3 CURRENT ELECTRIC USAGE AND BILLING Current Electric Usage 18,000 kwh /yr Current Rate Schedule E1 Monthly Bill (Before Solar) $ 403 /mo Annual Bill (Before Solar) $ 4,832 /yr
4 HOW SOLAR ELECTRIC SYSTEMS WORK DAY: 1 Sunlight falls on PV array generating DC electricity. 1# 4# 2 Inverter converts DC electricity into AC electricity. 3 AC electricity generated goes to appliances or lights. Excess electricity goes to the utility grid spinning your electric meter backwards. 2# 3# 4 This reduces electric usage from the utility grid, and reduces your electric bill. This happens silently and automatically everyday. NIGHT: 1,2 Solar system's output stops. 1#. 4# 3,4 Building gets the electricity directly from the utility grid. Time-Of-Use metering takes advantage of higher daytime electric rates, allowing you to sell power at a high rate, and buy it back at night at a lower rate. 2# 3# This gives you the same reduction in your electric bill but with a smaller solar system, reducing the system's cost.

10 ECONOMICS AND RETURNS Electric Bill Savings 1st-Year Savings $4, Year Cumulative Net Savings $141,763 Pre-Tax Compound Annual Rate of Return (IRR) over 25 years 22.7% Total Lifecycle Payback 3.6x Simple Payback 8.1 years Estimated Initial Increase in Property Value $90,720 Estimated Maximum Resale Value increase occurs at year 8 $105,708 Disclaimer: This information is provided as an illustration of potential financial benefits stemming from ownership of a renewable energy power system. This is not a production guarantee. A professional accountant or tax advisor should confirm these estimates. Neither nor OnGrid Solar warrants the applicability of these estimates for particular business cases, and both disclaim all liability.
11 ESTIMATED RESALE VALUE A home's value increases by $20,000 for every $1,000 reduction in annual operating costs efficiency (according to the Appraisal Journal) $180,000 $160,000 $140,000 Resale Value Over Time Rationale: Money from reduction in operating costs can be spent on larger mortgage with no net change in monthly cost of ownership (to a future buyer) Resale value increases over time as electric bill savings increases due to escalation Resale Value $120,000 $100,000 $80,000 $60,000 $40,000 $20,000 Maximum value is likely capped at remaining savings before system is out of module warranty (25 years) Years $ Remaining savings within 25 years Effective Resale Value 20 times Annual Savings
12 SMART FINANCING Smart Financing with a Line of Credit versus inefficent or optimistic simple loans: Interest Rate: 7.5% Term: 30 years Inefficient Loan Smart Financed Loan Optimistic Loan Amount Borrowed: $56,822 $56,822 $39,776 Customer Out-of-Pocket Expense: Monthly Payment (before interest tax deduction): $0 $0 $17,047 $401 $289 $281 Smart Financing results depend on all tax incentives being applied to loan principal when received. Hence, no money out of pocket, but also, no money wasted on unnecessary interest.
