Hires Paul Garvison as VP of the Residential Power Systems Division

San Jose, CA November 21, 2008 - SunWize's Distributed Power Group has reorganized its rapidly growing Power Systems installation business into two separate divisions. The Residential Power Systems Division is headed by industry veteran Paul Garvison, while the Commercial Power Systems Division continues to be led by Senior VP David Panico.

"To better serve our customers and enable our accelerating expansion, we've restructured Power Systems into residential and commercial business divisions," reports David Kaltsas, EVP and President of the Distributed Power Group at SunWize. "The move enhances our ability to create and deliver tailored solutions to homeowners, businesses, and institutions. We are particularly pleased to have Paul Garvison join our team to guide the growth of the Residential Power Systems Division as its Vice President. Paul's years of business development experience with BP Solar and decades of solar industry experience are a perfect fit."

"I am excited to be a part of the dynamic SunWize organization and look forward to expanding the solar electric solutions we offer to our residential customers," states Paul Garvison "My goal is to continually improve our installation services while building a scalable business infrastructure and model."

Paul Garvison was formerly the Director of Business Development for BP Solar North America, where he was responsible for the creation and launch of new offers to homeowners, including the highly visible programs with Shea Homes' Trilogy Division and Old Country Roofing's Solar Solutions.
