THORNTON, Colo. -- July 25, 2013

Ascent Solar Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:ASTI), a developer of consumer and
off-grid products integrated with state-of-the-art, flexible thin-film
photovoltaic modules, announced today the company’s new agreement with the
Denver Broncos Football Club, adding Ascent to a group of ‘Hometown Sponsors’
for the NFL franchise, a deal which will include in-stadium advertising rights
at Sports Authority Field at Mile High, coupled with promotional rights for
Ascent’s consumer line of products, EnerPlex™.

The Denver Broncos are one of the most successful teams in NFL history,
winning two Super Bowls and six AFC Championships. With an intensely loyal fan
base, the team has succeeded in selling out every regular-season home game
since 1970 and growing its waiting list for season tickets to over 40,000
accounts.

Victor Lee, Ascent Solar’s President & CEO, said, "The Denver Broncos
exemplify what is best about the NFL, a tradition of excellence on the field
and a spectacular fan base which passionately supports its team.”

Mr. Lee continued, “The Broncos have arguably one of the best, most loyal and
most respected fan bases in the history of the NFL and Ascent is extremely
proud to be a partner of the Broncos to bring our revolutionary, flexible,
solar integrated products to the forefront of consumers’ consciousness, both
here in Colorado, famously known as Broncos’ country, and across the United
States.”

As part of the agreement, Ascent will sponsor a new technology zone inside and
around Sports Authority Field at Mile High and receive advertising within the
new and fully integrated IPTV solution which plays across 1,100 HD televisions
throughout the stadium, as well as utilizing the newly installed 1,430’ long
LED banner which extends the length of the club level façade. In addition,
Ascent will also receive multiple media and advertising opportunities, among
others a one-half page advertising spot in the Broncos’ GameDay Magazine which
is distributed free of charge to 45,000 fans at each home game.

“The Denver Broncos are proud to have Ascent Solar as a hometown partner with
the team and incorporate them within the new technology zone this season,”
said Dennis Moore, Denver Broncos Vice President of Sales and Marketing.
