Solar Power has entered into an agreement with Solar Power Partners to install a photovoltaic ("PV") solar system to power the Marshall Medical Center ("MMC") campus located in Cameron Park, California. MMC is converting their campus to PV solar power for both environmental and economic reasons.

The system will serve Marshall's many outpatient services located at 3581 Palmer Drive in Cameron Park and will feature an array of solar panels mounted atop elevated solar structures. The system will be comprised of 3,370 solar modules and provide 669 kilowatts of electricity. In addition, the elevated solar structures will provide shade and weather protection for 200 cars.

"The Marshall Medical Center project is significant to our region," said Steve Kircher, CEO of Solar Power, Inc.

"Marshall's facility serves a very large portion of the community and their conversion to solar power is significant. The environmental benefits of a system of this size, coupled with the cost savings the system will deliver to their operations, demonstrate the increasingly important role energy management is playing in every aspect of our lives."

"Converting to solar is something I feel very strongly about," said James Whipple, CEO for Marshall Medical Center.

"While we will reap financial benefit from doing so, I believe a greater good is also being served. Through our ability to become more self reliant with solar, we are also significantly reducing our carbon footprint. We have dedicated our lives to healing and view this as an important part of both our mission and our legacy."

Solar Power Partners, Inc. of Mill Valley, CA is providing the financing for the installation of the solar facility. SPP is a provider of Power Purchase Agreements ("PPA") for the commercial, institutional municipal and agricultural markets in California.

"We are committed to serving the energy needs of clients like Marshall Medical by providing reliable, long-term financing for renewable solar energy projects through development partners like Solar Power, Inc.," said Alexander V. Welczeck, SPP's Co-Founder and CEO. The company's PPA solutions allow customers to enjoy the benefits of solar energy while avoiding the capital outlay associated with system and installation costs.
