ReneSola to Pioneer Zhejiang Province's First BIPV Project

JIASHAN, China, May 13 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- ReneSola Ltd ("ReneSola" or the "Company") (NYSE: SOL) (AIM: SOLA), a leading global manufacturer of solar wafers, today announced that it has obtained approval from Zhejiang's provincial government to pioneer a five megawatt ("MW") building integrated photovoltaic ("BIPV") rooftop project in China's Zhejiang province. The BIPV rooftop project has a total planned area of 80,400 square meters on several government buildings in Jiashan County, Zhejiang province and is subject to final approval by the Ministries of Finance and Housing and Urban-Rural Development.

The BIPV rooftop project has a budgeted total investment of RMB160 million (approximately US$23.4 million) and will be partially funded through the RMB15 per watt subsidy announced by China's Ministry of Finance in March of 2009. The local government may provide additional subsidies and ReneSola has reached a tentative partnership agreement with a local bank to provide additional funding.

"We are very pleased to have been approved by the Zhejiang government to spearhead the province's first BIPV project," commented Mr. Xianshou Li, ReneSola's chief executive officer. "This project, combined with national and local subsidies and the Zhejiang government's recently announced plans to increase solar energy-related projects to 50MW by 2012, demonstrates the increasing importance both national and local governments are placing in developing clean, renewable solar energy. As the cost of solar energy continues to decline and approach grid parity, we are confident that our low- cost manufacturing and position as one of the world's leading manufacturers of solar wafers will provide us with new opportunities to partner with local governments in developing sustainable solar projects."
