Launched in early 2012, the Apollo Program aims to encourage EV adoption and
increase awareness of wireless charging technology. With the Company's first
generation prototypes installed at six locations across the United States from
March through November, Evatran captured feedback from diverse climates and
charging environments. In the second phase of the Program, kicking off at the
beginning of 2013, Evatran will collect charging data from over 25 production
grade Plugless Power systems installed with partners across the country.

Insights from the first phase of the Trial Program led Evatran to improve
system communication speed, decrease the size of components, and redesign the
user interface of the charging system. The second phase of the Program, with
announced partners SPX Service Solutions, EDTA, and DTE Energy, will focus on
installing production grade hardware in preparation for selling Plugless Power
systems to individual EV drivers in April 2013.

"Our team has worked diligently for the past year to prepare for the
production launch of the world's first wireless charging technology available
to individual EV drivers. Thanks to the help of our Apollo partners, we've
improved the product and we're ready to put the next generation of the
technology into the field. With the second phase of our Trial Program ramping
up, we look forward to welcoming valuable feedback from another group of
strong, industry leading brands like EDTA and DTE Energy," commented Kevin
Beck, Evatran's Vice President of Sales and Business Development.

EDTA will have systems installed at its headquarters in Washington D.C., while
DTE Energy will trial systems in the cold weather climate of Detroit,
Michigan. Each participant in the second phase of the Program will test the
systems for three months, and then have the systems upgraded to final
production quality at the close of the trial.
