SolarWorld, the largest U.S. solar manufacturer for more than 35 years, has
extended its popular Freedom ^ Plan, the solar industry’s only financing
program dedicated to high-quality, American-made solar panels and racking, to
six additional U.S. states. The program is now available to residential solar
customers not only in California but also in Colorado, Connecticut, Hawaii,
Maryland, Massachusetts and New Jersey. It is designed for homeowners seeking
freedom from rising utility costs and foreign energy sources by replacing a
portion of their electricity bill with a low monthly solar-power payment.

With zero-down, low-down and prepaid options, the SolarWorld Freedom Plan
offers homeowners several options for financing their American-made solar
investment and minimizing their upfront costs. The plan is offered in
conjunction with SolarWorld’s complete solar-electric systems, which include
photovoltaic equipment, installation, and monitoring, insurance and
maintenance for up to 20 years.

“From coast to coast, solar financing is changing the way American families
consume energy, enabling many more to incorporate sustainability while saving
money,” said Rusty Pittman, head of marketing for SolarWorld Americas.
“SolarWorld’s Freedom Plan not only makes the decision to go solar easier and
more affordable but it also gives homeowners a way to support U.S. jobs and
the national economy by selecting high-quality, American-made solar products.”

The Freedom Plan is available through the company’s network of authorized
installers. SolarWorld authorized installers are experienced, factory-trained
solar professionals with a track record of quality design, construction and
customer service. Homeowners can visit SolarWorld’s website to find an
authorized installer near them.

Installation companies that service California, Colorado, Connecticut, Hawaii,
Maryland, Massachusetts and New Jersey and are interested in providing
flexible financing through the Freedom Plan can apply for the authorized
installer program online.

SolarWorld launched the Freedom Plan in California in February. Beyond the
seven inaugural state markets, SolarWorld will expand the Freedom Plan into
additional U.S. solar markets, including Arizona and New York, in coming
