3 SunPower Overview Worldwide footprint Over 550 systems on 4 continents Over 450 MW installed Over 85 patents and 25 years of R&D Over a quarter century of experience World record cell efficiency of 22.4% Ramping to 1GW annual production capacity 2012 Publicly traded (NASDAQ) Profitable and growing, with a strong balance sheet 5,000 Employees: all we do is solar Established and Proven Technology Leader

4 SunPower at a Glance Regional HQ Regional Office Germany Hawaii California New Jersey Spain Switzerland Italy South Korea Philippines Singapore Australia 4

5 Key Selling Features of SunPower 1. Aesthetics (Elegance.) Arguably the most elegant looking panel available today 2. Highest Efficiency Most efficient solar module commercially available in the world Fit up to 50% more modules on your roof than thin film 3. Better Energy Yield Broad spectral response Leading temperature co-efficient 4. Leading Industry Warranty 10 year product warranty 25 year power output warranty 5

6 Revolutionary Cell Technology SunPower s all-backcontactn-typesolar cell design is patented, hard to replicate, and provides industry leading efficiencies of up to 23% All-Back Side Contacts Positive and negative electrical contacts are made using alternating inter-digitated fingers that conduct current to buses on the cell edges Front Side No Grid lines By locating the electrical contacts on the back surface, SunPower achieves conversion efficiencies of 22%, up to 50% higher than conventional solar cells

7 Record Cell Efficiencies SunPower s all-back contact solar cells achieve production efficiencies of up to 23% and over 22% on average -50% more than conventional solar cells SunPower Cell 22.4% Efficient Conventional Mono Cell 15% Efficient Conventional Multi Cell 14% Efficient 7

8 How SunPower Cells Achieve Record Efficiencies 1. Maximum light capture Up to10% more sunlight on front surface 2. Reduced Resistive losses Back contacts enable wider and thicker, lower resistance contacts 3. Minimum Recombination Loss Passivating Silicon dioxide on front and back of cell minimises recombination loss 4. Maximum Absorption of Light Back-side mirror gives photons a second chance to generate power 8

9 More Power From The Same Area SunPower Conventional Mono-crystalline Conventional Multi-crystalline 225 Watt Panel 181W / m Watt Panel 137W / m Watt Panel 120W / m 2

10 Higher Efficiency means More Power SunPower panels provide up to 50% more power per unit area than conventional crystalline solar panels and 100% more than thin film SunPower Conventional Thin Film 300 Watt Panel (184 W / m 2 ) 215 Watt Panel (128 W / m 2 ) 65 Watt Panel (90 W / m 2 ) 10

11 Installation Advantages Configurations under 1.5kW Solar Credits Scheme 5x300W = 1.5kW ~5.5m 7x210W = 1.47kW ~6m 8x195W = 1.56kW ~7.2m 9x170W = 1.53kW ~7.7m Less framing, less installation time, more space for upgrades or a solar hot water system 11

12 High Efficiency Leads to Real Benefits Less space on roof is needed Or more power from the same roof area

13 Energy Yield Not all solar Watts are created equal Some put out more energy for each rated Watt This is known as yield and depends on a few factors Spectral response - Low light-performance Temperature performance - No initial degradation Why should your customers care? This is what they pay for on their energy bill, and this is what a solar system offsets. 1 Watt (SunPower) 1 Watt (other) 13

14 Broad Spectral Response SunPower Cells capture more light from the blue and infra-red parts of the spectrum, enabling higher performance in overcast and low-light conditions 14

15 Higher Performance at Higher Temperatures Due to lower temperature coefficients and lower normal cell operating temperatures (NOCT), SunPower panels generate more energy at higher temperatures compared to standard c-si modules Temp Coefficient: SunPower -0.38% / C Std c-si -0.47% / C NOCT: SunPower 45 C +/-2 Std c-si 47 C +/ (C ) 15

16 Third Party Validation- Best Energy Performance Independent testsshow that SunPower Solar Panels deliver the most energy over time (kwhs/kwp) at sites throughout the world 9% more than Poly-Si 7% more than Poly-Si ASU CREST Dept. of Energy (DOE) University of Stuttgart (IPE) University of Cyprus 7% more than HIT (Sanyo) 16% more than thin film 7% more than CdTe (First Solar) 22% more than CIGS 7% more than a-si (Mitsubishi) 16% more than Mono-Si (BP Solar) Independent Sites 16

17 SunPower Energy Yield (kwh/kwp) Higher than Competition 23% more 12% more 5% more 17

18 How SunPower Cells Produce More Energy per Watt 1. Superior Light Capture Broader spectral response Better low-light performance 2. Higher Performance at Higher Temperatures Lower temperature coefficients than conventional crystalline 3. No Light Induced Degradation (LID) SunPower cells does not suffer a initial ~3% degradation when first exposed to sunlight 4. Low Rate of Degradation Studies show that crystalline modules degrade less year to year than thin film 18

19 SunPower A Proven Technology SunPower wins major projects abroad and in this country. Nellis Air Force Base, Las Vegas NV 14MW 19

20 Also Proven Closer to Home Crowne Plaza, Alice Springs, NT 305kW Clean Energy Council, ATRAA 2009 Award for Excellence Innovation in a Solar PV System

21 SunPower Warranty Advantage Industry-leading workmanship warranty - SunPower 10 year workmanship guarantee - Most competitors offer 1-5 year warranty (eg.: Sharp only one year) Output production warranty - 12 years you will get no less than 90% of full rated capacity, most competitors offer 10 years - 25 years you will get no less than 80% of full rated capacity Transferrable All parts from SunPower no finger pointing

22 What We can do to Assist Your Sales Our technical support team can provide quick turn-arounds on: Design/configuration checks Output estimates Direct contact with the end customer to explain technical concepts if they require more information 1800 SUNPOWER ( ) 22

23 In Closing... The four key selling features of SunPower Aesthetics Efficiency Energy Yield Warranty Talk about SunPower s proven track record worldwide and in Australia Case studies are available Lean on our technical support division for assistance whenever necessary 23
