Capstone Receives First Order in Slovenia for Two C200s From Regional Hospital

CHATSWORTH, Calif., June 20, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Capstone Turbine
Corporation ( (Nasdaq:CPST), the world's leading clean
technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, today announced the
first order for Capstone MicroTurbines® in Slovenia for two C200s to be
installed at Splošna bolnišnica Novo Mesto, the general hospital in Novo
Mesto, Slovenia.

Capstone's distributor for Croatia and Slovenia -- Liabach -- secured the
order and will commission the units this fall.

The C200s, which will be installed on the hospital's rooftop, will operate in
a combined cooling, heating, and power (CCHP) application to lower emissions,
increase energy efficiency, and ensure reliable power generation for the
377-bed regional hospital. The natural gas-fueled microturbines will be
grid-connected and provide electricity, heating, and hot domestic water for
the facility.

The project was funded in part by the Council of the European Union to help
the hospital meet international efficiency standards. The EU is aiming for a
20 percent cut in Europe's annual primary energy consumption by 2020.
Following installation of the C200s, hospital officials anticipate natural gas
efficiencies to increase from 34 percent to 73 percent.

"The microturbines' ultra-low greenhouse gas and noise emissions, low
vibration, and low maintenance costs, paired with their ability to withstand
Slovenia's harsh climate, make them the best technology for the hospital,"
said Jim Crouse, Capstone's Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing."
The C200 features Capstone's patented oil free air bearing technology, remote
monitoring and diagnostic capabilities, and integrated utility synchronization
and protection. The small, modular systems allow for easy and low-cost

"Worldwide interest in Capstone's C200 product continues to grow," said Darren
Jamison, Capstone's President and Chief Executive Officer. "This order not
only introduces Capstone into yet another new marketplace, but also
exemplifies Capstone's global appeal and diversity. Our value proposition of
high reliability, long maintenance intervals, and low total cost of ownership
provides an unrivaled product that makes sound business sense for countless
