SunEdison and Constellation Energy Sign Solar Renewable Energy Credit Agreement in Maryland

BELTSVILLE, Md.--January 31 , 2008 -SunEdison, North America’s largest solar energy services provider, today announced a 15-year agreement to sell Constellation Energy Commodities Group, Inc., a subsidiary of Constellation Energy (NYSE: CEG), an estimated four megawatts (MW) of solar renewable energy credits in Maryland. When completed, the installations covered under this agreement will provide 30 percent of Maryland’s Renewable Portfolio Standard solar energy requirements in 2008, and almost 60 percent in 2009.

This long-term agreement will permit SunEdison to install solar systems on its customers’ properties, and the estimated four MW of facilities to be built will more than triple the capacity of solar generation operating in the state.

“This transaction furthers the deployment of large-scale solar systems nationwide,” said SunEdison CEO Thomas (Tom) Rainwater. “It ensures that Maryland plays a significant part in meeting the state and nation’s energy needs. SunEdison is passionate about bringing solar energy to our home state.”

“Purchasing clean, renewable energy credits through Maryland’s competitive marketplace is one of the most important ways we can help the state achieve its ambitious Renewable Portfolio Standard goals,” said Paul J. Allen, chief environmental officer and senior vice president, Constellation Energy. “Agreements such as this one underscore that the competitive marketplace is attracting investment and driving innovation in clean energy technology.”
