August 16, 2006 TORONTO: Solera Sustainable Energies Company ' has accepted the challenge to help build Canada's first solar park. The first solar provider to sign on as an official sponsor of the initiative, Solera is committed to seeing Canada's first solar park come to light.


The concept of the solar park, developed by Sunpark Energy Corp., is to generate clean, solar electricity to sell back into the Ontario Power Grid. Solar energy is non-polluting and environmentally sound and reliable enough to produce electricity for large scale residential and commercial use. As the production does not emit any greenhouse gases that contribute to global warming, it is safe, renewable and sustainable.

States Leonard Allen CEO Solera Sustainable Energies Company "Sunpark represents a significant milestone in the evolution of renewable energy projects in Canada. By further bringing to light the benefits and viability of today's solar energy technology, initiatives such as this are important in spurring increased investment in renewables, to the benefit of all Canadians"

The solar park will be the first of its kind in Canada. Located in the outskirts of Guelph, ON, the solar park will generate green, renewable energy and sell it back into the Ontario Power Grid. As the project will take years to become financially self-sustaining, Sunpark Energy Corp. has launched The Sunpark Challenge in order to raise the initial capital necessary and involve the country in the pursuit of cleaner energy.

"Solera is uniquely positioned to service the needs of the Sunpark. Few solar companies in Canada have Solera's experience with large solar grid installations," said Richard Mash, President, Sunpark Energy Corp. "Solera is not only our first solar energy sponsor, but will lead the way for other renewable energy sponsors to come on board."

About the Sunpark Challenge:
The Sunpark Challenge is a unique project, inviting all Canadians to become involved in supporting the development of the solar park. Educating and empowering Canadians to help create a better planet, the Sunpark Challenge encourages both individuals and companies to make a donation to support the initiative.
