Day4 Energy Offers Turnkey Solution to Solar Power Investors

    Project Financing Partnership to Fuel Growth in Deployment of Leading
    Solar Power Generation Products

    BURNABY, BC - Aug. 28 /CNW/ - Day4 Energy Inc. (TSX: DFE), a leading
manufacturer of high performance, cost-effective solar electric modules, today
announced the strategic partnership with CERTUS Life Cycle AG (CLC) to finance
photovoltaic (PV) power generation projects in Europe with a specific focus on
the expanding Italian market. Under the arrangement Day4 Energy will leverage
its industry leading solar module technology and extensive network of system
integration partners to develop turnkey PV power generation projects
commissioned and funded by CLC.
    CLC is a German based finance company that recently added PV power
generation projects to its existing investment portfolio of insurance
products. The strategic partnership between the parties provides Day4 Energy
with direct access to a new vertical market of investor funded solar power
generation projects. In return, CLC will benefit from Day4 Energy's industry
leading technology, which delivers premium return on invested capital
performance. With a number of projects under consideration both companies
expect the co-operation to translate into tangible business in the near
    "Having undergone a significant amount of due diligence we feel that Day4
Energy's ability to combine the installation expertise of its channel partners
with superior field performance of Day4 Electrode modules creates a highly
attractive investment proposition for our investors." says Mr. Sibold, chief
executive officer of CLC.
    Investor funded solar power generation projects represent a very rapidly
growing vertical market. The model is expected to prove particularly
attractive in markets like Italy that benefit from a strong natural solar
resource as well as favorable government subsidies that provide increasingly
attractive long-term project returns due to escalating grid power prices.
    "I am excited about this strategic co-operation with CLC. It will allow
us to deliver premium investment opportunities to the fund's shareholders as
well as to create numerous project opportunities for Day4 Energy and its
channel partners", said George Rubin, president of Day4 Energy. "Solar energy
is the business of pre-paid electrical power. As a result of that, financing
is an integral part of the solution that also includes technology, system
design and installation. We already have industry leading module technology
and our channel partners are the best PV system experts in the field. By
working together with CLC we are looking to complete the puzzle."
