Fidelis Ships First PV Solar Modules Order Worth $52.5 Million

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - November 22, 2010) - Fidelis Energy Inc. (PINKSHEETS: FDEI) today announced it has manufactured and shipped more than 23 megawatts (MW) of its photovoltaic (PV) solar modules, to its first customer, TinSol Energy (pty) Ltd. ("TSEL") in South Africa.

Fidelis has begun production at its manufacturing facility in China earlier this year.  The Company accelerated the manufacturing process and came ahead of its anticipated shipping date, scheduled for the first quarter of 2011. This shipment is the first of many to follow in order to complete TSEL's long-term solar module supply agreement for 207 megawatts (MW) of PV Solar modules worth $475 million.

The Company expects shipment to be received and $52.5 Million paid in full by December 15, 2010. Total revenues by the end of Q1 2011 are expected to be in the range of $95 Million to $160 Million based on the current Company's manufacturing capabilities.

"We are pleased to deliver a quarter of robust growth," said James Poole, Fidelis' CEO and President. "During this fourth quarter, we achieved record revenues and shipments, both of which exceeded our previous targets. We continued to execute on our solar integration strategy, increasing our capacities and improving control over manufacturing processes and costs. Fidelis has also secured additional solar module contracts for 2011 with both existing and new leading solar companies. We expect to continue our strong momentum in the first quarter of 2011 and believe we are well positioned to become a leader in the solar industry."

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.
