1 WHO SHOULD CONSIDER APPLYING FOR A NYSERDA GRANT WITH GROSOLAR? WHAT IS THE INITIAL PROCESS? 1) Speak to grosolar about your high energy use or available property. LARGE POWER USERS such as Towns & Cities or Manufacturers (minimum of $100k/ year) interested in purchasing renewable energy at a fixed rate that is at or below market prices for a year term. No capital cost for the installation is required, and you do not need to utilize your own property. LAND OWNERS who own 5-20 acres of open land that is suitable for large-scale solar projects, and would be interested in leasing the land for years. 2) Together we ll determine site and economic feasibility of a solar project. 3) If a project is feasible, we ll show our commitment to each other in moving forward by signing an LOI (Letter of Intent) or PPA (Power Purchase Agreement). There is no cost to the customer. 4) Once committed, grosolar will begin the interconnection and permitting process, which is required by NYSERDA prior to applying for the grant. WHAT S A GOOD PROJECT? 5) grosolar will manage the grant application process. Under NYSERDA grant requirements, a 1-2 MWac project is most economically attractive and feasible 6) If we are awarded a grant, we ll begin the next stages of developing our solar project! 1.3 MWdc 1,625,000 kwh 180 Homes Powered 1 MWac 200,000 sq ft (approx.) 5 acres INCLUDED RESOURCES: City of Rome Development Case Study Why Solar?

2 City of Rome Project Development: grosolar is the originating Project Developer for the City of Rome Landfill Project. In working with the City, grosolar handled the entire NYSERDA NY Sun Competitive PV Program (PON 2589) application, including detailed technical and financial analysis. During this analysis, grosolar completed a detailed review of the City s utility bills to determine both a cost saving Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) rate for the City and a competitive bid grant for NYSERDA. A significant amount of engineering has already been completed on the capped landfill site. grosolar has analyzed all existing environmental reports and studies for the landfill, and has conceptually designed a system that will minimize disturbance to existing site conditions. grosolar s team of experienced engineers specializes in environmentally sensitive sites, including landfills and brownfields, and has designed the system to meet and exceed all local and national building codes, as well as optimize energy production. Full permitting analysis and a detailed development and construction timeline have been created to ensure the project is finished on or ahead of schedule. Project Permitting: After initiating a request for proposals and interviewing several local firms, grosolar selected Shumaker Engineering & Land Surveying as the subcontractor to manage the environmental engineering and permitting process. Construction & Operations: grosolar will act as the full turnkey Engineering, Procurement and Construction firm and will perform O&M services for the life of the project. Benefits to the City: 1) Lower price electricity provides immediate cost savings on the City of Rome s electricity bill 2) Long term, fixed electricity contract provides price security for 25 years 3) Lease income from otherwise unproductive land 4) Replaces traditional energy production with clean, renewable solar energy Ballasted Racking Example: Clean Harbors Landfill, New Jersey It has been my pleasure to collaborate with the commercial and technical experts at grosolar. This Solar Landfill Project will repurpose otherwise unproductive land and will bring modern energy technology to the City. Joseph R. Fusco, Jr. Mayor, City of Rome System: 2.78 MW System Components: 9,120 Polycrystalline 305W Modules Ballasted Ground Mount, 25 Degrees Two 1 MWac Pad Mounted Inverters Location: Rome, NY grosolar Corporate Offices: 205 Billings Farm Road White River Junction, VT Guilford Road Columbia, MD

3 GROSOLAR COMMERCIAL & UTILITY SOLAR WHY SOLAR? WHY NOW? Rising fossil fuel costs, increased demands on the grid, and advances in manufacturing technology have put solar energy at the forefront of the world s energy future. No other energy technology is able to generate distributed, clean and sustainable energy at a known cost and production profile over a lifetime in excess of 25 years. Due to record low equipment costs and numerous Federal and State level incentives, solar energy can compete and in most cases beat the price of brown power in many areas of the country. BENEFITS OF SOLAR ENERGY 1) Energy Diversification Solar energy is an excellent way to diversify an energy supply portfolio and hedge against future rises in energy prices. 2) Lower Cost Solar energy can compete and beat the current price of power in many areas of the country. 3) Fixed Price for Power Solar energy plants produce a reliable and guaranteed output for 25+ years. An investment in solar energy is for the long-term and truly equates to a fixed price of power. 4) Manage Demand Solar energy can be deployed near load centers and designed to help manage peak demands further reducing the costs to end users. 5) Sustainability Solar energy can help organizations meet or exceed their internal sustainability goals as well as those imposed by their states, customers, and/or constituents. 6) Social Responsibility Solar energy is in demand by people around the world. People truly value clean, renewable energy and promote organizations that share these values. BENEFITS OF A SOLAR POWER PURCHASE AGREEMENT (PPA) A Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) model is often an ideal method of going solar. A PPA utilizes a third party to finance and own operate the solar system. A PPA benefits those wanting to go solar through: No upfront capital investment No operational risk Long-term, fixed energy price often lower than the current cost of power Maximized value of tax incentives Future options for system ownership grosolar is an expert at developing solar energy projects under a PPA ownership structure. This is the same development structure that grosolar has used throughout the country and recommends for many of our potential customers. Under our PPA arrangement grosolar will develop, procure, construct, finance, and provide the long-term operate the solar generation plant with no capital outlay or longterm operational risk to the customer.

5 Solar Energy Supply Options for Municipalities Longwood Gardens, PA Open greenfields and undeveloped land allow for large scale solar projects. Typically a minimum of five or six acres will equate to a 1 MW project. Sterling Municipal Solar, MA Community residents may have unused farms or land to be used for solar projects. The municipal receives energy savings, the resident earns lease payments. Lake County Solar, IN Oftentimes large industrial and commercial businesses have open land or rooftops; similar to residents, they also benefit from lease payments. Benefits of Solar PV Projects for Municipalities Worcester College, MA School systems and universities provide a good location for projects and educational opportunities for students. About 200,000 sq ft on a roof equates to a 1 MW project. Clean Harbors Landfill, NJ Take advantage of municipality or privately owned landfills and brownfields - a great location for creating renewable energy and a use of otherwise non-viable land. - No upfront capital costs - Immediate savings and revenue for the municipality - Projects can be located on leased or owned property and benefit all project participants with revenues, savings, and clean energy Learn more about adding solar to your community: Billings Farm Road White River Junction, VT Guilford Road Columbia, MD

6 Solar Systems on Brownfields Capped Landfill Design of Photovoltaic System on a Capped Landfill: Inverters & Interconnection converts DC to 13kV AC Above Ground Electrical Raceways no cap penetration The engineering and design of the photovoltaic (PV) system considers the sensitive design elements of the landfill cap system and the vegetation. Special consideration is placed on the bearing pressure, storm water management, and protection of the cover to prevent erosion or damage. The design accounts for the operations and maintenance requirements of the PV system and the landfill cap. Racking System & Electrical Raceways: The module racking structure is mounted on concrete ballasts. The ballast is designed to minimize bearing pressure and protect the cap system and the vegetative cover. Electrical raceways are constructed above ground to avoid penetration of the cap and special consideration is taken to provide access for maintenance activities such as grass cutting. Storm Water & Landfill Gas Management: Ballasted Racking Structure no cap disturbance The PV system design considers site features such as storm water management and gas venting and gas collection systems. Special consideration for worker protection may be discussed during the design of the PV system and the site-specific health and safety plans.
