Barnabus Energy Ships Solar Project -- Company to Divest Alberta Holdings

SOLANA BEACH, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- December 8, 2005 -- Barnabus Energy, Inc. (OTC BB: BBSE) announced today that its affiliate, Connect Energy Inc. has shipped its first 30kw roof tile solar photovoltaic system to a joint construction project undertaken by the University of California, Davis and Sierra Nevada College.

Valued at approximately 250,000 dollars, the project includes the installation of 900 CE photovoltaic roofing tiles with a combined output of over 31,500 watts of electricity. Connect Energy's BIPV (Building-Integrated PV) system provides the highest commercially available conversion efficiency rating at 20%.

The project comes as a result of a partnership between the University of California, Davis, and Sierra Nevada College to build the Tahoe environmental research and education facility. The structure will be built at the Sierra Nevada College campus in Incline Village, Nevada, and will house offices and laboratories of the UC Davis Tahoe Research Group and the Desert Research Institute; exhibits and educational programs in the Thomas J. Long Foundation Education Center; offices, laboratories and classrooms for Sierra Nevada College students; and conference space for 300 people.

The project is particularly well suited to the location's approximately 300 sunny days per year, and the college's environmental sciences program with its emphasis on "green" building methods alongside its program focus on air and water quality, the response of ecosystems to natural and human influences, global climate change and environmental sustainability.

In other news, Barnabus Energy has approved a term sheet authorizing the sale of its Manyberries natural gas holdings, which include several wells, pipelines, and a small sour gas refinery. The terms of the agreement include a non-refundable deposit of $350,000, which has been received by the Company.

"This sale reflects an appreciated asset which we are now liquidating in order to focus on our core strategic mission, that of becoming a leading force in the renewable energy industry," stated David Saltman, president of Barnabus. "These resources will be directed to Connect Energy, and to our Suncone project, which is nearing completion of the first single cone working prototype under development at Los Alamos, New Mexico, where we will shortly be demonstrating the capabilities of its solar concentrating technology."
