Plug Power Inc. Safe Harbor Statement

This communication contains statements that are not historical facts and are
considered forward-looking within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities
Act and Section 21E of the Exchange Act. These forward-looking statements
contain projections of our future results of operations or of our financial
position or state other forward-looking information. We believe that it is
important to communicate our future expectations to our investors. However,
there may be events in the future that we are not able to accurately predict
or control and that may cause our actual results to differ materially from the
expectations we describe in our forward-looking statements. Investors are
cautioned not to unduly rely on forward-looking statements because they
involve risks and uncertainties, and actual results may differ materially from
those discussed as a result of various factors, including, but not limited to:
the risk that we continue to incur losses and might never achieve or maintain
profitability, the risk that we expect we will need to raise additional
capital to fund our operations and such capital may not be available to us;
the risk that we do not have enough cash to fund our operations to
profitability and if we are unable to secure additional capital, we may need
to reduce and/or cease our operations; the risk that a "going concern" opinion
from our auditors, KPMG LLP, could impair our ability to finance its
operations through the sale of equity, incurring debt, or other financing
alternatives; the recent restructuring plan we adopted may adversely impact
management's ability to meet financial reporting requirements; our lack of
extensive experience in manufacturing and marketing products may impact our
ability to manufacture and market products on a profitable and large-scale
commercial basis; the risk that unit orders will not ship, be installed and/or
converted to revenue; the risk that pending orders may not convert to purchase
orders; the risk that our continued failure to comply with NASDAQ's listing
standards may result in our common stock being delisted from the NASDAQ stock
market, which may severely limit our ability to raise additional capital; the
cost and timing of developing, marketing and selling our products and our
ability to raise the necessary capital to fund such costs; the ability to
achieve the forecasted gross margin on the sale of our products; the actual
net cash used for operating expenses may exceed the projected net cash for
operating expenses; the cost and availability of fuel and fueling
infrastructures for our products; market acceptance of our GenDrive systems;
our ability to establish and maintain relationships with third parties with
respect to product development, manufacturing, distribution and servicing and
the supply of key product components; the cost and availability of components
and parts for our products; our ability to develop commercially viable
products; our ability to reduce product and manufacturing costs; our ability
to successfully expand our product lines; our ability to improve system
reliability for our GenDrive systems; competitive factors, such as price
competition and competition from other traditional and alternative energy

complying with current and future federal, state and international
governmental regulations; and other risks and uncertainties discussed under
