Evergreen Solar Introduces New Black-Framed String Ribbon™ Solar Panels at Solar Expo 2009 in Verona, Italy

The Company’s most powerful solar panels features aesthetic improvements

Solar Expo 2009MARLBORO, Mass.--May 7 2009 --Evergreen Solar, Inc. (Nasdaq: ESLR), a manufacturer of String Ribbon™ solar power products with its proprietary, low-cost silicon wafer technology, will introduce its new black-framed ES-A Series String Ribbon solar panels at its booth during Solar Expo 2009 in Verona, Italy, May 7-9. These panels are an improvement of the company’s line of 200, 205 and 210 W solar panels designed with a black frame that, when installed on roofs, improves the aesthetic appearance of solar arrays..

Evergreen Solar’s new line of ES-A black-framed String Ribbon panels will be available for viewing throughout Solar Expo at the company’s booth located in Hall 5, B3.1.

The ES-A line of panels deliver more electricity with the least environmental impact of any solar panel currently available. The ES-A series panels feature the best power tolerance currently available in the industry and String Ribbon panels received high rankings in recent TÜV and Photon performance tests. All Evergreen Solar panels are manufactured using its proprietary silicon wafer technology which is the most environmentally-friendly process in the industry giving them the smallest carbon footprint and quickest energy payback of any panel ever made.

Installation of the new black-framed ES-A series panels is identical to former panels with silver frames. Evergreen Solar recommends the use of black anodized mounting clamps to ensure a homogenous appearance of the system.

“The black-framed ES-A series panels allow our customers to create installations that not only provide more electricity and less impact on the environment than any other solar panel made today but also do so in a way that is aesthetically pleasing to the end user,” said Dr. Terry Bailey, Senior Vice President, Marketing and Sales. “We created this improvement of our product line in response to input we received from our installers and partners. They have been very well-received since their introduction in April.”

All panels in the ES-A series are produced at Evergreen Solar’s new state-of-the-art Devens, Massachusetts, manufacturing facility and use the company’s proprietary Quad furnaces to create the solar wafers.
