Yingli Green Energy Announces "Kick It With The Champions" Sweepstakes To Celebrate The U.S. Women's National Soccer Team's Historic Victory In London





BAODING, China and SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 22, 2012 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Yingli Green Energy Holding Company Limited (NYSE: YGE) ("Yingli Green Energy" or the "Company"), a leading solar energy company and one of the world's largest vertically integrated photovoltaic manufacturers, which markets its products under the brand " Yingli Solar", today announced the launch of its"Kick it with the Champions" sweepstakes. Open to the public, the winner and ten friends will receive a private soccer clinic led by two (2) members of the U.S. Women's National Soccer Team.

Soccer fans can enter for a chance to win the backyard clinic at www.kickitwiththechamps.com. All contest entrants must be over 18 years of age, though persons under age 18 may participate. Weather and location will be taken into consideration; off-site and indoor options are available. 

"There is significant overlap between the rapidly expanding soccer and solar markets in America.  In fact, the top four solar states are also where the top soccer fans are located," said Helena Kimball, Yingli Green Energy Americas' Head of Marketing. "Many consumers and homeowners do not realize how affordable solar energy has become. With the rise of third-party financing, more people qualify for zero-to-little money down options for their homes. This sweepstakes is a great way to boost awareness, and to support our national sports heroes."

"We believe in giving back to our future generations through access to clean energy, and through healthy lifestyle choices like soccer," commented Robert Petrina, Managing Director of Yingli Green Energy Americas. "We hope that the 'Kick it with the Champions' sweepstakes is an inspiration to fans and athletes across the U.S., and we look forward to sharing our passion with the lucky winner and their friends." 

The online sweepstakes is open until Tuesday, December 18th, at 11:59 p.m. ET. The winner will be drawn on or about December 28th, and the backyard clinic will be staged in the spring of 2013, depending on the winner's location. For full contest rules and to enter to win, please visit www.kickitwiththechamps.com.
