Borrego Solar Systems to Join Panel Discussion About Developing Trends and Future Opportunities for Solar Power at the Green West Expo

Leading Solar and Investment Executives Will Examine Recent Developments in Construction Methods, Technology, Rebate Programs and Financing Options for Organizations and Homeowners Interested in Installing Solar Energy Systems

EL CAJON, CA--(Marketwire - May 12, 2008) - Borrego Solar Systems, Inc., a leading designer and installer of grid-connected solar electric power systems, today announced that President Mike Hall will participate in a panel discussion entitled "Solar Power: Technologies, Applications and Potential" during the Green West Expo, May 20-22, 2008 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Hall will join an executive from Sharp Solar Systems and a renewable energy financing expert from Novogradac & Company, LLP to analyze how recent innovations in construction methods, progressive rebate and tax credit programs, advancements in technology and creative financing options are helping to further position solar as a cost-effective, long-term solution to the escalating energy crisis.

"As the cost of traditional energy continues to increase at an astronomical rate, more and more homeowners and businesses are exploring solar power as an alternative energy source," said Hall. "However, because solar is sometimes a new, unfamiliar topic for people, there are typically a number questions -- and even misperceptions -- about what it truly means to go solar. Panel discussions like this are vital to help attendees understand both the basic information about solar energy as well as to educate them about new technologies, incentive and rebate programs, installation procedures and financing options that will make solar an even more cost-effective, practical energy option for years to come."

Borrego Solar will be exhibiting at the Green West Expo at booth #738. Media interested in speaking with Borrego Solar at the event to learn more about advancements in solar technology, installation design and financing options can contact Schwartz Communications at (415) 512-0770 or
