sPower Acquires Tioga Energy

Press Release

July 9, 2013

Salt Lake City — Sustainable Power Group (“sPower”) has acquired the assets of Tioga Energy, Inc. Tioga Energy has constructed and operated facilities across seven states since 2007, which are installed on schools, municipal buildings, and commercial and industrial facilities using adjacent land, parking lots and rooftops.

sPower’s acquisition of Tioga’s assets comes on the heels of an acquisition and expansion plan it has been executing since its inception. sPower now operates photovoltaic solar arrays in Arizona, California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Indiana, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, and Utah. In addition to the operating assets, sPower has acquired all intellectual property owned by Tioga Energy including its model SurePath Solar Power Purchase Agreement, which has become a widely adopted industry model form.

Tioga’s projects were financed by HSH Nordbank, PNC Bank, De Lage Landen and Wells Fargo, which all supported the transaction. sPower is stepping into the shoes of Tioga for the existing projects and will continue to service the project financing obligations and operate the projects in partnership with the banks.

“We are pleased to have such a strong and experienced group as sPower take over our projects,” said Paul Detering, former CEO of Tioga. “We know that sPower will be a good steward of what we built and we are proud to turn our valuable customers over to a proven leader in the solar industry.”

“The purchase of the Tioga assets demonstrates sPower’s commitment to the long-term success of the solar industry and to sPower’s continued growth,” said Ryan Creamer, CEO of sPower. “Distributed solar is a key component in the overall solution to our nation’s energy future. This acquisition increases our overall breadth and ability to deliver the highest quality distributed generation projects and we are excited for the new relationships and partners we have developed throughout this process.”
