cost by using a reverse auction and standard contracts, which simplifies
contracting and streamlines regulatory reviews.To date this is the largest
solar project to come on-line under the RAM program and the first RAM project
constructed for SDG&E.

"It's an honor to bring the largest solar power plant interconnected through
the California RAM program online," said Bob Powell, president, North America,
SunEdison. "It supports our focus on growth and the growth of the solar
industry in California. We are fortunate to work with Wells Fargo, a
committed finance partner, which shares our vision for increasing the

projects like this one."

Wells Fargo has invested more than $1.3 billion of tax equity in more than 300
solar projects since 2007. To date, Wells Fargo has provided over $3 billion
in tax equity debt financing for renewable energy projects in 28 states.

industries, Wells Fargo was excited to provide tax equity for the Cascade
plant," said Barry Neal, head of Wells Fargo's Environmental Finance Group.
"We continue to build upon our longstanding relationship with SunEdison and
expand our commitment to the U.S. solar market."

The 150-acre solar power plant is comprised of more than 75,000 SunEdison
Silvantis™ Monocrystalline Solar PV Modules mounted to SunEdison AP90 Single
Axis Trackers. Silvantis Modules are built using SunEdison polysilicon and
wafers to ensure maximum reliability and performance. SunEdison AP90 single
