Business Wire

INWOOD, N.Y. -- July 15, 2013

Signal Transformer, a division of Bel Fuse Inc.(NASDAQ: BELFA)(NASDAQ:
BELFB),today announced the start of construction on a 129 kilowatt (kW) solar
photovoltaic system to be installed at the Signal Transformer facility located
in Inwood, New York. Signal Transformer is a premier manufacturer of
transformers, chokes, and inductors, as well as custom and modified-standard
products. Their parts are employed in a broad range of mission-critical
applications worldwide.

Once completed, the rooftop solar energy system will produce the majority of
Signal Transformer's annual electricity needs. The state-of-the art system
will generate clean renewable energy onsite and will offset the equivalent of
over 200,000 pounds of carbon each year.

"We are excited to announce the planned conversion of our Signal Transformer
facility to solar power," said Sandy Axelrad, Signal Transformer's General
Manager. "The decision to 'go solar' is a fine example of Bel's broad
commitment to environmental sustainability." In addition to the Signal solar
project, Bel's environmental initiatives include the use of alternative
(greener) manufacturing methods and materials, as well as the elimination of
lead and other banned substances from Bel's products.

Signal is partnering on the project with EnterSolar, a leading New-York based
provider of commercial solar solutions. "EnterSolar is excited to be
partnering with Bel on this significant project, and we applaud them for their
continued efforts to improve Bel's environmental footprint," said Paul Ahern,
EnterSolar's President. "In addition to the sustainability benefits, Signal
Transformer will enjoy significant savings on their ongoing electricity

The Signal Transformer solar project, scheduled for completion in August 2013,
is being facilitated by Governor Cuomo's NY-Sun Initiative, a dynamic
public-private partnership which is aggressively expanding the deployment of
solar photovoltaic systems across the Empire State.
