Among the Largest Roof-top PV Plants In Germany; One Million kWh of
Solar Energy Annually

Sandvika, Norway, September 21, 2009 - Reflecting REC's continued
expansion into the commercial roof-top segment and growing interest
in solar energy from global companies, more than 4,500 REC modules
have been installed on the roof of the new Hugo Boss logistics center
in Metzingen, Germany by REC partner GOLDBECK, a large construction
company focusing on industrial roof-top and ground mounted PV
installations. The 22,000 square-meter roof-top solar installation
is among the largest and most powerful in the country, expected to
produce around one million kWh of solar energy each year and reduce
greenhouse gas emissions by 540 tons.

"This significant installation of solar modules underscores the
important development of deploying solar modules on commercial
roof-tops," said Mr. John Andersen Jr, REC EVP & Group COO. "We are
pleased to partner with GOLDBECK on this project and proud that Hugo
Boss chose REC's high performance solar modules to help power its new
logistics center."

Added Mr. Joachim Goldbeck, Managing Director, GOLDBECK; " In the
industry it is becoming common knowledge, that economically and
ecologically sustainable and attractive actions are jointly available
and actually irreversibly merging. We are effectively seeing more
global companies turning to solar." We look forward to continuing to
work with REC, which has proven to be a dependable partner committed
to quality."
