SPI Solar Signs MOU With The Taneo Fund To Build 23 Megawatts Across Greece

Stocks in this article: SOPW

SPI Solar (“SPI”) ( OTCBB:SOPW) a leading vertically integrated photovoltaic (“PV”) solar developer, today announced that the Company recently entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (“MOU”) with two fund management companies in Greece for the sole purpose of developing utility-scale solar energy facilities (“SEF”) across Greece. Thermi-Taneo Venture Capital Fund (“Thermi”) and AIMS-Taneo Fund (“AIMS”) are part of the New Economic Development Fund known as the Taneo Fund. The Taneo Fund is a Greek-state sponsored, privately funded and independently managed fund-of-funds which makes venture-capital investments in Greece and Europe. The agreement establishes a minimum commitment for Taneo to provide 23 megawatts of SEF projects for SPI to design and build, and sets as a goal for Taneo and SPI to potentially develop a total of 100 megawatts in SEF projects across Greece.

Under the MOU, SPI will provide engineering, procurement and construction (“EPC”) services while Thermi and AIMS will provide equity to own and operate up to 23 megawatts of projects; all of which are fully permitted and ready for construction. SPI will be arranging debt financing for the projects through the Company’s relationship with LDK Solar. The SEFs resulting from the MOU will use LDK’s high-performance modules.

The MOU provides a mechanism for SPI to more than triple its development opportunities across Greece. “We are very pleased to have this agreement in place. It represents a significant opportunity for SPI and all parties involved,” said Steve Kircher, CEO for SPI Solar. “We share common goals with Thermi and AIMS; namely to bring large-scale solar development projects to Greece along with the economic and environmental benefits they deliver. The portfolio of projects this agreement represents will allow us to do just that,” Mr. Kircher concluded.

“We are very pleased to have SPI Solar as our development partner for these large-scale projects across Greece,” said Nikos Haritakis, CEO of the New Economic Development Fund. “We look forward to getting started with several of them right away. It is a privilege to be able to help my country with new clean energy jobs and to be able to provide a reliable and sustainable source of electricity we all can benefit from.”
