Principal Solar Takes Significant Strides to Build World's First Distributed Solar Utility: Acquires 3.5MW Solar Project in Andover, Mass.

Solar project slated for Andover, Mass.

Dallas, TX – September 5, 2012 -- Principal Solar, Inc (PSI; OTC Pink: PSWW), a publicly traded solar energy holding company executing a unique roll-up strategy to create the world's first distributed solar utility, today announced the acquisition of a 3.5MW solar project slated for Andover, Mass. from SunGen and R&D Solar. Originally developed by Talmage Solar Engineering, Inc. in Arundel, ME, construction is expected to begin in Q2 2013. The completed solar system will interconnect to National Grid's substation in Andover, Mass.


"The considerable size and partnership approach to this project exemplify the work we are doing at PSI to build this distributed solar utility," says R. Michael Martin, executive vice president, Business Development, PSI. "Our partners, R&D and SunGen, have developed an excellent project that we are ready to bring on-line in 2013."

The Andover project expands the presence of PSI in New England. In 2011, PSI worked with Talmage Solar Engineering, Inc. to acquire two other solar installations: one in Massachusetts and one in Maine.

Kale Inoue, chief financial officer, Talmage Solar Engineering, Inc., says, "We continue to expand our relationship with PSI, and are very excited to build this array. The site is perfect and a solar farm is by far the best use for this land."

GreenFasten™ solar panel roof mount hardware, watertight, USA made

The GreenFasten™ - GF1 system utilizes the patented watertight technology EcoFasten Solar® is known for. The flashing is fit with our EPDM rubber bushing and when used with a compatible EcoFasten Solar compression bracket (milled with countersink), a watertight seal is created, which protects the integrity of the roof. Requiring just a single fastener (lag bolt or self-drilling), GreenFasten provides the fastest install in the industry and will not void roofing manufacturer's warranties. Backed by IAPMO certification, GreenFasten delivers a mounting solution for all new or existing (retrofit) composition shingle roofs, and is the most cost-effective solution available. Like all of the solar roof mount solutions in our line of products, GreenFasten is made in the USA using recycled materials.
