MISSISSAUGA, Ontario -- June 19, 2013

Panasonic Eco Solutions Canada has been awarded the contract to design and
build two solar photovoltaic (PV) systems representing 500 kWac (kilowatts of
alternating current) for Central Huron’s REACH Centre and Central Huron
Community Complex (CHCC) in Clinton, Ontario, located along Ontario’s west
coast in the heart of Huron County. The projects will use a total of more than
2,000 Panasonic Ontario-made solar panels and the system is expected to
generate more than 800 MWh (megawatt hours) annually. Both solar PV systems
are scheduled to be constructed by fall 2013.

“Panasonic provided the best bankability and long term protection for our
investment in solar on behalf of the taxpayers and citizens of Central Huron,”
stated Mayor Jim Ginn of the Municipality of Central Huron.

Both solar PV systems will be designed in accordance with the respective
Feed-in-Tariff (FIT) contracts associated with the two locations and the
Ontario FIT Program. The Ontario Power Authority (OPA) developed the FIT
Program to encourage and promote a greater use of renewable energy sources for
electricity generation and include solar PV systems.

For the Central Huron solar portfolio, Panasonic is working with Evergreen
Power Ltd. In addition to the solar panels, the installation includes
Panasonic TV monitors in the lobbies of both buildings with direct links to a
Central Huron branded solar portal. The monitors will provide educational
information about solar, as well as display the amount of energy that the
solar panels are generating on each site.

“The project provides us the opportunity to demonstrate our full, one-stop
solar build program, offering the Municipality and community of Central Huron
peace of mind and the backing of a global brand behind their projects,” said
Walter Buzzelli, Managing Director, Panasonic Eco Solutions Canada Inc.

Recently, Panasonic was ranked number four in Interbrand’s “Best Global Green
Brands 2013”, moving up two spots from number six, and becoming the highest
ranked electronics brand in the report. Panasonic scored especially well in
“Products & Services”, “Governance” and “Operations” in the Green Performance
category.
