San Diego CA (SPX) Feb 05, 2013

Horizon Energy Group will be the Solar Forest developer and financier.

Following the recent announcement of a strategic Teaming Agreement, Envision Solar International and Horizon Energy Group have announced that they had executed a Memorandum of Understanding, dated November 20, 2012, and the commencement of design work on a Solar Forest in North Carolina. The Solar Forest will be comprised of approximately 2300 Solar Tree structures and will generate approximately 35 megawatts of clean renewable Solar energy when completed scheduled in 2014.

The Memorandum of Understanding is an exclusive agreement in place between Horizon Energy Group, an undisclosed property owner in North Carolina and Envision Solar.

Under the terms of the agreement Horizon Energy Group will be the Solar Forest developer and financier, the property owner will be the host and Envision Solar will be the exclusive provider of solar design, fabrication and delivery of its proprietary and patented Solar Tree structures. Installation of the Solar Tree structures is expected to commence in the 2nd quarter of 2013 and be completed by the end of 2014.

"This is a massive and exciting deployment of our products," said Desmond Wheatley, CEO of Envision Solar.

"We are thrilled to be working with Horizon on this installation which is ideally suited to our highly engineered Solar Trees. Now we really get to see the value of bringing a modularized and scalable product to market. Our Drag and Drop capabilities make it possible for us to deliver the very high quality that Horizon demands in a highly efficient and scalable manner keeping costs in check but never at the expense of quality. This will be by far our biggest deployment to date and we are ready for it."

Envision Solar and Horizon will work with Green Energy Corp and McKim Creed Green, who, together will comprise the lead development and delivery team for the project.

"We are delighted to be leading this project with a great team," said Steve Pullins, CEO of Horizon Energy Group.

"North Carolina has proven to be a prudent renewables development state where the people, utilities, and policy-makers are aligned to reduce dependence on finite energy resources. This installation will be a great benefit to all stakeholders. The skills of our team are unique in the industry, and we believe that this Solar Forest, as the anchor of our microgrid plan, will be the model for future installations. We are creating a sustainable and reliable renewable energy generation plant which will serve the region for decades."

Envision's Solar Tree structures will be assembled locally and installed at the site by local resources contributing to employment in green industries in North Carolina.
