Xunlight Supplies 208 KW of Solar Modules for Two European Rooftop Projects

TOLEDO, OH--(Marketwire - Dec 19, 2011) - Xunlight Corporation ("Xunlight"), an industry leader in the design, development and manufacture of flexible and lightweight thin-film silicon solar modules, announced today that it has sold 208 KW of its powerful solar panels through European channel partners for two rooftop installations in Europe.

Xunlight's modules will be installed on the rooftops of facilities located in Pezinok, Slovakia and Spilimbergo, Italy. Xunlight has supplied 360 of its lightweight, flexible XR36 291W photovoltaic modules for each of these 104 KW installations. These modules were assembled in Xunlight's Kunshan, China facility using triple-junction thin film solar cells manufactured in the United States in its 25 MW roll-to-roll solar cell production line located in Toledo, Ohio.

"We are pleased that Xunlight modules have been selected for these projects," said Dr. Xunming Deng, Xunlight President and CEO. "We are seeing increasing demand for our products. Since Xunlight modules can be easily integrated into roofing systems and classified as innovative, projects utilizing Xunlight modules will qualify for the highest available subsidies intended to incentivize building-integrated photovoltaics in many markets."

Xunlight's lightweight photovoltaic modules, just 2.6 kilograms per square meter, are ideal for installation on commercial and industrial rooftops, especially those with low load bearing capabilities. They can be quickly adhered directly to roofing membranes without penetration. They require no mounting frames and produce virtually no additional wind loads.

Xunlight recently completed a 220 KW demonstration project utilizing its flexible solar panels in partnership with Trina Solar Limited (NYSE: TSL).
