Lamb Energy Chooses Sharp to Go Solar

Company Selects Sharp's 216 Watt Polycrystalline Modules for Roof-Mounted PV System

RIVERSIDE, CA--(Marketwire - October 11, 2010) -  Lamb Energy has installed a solar roof array utilizing panels from Sharp® on the company's headquarters in Riverside, California. An expert in solar energy solutions, Lamb provides turnkey renewable energy solutions to clients in the commercial and government space. Lamb has worked on projects for clients such as the Naval Post Graduate School, Marine Corps Air Station, and Naval Air Weapons Station. Lamb selected Sharp panels for the project on their headquarters because of their superior performance, efficiency and durability.

The seventeen and a half kilowatt system will power approximately sixty percent of the building's annual energy consumption with clean, renewable energy. The solar roof array will prevent the emission of 19.5 metric tons of CO2 into the atmosphere each year, offsetting the consumption of more than 45 barrels of oil annually (source: epa.gov). Lamb took advantage of the Riverside Public Utilities $3 per Watt solar rebate, saving the company more than $44,000 on the solar installation.

"It's the ultimate vote of confidence when a company that specializes in solar installations selects our panels for their own building." said Eric Hafter, senior vice president, Sharp Solar Energy Solutions Group. "We value our relationship with Lamb and we're delighted that they chose Sharp panels to power the solar array at their headquarters."

"Sharp panels offer the reliability and superior engineering we trust in our customer installations, so it was the obvious choice to use their solar panels on our own project," said Matt Shea, Vice President of Business Development at Lamb Energy. "Sharp powers more homes and businesses than any other solar panel manufacturer worldwide and we're happy that our headquarters is now a part of the clean energy revolution," he said.

LAMB Energy installed 81 Sharp ND-216UC1 216 watt polycrystalline modules in a roof mounted system. Using breakthrough technology, made possible by nearly 50 years of proprietary research and development, these modules are designed to withstand rigorous operating conditions and offers high power output per square foot of solar array.
