									SolarCraft Completes Solar Power System for Sunny Hills Services

Novato and Sonoma based SolarCraft announced the completion of a
53.6 kW solar electric system at Sunny Hills Services in San Anselmo, CA. The photovoltaic system
will provide enormous savings for its long-standing facility.

Novato, CA, December 07, 2012 --(PR.com)-- Mary Denton, Sunny Hills Services' CEO, said “We truly
appreciate the effort that SolarCraft put into finding lease financing that is cost-neutral over the
seven-year term of the lease—a key criteria for us. Being able to implement this green energy
solution means a lot to us, and in addition, it will generate financial savings for the Agency after the
initial lease term is up.”

The system is roof-mounted on the gymnasium and administration buildings, spanning over 3,963 square
feet, helping to shade and cool the building.

Each of the 224 solar panels is controlled by a microinverter, manufactured by Enphase Energy of
Petaluma, CA. Microinverters are small, compact units directly attached to each solar panel to convert
power independently at the panel, maximizing energy production and reducing impacts from shading.
Overall system efficiency is increased by 10 - 12%.

The system's solar panels convert sunlight directly into electricity and is expected to generate
approximately 90,000 kilowatt hours of energy annually, providing sustainable and price stable energy to
their operations for decades to come.

The new solar energy system allows Sunny Hills to generate enough electricity each day to power over 27
average homes. It will spare the air nearly 40 tons of harmful greenhouse gases annually. Over the next
30 years, the air pollution saved will be equivalent to eliminating nearly 2.7 million miles of driving.
