varied base of channel
partners in our core markets is a testament to our success in building
diversified market coverage and providing added value to established
relationships rather than simply generating one-time sales. These new
contracts are the results of our work with dozens of new and existing
customers, indicating our diverse and growing global customer and partner

schedule. Following the successful completion of its initial public offering
in December 2007, the company is executing on aggressive growth plans to meet
