WAKE FOREST, N.C. -- September 16, 2013

PowerSecure International, Inc. (NYSE: POWR), announced today that it has
designed and installed the power systems for Sandy Grove Middle School (SGMS)
in Lumber Bridge, NC, which opened for the 2013-2014 school year as one of the
nation’s first net positive energy schools.

The LEED platinum certified school, which produces more energy than it
consumes, will utilize a 589 kW DC solar photovoltaic system, designed and
installed by PowerSecure Solar. Additionally, a 600 kW generator from
PowerSecure, which includes PowerSecure’s custom controls and distributed
generation solution, will enable demand response when the local utility,
Lumbee River Electrical Cooperative, begins its anticipated demand response
program in 2014.

“When we acquired our solar capabilities in 2012, we were looking to integrate
solar with our industry-leading DG offering through microgrid, firm solar and
other applications, and the project at Sandy Grove is a fantastic example of
how these combined assets can deliver enhanced value to our customers,” said
Sidney Hinton, chief executive officer of PowerSecure.

SGMS is expected to serve as a model for new school design and is anticipated
to save nearly $16 million in energy cost alone over the next 40 years.
Combined with other operations and maintenance efficiencies, SGMS will save
Hoke County, NC more than $35 million during that same period.

PowerSecure partnered with First Floor/SFL&A, the school developer and
architect, Optima Engineering, the building engineer, and MetCon Inc., the
general contractor, to develop this net positive energy school prototype,
incorporating integrated distributed energy systems, geothermal and state of
the art energy efficiency.
