SHANGHAI -- April 8, 2013

Hanwha SolarOne Co. Ltd. (Hanwha SolarOne), a top-10 global photovoltaic
manufacturer of high-quality solar modules at competitive costs, today
announced the global launch of its new generation modules – the HSL Series.
Compared to previous generation modules, these offer a smaller and lighter
design, higher power output and enhanced durability, with new features like
anti-PID (potential induced degradation) technology, anti-salt mist corrosion
and increased snow and wind loads.

“The launch of Hanwha SolarOne’s new polycrystalline modules marks a
significant milestone in the evolution of our product offerings. Made with
Hanwha SolarOne’s industry-leading technology, these modules deliver high
performance at a competitive cost to meet the needs of our customers,” said
Hanwha SolarOne President Min-Su Kim. “As the world’s most reliable partner in
solar, we will continue to develop a wider range of industry-leading
technology and solutions that provide the best value for our customers.”

Hanwha SolarOne’s HSL Series is built for utility, commercial and residential
applications. Approximately 2 percent smaller than the previous generation,
these modules yield an average 2 percent higher module efficiency. With 30
percent greater protection against snow and 65 percent better wind resistance,
they can withstand a snow load of up to 7000pa and a wind load of up to
4000pa. Additionally, at 1.5kg lighter than the previous generation, the new
HSL Series is easier and more cost-effective to pack, transport and install.
HSL60 Poly and HSL72 Poly are the first among HSL Series modules to have
passed the stringent TUV Rheinland PID test.

Backed by a 25-year linear power warranty and 12-year workmanship warranty,
HSL Series modules have enhanced quality assurance with International
Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) and Underwriters Laboratories (UL)
certification, signaling Hanwha SolarOne’s commitment to delivering
high-quality products to every region in the world.
