Sustainable Power Corporation Appoints Daniel R. Bartley as General Counsel

BAYTOWN, TX--(Marketwire - July 11, 2008) - Sustainable Power Corp. (PINKSHEETS: SSTP) today announced that Northern California attorney Daniel Robert Bartley, of Bartley Law Offices, has been selected as outside General Counsel for Sustainable Power Corporation.

Mr. Bartley's 36 years of practice include nine years as in-house counsel with Fortune 100 companies: two years as Corporate Counsel with Foremost-McKesson, Inc. (now "McKesson, Inc."), in San Francisco; and seven years as Western Region Counsel for Container Corporation of America ("CCA"), in Silicon Valley, while CCA was a wholly owned subsidiary of Mobil Corporation. In addition, over his 36-year career, Mr. Bartley has served as outside general counsel for several small companies, including start-ups.

Mr. Bartley, age 59, brings to SSTP experience in the following areas: contracts negotiation and drafting; licensing; sales law; real estate law; government affairs; employment law; food & drug; antitrust; corporate governance; electricity cogeneration; tortuous interference with contractual relations; trade defamation; cybersmear; trade secrets protection; False Claims Act ("FCA") qui tam whistleblower litigation (often entailing close cooperation and coordination with Main Justice); and preparation and presentation of internal preventative corporate compliance programs at plants and offices nationwide.

Examples of high-profile litigation cases Mr. Bartley has prosecuted during the past decade include: an FCA qui tam action alleging fraudulent overcharges in the construction of the Los Angeles County MetroRail subway system; a rare quo warranto action alleging unlawful corporate governance practices at Berkeley-based Pacifica Foundation; and an FCA qui tam action alleging that student recruiting practices by the University of Phoenix are in violation of the U.S. Department of Education's incentive compensation ban for higher education institutions participating in the Student Financial Assistance Program.

The Wall Street Journal, in its December 12, 1999 edition, characterized Mr. Bartley as "a leading practitioner of false-claims and whistleblower cases."

A Kentucky native and a resident of the San Francisco Bay Area since 1977, Mr. Bartley holds a BBA from Eastern Kentucky University. He studied law at Tulane and the University of Kentucky, and received his JD from U.K. in 1972. He is a member of the state bars of California, Florida, and Kentucky. While Mr. Bartley intends to have his office fulfill all obligations to his existing litigation clients and to a privately held corporate client in Burbank, he expects ultimately to be devoting the majority of his professional time to SSTP.

Mr. Bartley asserts: "I feel enormously proud and fortunate to be serving a company on the absolute cutting edge of applying American ingenuity and technological know-how to address our Nation's dire emergency caused our dependence upon foreign oil at a time of Peak Oil. I'm looking forward to playing a role in the negotiation, drafting, and editing of domestic and international contracts that are in the pipeline, in implementing appropriate internal corporate compliance programs as the company grows, and, last but not least, doing my part to advance, preserve and protect the legitimate interests of the shareholders -- most especially minority shareholders who, sometimes at great sacrifice, have shown their faith in the Company by investing in the Company long-term."
