Fidelis Energy Receives Major Investment Commitment and Project Backing

BEVERLY HILLS, CA--(Marketwire - February 8, 2010) - Fidelis Energy Inc. (PINKSHEETS: FDEI) ("Fidelis" or the "Company") announced today that it received a multi-million dollar investment commitment from a private investment consortium to provide funding to the Company for its future growth and expansion. After completing several months of due diligence and negotiations, the investors approved the Company's project selection, its innovative business strategy being executed and the effectiveness of our seasoned management's operations. The consortium gave the Company a vote of confidence with the expectation of earning a significant return on the investment. The formalization of the commitment should be finalized within the next several weeks.

Larry Butler, CFO of Fidelis who arranged the funding, states, "We're very excited because we feel this is a major endorsement by these investors in our new management team and our business objectives. It's part of our ongoing process to restructure the Company for long-term profitability. Under the terms of this proposed agreement, Fidelis management intends to use the proceeds of the investment for working capital, to obtain lines of credit, and to raise additional capital for new acquisitions of other solar and alternative energy projects."

The Company's management believes this commitment will allow them to meet the needs of several potential long-term Solar projects, in the 50 to 80 million dollar range, that their new business development team is currently procuring. With the expectation of future markets and conditions, management believes that the estimated gross revenue generated from these new projects could be approximately $200 to $250 million.

About Fidelis Energy Inc.

Fidelis Energy Inc. ("FDEI") is an energy company focused on developing, constructing and operating solar energy projects exclusively or in partnership with other energy companies. Fidelis is also in the development stage of designing solar photovoltaic (PV) cell technology products and plans to manufacture and distribute these products in the future.

Fidelis owns a unique patent pending solar cell technology based on photovoltaic cells with integral light-transmitting wave guides in a ceramic sleeve. The advantage of this technology is the efficiency of less exposed surface area being required to generate electricity. The light-transmitting particles act as wave guides and allow the sun-exposed conversion area of the solar cell to be shifted readily from horizontal to vertical to capture more sunlight. The ceramic sleeve eliminates the need for expensive vacuum chambers, thereby allowing less expensive materials to be used in solar cell production.

We are developing, with plans to eventually manufacture and market, innovative solar cells and solar power products for a wide range of applications based on our technology that increases light-trapping while enabling a variety of materials to be used. Our technology employs multiple stacked solar cells in a ceramic sleeve that uses nano-particles and crystal wave guides to carry light from the opening down to the last junction in the solar cell. Competitors' processes that use vacuum chambers (instead of a ceramic sleeve) generally don't allow for material substitution because of contamination issues. We believe our technology will also allow manufacturers to quickly and economically shift to new materials if a shortage of any one type of material occurs. In general, our technology will offer a flexible, cost-effective solution for increased light-trapping and will provide increased efficiency.
