ROANOKE, Va. -- January 15, 2013

TMEIC Corporation in Roanoke, Va. has reached 100 Megawatts in orders in the
Photovoltaic business - enough clean energy to power over 30,000 households
for one year.

This milestone demonstrates TMEIC’s commitment to developing its solar
business in the American Market. These orders are a direct result of
introducing the new Solar Ware® product line to meet the needs of the US
Utility Scale market. Over 70 MW will be commissioned by the end of 2012 with
the remainder in the first quarter of 2013.

TMEIC’s Solar Ware^® product line includes high efficiency 100 kW to 630 kW
inverters that can be integrated into 1.0 MW to 2.6 MW blocks for utility
scale PV installations. TMEIC also provides Main Site Control for site power
limit, slew control and power factor compensation.

Built on decades of engineering experience with power electronics, Solar
Ware^® inverters offer the industry’s most advanced grid management in an
efficient, compact footprint. The TMEIC Solar Ware^® product line includes:

  *Solar Ware^® 630 kW inverter – MPPT operating range from 540 to 950 V
  *Solar Ware^® 500 kW inverter – MPPT operating range from 450 to 950 V

    entire PV installation.

“Reaching 100 MW in PV orders within two years is a big accomplishment,” says
