Worldwide Energy Announces Distributor Agreement With Ardenham Energy for Solar PV Modules in the UK

SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, CA and SHANGHAI--(Marketwire - January 13, 2010) - Worldwide Energy and Manufacturing USA, Inc. (OTCBB: WEMU) ("Worldwide Energy"), a U.S.-based solar module technology and China manufacturing company specializing in products for customers in the solar energy, aerospace, wireless telecommunications, medical equipment and automotive industries, today announced that Ardenham Energy, a leading UK renewable energy solutions company, has entered into an exclusive distributor agreement with Worldwide Energy's solar division, AmeriSolar, to market and distribute its range of solar PV modules in the United Kingdom.

Jimmy Wang, chief executive officer of Worldwide Energy and Manufacturing, stated: "This distributor agreement follows our fall 2009 installation of an 82-kilowatt peak 450 AmeriSolar Panel array system in Stratford upon Avon, which was one of the largest solar PV installations in the UK. Our solar division is the only Chinese PV module company represented by Ardenham Energy. Because of this representation agreement, we expect to sell many more modules in the UK in 2010 and in years to come."

Worldwide Energy's solar modules were recently certified by the Microgeneration Certification scheme (MCS PV0018) making them eligible for the UK government's Low Carbon Building Program, Feed-In Tariff, and Code for Sustainable Homes projects.

Worldwide Energy's mono and polycrystalline modules feature a two-bus bar cell design which maximizes the cell's light-absorbing surface area giving the modules more consistent performance. Their solar modules also have a weather-resistant frame constructed of aluminum alloy for endurance in rugged weather conditions and are given a double oxidation coating for additional protection against the elements, providing for longer-lasting, more durable modules.

Worldwide Energy currently sells its advanced solar modules under the AmeriSolar brand name in more than ten countries including the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Portugal, France, Spain, Australia, South Korea, and the United States.
