Letter to President-elect Barack Obama From Sustainable Power Corp.

BAYTOWN, TX--(Marketwire - December 23, 2008) - Sustainable Power Corp. (PINKSHEETS: SSTP) advised that it has forwarded the following correspondence to President-elect Barack Obama:

President-elect Barack Obama,

We congratulate you on your historic election as our next President. Your hard fought, yet respectful, dignified, and even-mannered campaign highlighted the characteristics that will serve you well in the great challenge you have accepted. As innovators in the technology of biofuel production, we appreciate your strong interest in this field. We feel we can help you, our country, and our planet by providing innovations that will achieve the maximum benefits with no undesirable social, economic, or environmental side affects.

We must address some major challenges if the holistic effect of biofuels is to be positive.

--  The debates about food-based biofuel feedstocks and the effect on
    hunger, food prices, agricultural lands, and rainforests is ongoing and
--  Recent studies suggest it takes more energy to produce some biofuels
    than they provide.
--  Some biofuels use considerably more potable water than the volume of
    biofuel produced.
--  Biodiesel production uses fossil based methanol, thus linking costs
    and availability to that of fossil fuels.
--  Certain biofuels gel or even solidify at typical winter temperatures.

We believe we have solved all the above problems by producing biofuels which:

1. Are produced from non-food feedstocks such as agricultural and municipal
   solid waste.
2. Can power gasoline/diesel engines and heat buildings.
3. Have been refined in existing facilities to produce bioplastic
   feedstocks, bioasphalts, biogasoline, biokerosene, biojetfuels, and
   lighter biodistillates.
4. Remain viable liquids at temperatures suitable for use in high altitude
5. Contain high levels of energy in their gaseous state.
6. Can replace coal.
7. Provide high carbon biochars that can restore barren lands to
   agricultural use, increase crop yields, improve crop nutrient density,
   reduce global warming outgassing from the soils, and sequester CO2.
8. Are economically viable across a broad range of market conditions.

We hope you find the attached materials compelling enough to consider including the Rivera Process in the list of biofuel initiatives eligible for any government assistance that may become available. Best wishes for an historically significant and world changing Presidency.

                   Very sincerely,

                   /s/ M. Richard Cutler

                   M. Richard Cutler, President and Chief Executive Officer
