NWP Services Corporation Announces Agreement With SolarCity

Company's Team to Bring Alternative, Renewable Solar Energy Solutions to the Multifamily Housing Industry

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - November 5, 2009) - NWP Services Corporation (NWP), a leading provider of utility management solutions in the multifamily housing industry, today announced an agreement with SolarCity, a national leader in solar financing, design, installation, monitoring and related services, whereby the two companies will team to make it easier for property owners and operators to deploy and benefit from onsite solar power generation at their multifamily communities. Together, the companies will identify solutions that overcome the traditional hurdles faced by clients as they consider leveraging unused roof and other available space to generate power onsite.

"For years NWP has been a leader in delivering solutions that reduce, recover and offset the utility spend for our multifamily clients. Now, with technological improvements and the available financial incentives, onsite solar power generation deserves serious consideration as an additional opportunity to improve a property's net operating income," said Michael Radice, president and CEO of NWP. "We sought a partner with a stellar reputation, one that could deliver a full suite of services and meet the financial and installation challenges needed to make solar power a justifiable solution for our clients. Additionally, we required a partner to have the financial and organizational substance to be a nationwide provider as federal, state and local incentives for renewable energy sources grow in prevalence and popularity; we are confident that we have found that partner in SolarCity," added Radice.

"New financing, operations and technology advancements can allow multifamily housing owners in many locations to pay less for clean solar power than they would pay for electricity without solar," said John Lefebvre, SolarCity's vice president of sales and business development. "We're excited to work with NWP, a well-known and trusted name in smart utility management in the multifamily housing industry, to extend new solar power options to multifamily housing operators that can lower their energy costs from day one."

Now, multifamily housing owners and operators can rely upon a trusted source to receive a comprehensive assessment of the physical and financial feasibility of adding onsite solar power generation to their properties. NWP will introduce SolarCity at the upcoming National Multi-Housing Council (NMHC) Apartment Technology Conference to be held November 8-10 at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort & Spa in Phoenix, Arizona.
