SAN FRANCISCO -- June 27, 2013

Clean Power Finance (CPF), the leading provider of financial services and
software for the distributed solar industry, today announced Duke Energy, the
largest electric power holding company in the U.S., as its latest strategic
growth equity investor. Duke joins existing CPF equity investors Edison
International and two unnamed utility holding companies.

"Clean Power Finance is a leader in the rooftop solar distributed generation
market -- one of the most dynamic and fastest-growing spaces in our industry,"
said Jim Rogers, chairman and CEO of Duke Energy.

“There are a number of ways CPF helps power companies invest in and profit
from distributed solar,” said Nat Kreamer, chief executive officer of Clean
Power Finance. “Duke’s investment is a vote of confidence in our business and
the future of distributed solar.”

As part of its ongoing efforts to educate electric utilities about the value
and benefits of distributed solar, CPF will present a joint webinar with SEPA
(the Solar Electric Power Association) on August 8 at 2:00 p.m. ET. The
webinar will inform SEPA utility members and non-members about how they can
invest in distributed solar generation as well as benefit from distributed
solar operating on their grids.

“Many electric utilities do not know how they can take advantage of third
party owned distributed solar,” said Kreamer. “CPF is educating the power
industry about distributed solar’s economic and physical advantages.”
