Fast Growing AgriSolar Plans Introduction of Its Solar Powered Insect Elimination Systems Into the European Market

DENVER, CO--(Marketwire - Sep 27, 2011) - AgriSolar Solutions, Inc. (OTCBB: AGSO) today announced an aggressive European rollout of its patented, pesticide-free, solar powered insect elimination systems for use on commercial farms, orchards and vineyards. AgriSolar plans to open several European sales and distribution offices in conjunction with its European partners in order to capitalize on the enormous potential of the European market for effective alternatives to traditional insecticides.

"The time is right for us to significantly expand our distribution considering the push to implement Europe's Pesticide Framework Directive, which aims to reduce the risks and impacts of pesticides on human health," commented Mr. Liang Chao Wei, AgriSolar's Chief Executive Officer. "Our state-of-the-art insect control systems have seen great success in the Chinese agricultural market, which has allowed us to grow our revenues very quickly. Additionally, we have recently added a meaningful amount of additional manufacturing capability that will allow us to produce in the volumes necessary to satisfy the additional strong demand we are expecting within the European market.

The European Parliament has passed sweeping legislation known as the Pesticides Framework Directive on the sustainable use of pesticides, which aims to reduce the risks and impacts of pesticides on human health and the environment by promoting the use of alternative pest management methods that give priority to non-chemical methods, including organic farming and integrated pest management that keep pesticide levels as low as possible.

Over recent periods AgriSolar has seen rapid growth. Revenue for the three-month period ending June 30, 2011 was $5.6 million, a 147% increase from the previous quarter ended March 2011 and a 90% increase on a year-over-year quarterly basis. Gross profit increased to $1.6 million from $1.0 million during the year ago period. Quarterly comprehensive income for the quarter was $423,482, or $.01 per share (basic), compared to a loss during the June 2010 quarter. The Company plans to augment its already robust growth rate via international expansion into Europe, as is being announced today, and into North and South America.
