TUCSON, Ariz. -- December 11, 2012

Global Solar Energy, Inc. (“Global Solar” or the “Company”), a leading
manufacturer of CIGS flexible solar technology and portable solar products,
announced today that the Company has taken cost-cutting measures as it
continues to progress the previously announced sale process and evaluate
strategic options.

Global Solar has reduced its work force by about 70% to preserve operational
and production flexibility. The reduction in force consisted primarily of
employees dedicated to Global Solar’s roofing product line. Key technical
staff and management have been retained, as well as a production team focused
on select customer orders.

Related to recent events, CEO of Global Solar, Dr. Jeffrey Britt stated, “We
continue to work toward a solution which will preserve Global Solar’s
industry-leading CIGS technology and production capabilities. We have had a
very strong level of investor interest which has been predicated on Global
Solar’s high quality products and technological strength.”
