Sustainable Energy and Innovative Air Solutions Partner to Deliver First PARALEX™ Solar PV Solutions to Ontario Market

-Partnership Targets 5MW for 2010 in Ontario's Emerging Marketplace for Smaller Distributed Renewable Energy Systems-

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 8, 2010) - Sustainable Energy Technologies Ltd (TSX VENTURE:STG) ("Sustainable Energy" or the "Company") and Innovative Air Solutions Inc. ("Innovative Air") a Toronto and Vancouver based green energy solutions provider, today announced that they have partnered to supply up to 5MW of PARALEXTM solar PV generators featuring Bosch Solar thin film PV modules to the Ontario market in 2010.

The first delivery of 10 systems or a total 200kw of PARALEX solar generators will begin in June and is expected to ramp quickly as the first sites deliver strong economic results to their owners. 

"Sustainable Energy's PARALEXTM solar generator is ideal for our micro-fit and commercial customers" said Geoffrey Smith, CEO of Innovative Air. "Using the patented SUNERGY inverter, PARALEXTM minimizes the typical solar system application constraints, while delivering maximum energy yield with an all important, low voltage safety advantage. When combined with a globally trusted solar panel brand like Bosch Solar, the solution exceeds our customers are expectations."

Innovative Air is a Canadian company with a mission to provide innovative micro-generation renewable energy and energy efficient solutions to agricultural, commercial, and institutional buildings. In addition to delivering medium-scale commercial solar and geo-thermal projects, Innovative Air has an extensive network of renewable energy dealers in Ontario who target the rural and residential customer for solar projects.

"The partnership with Innovative Air is an important milestone for Sustainable Energy, marking our first PARALEX sales into the Ontario market. With this agreement we have now established a major distribution channel into the extensive, micro-fit, small solar marketplace under Ontario's Green Energy Act" said Michael Carten, Chairman and Acting CEO of Sustainable Energy. "Innovative Air's management team has an excellent track record, impeccable reputation, and the critical construction resources in Ontario to maximize the opportunity in the green energy space."

Sustainable Energy's new PARALEXTM product line combines the patented SUNERGYTM low voltage inverter and the premium, high efficiency Bosch Solar amorphous silicon, thin film PV modules to deliver higher energy yields, reduce installation costs and enable the industry's first inherently safe solar PV system. The inherent safety of the very low system operating voltages enabled by PARALEXTM make it ideal for schools, public buildings, residential buildings and other applications where public safety is a driver.

About Sustainable Energy Technologies Ltd: Sustainable Energy (www.sustainableenergy.com ) designs, manufactures and distributes power inverters for grid-connected solar PV systems under the SUNERGYTM trademark. Advanced power inverters are a critical enabler of all modern solar PV power systems converting the direct current ("DC") power output of the solar PV modules into the high quality alternating current ("AC") power required by the power grid. Advanced power inverters also optimize the performance of the solar PV modules and maintain the integrity and safety of the interconnection with the power grid.

PARALEXTM (www.paralexsolar.com) is a solar power system architecture enabling solar modules to be wired in a parallel array. Using Sustainable Energy's patented SUNERGYTM inverter technology, the PARALEXTM architecture enables each solar module to operate independently of any other module in the system delivering 5-15% increased energy yield, without the expensive hardware and continuing maintenance cost of micro-inverter products. Every module delivers its maximum power potential while eliminating the string inverter impact of shading, soiling and other real world factors.

The extra low operating voltage of the SUNERGY platform enables a system architecture that is inherently safe and that can be installed and maintained by most building trades without the need for custom design, significantly reducing the installed system cost and increasing investor yields.

Sustainable Energy's technologies are the subject of multiple patents issued by and pending with the US Patent and Canadian Patent Offices.
