This Document Contains SUNRGI Proprietary Information

SUNRGIis in the business ofsolarenergy system s.Ourwork has lead
to the developm entofa entirely new category ofenergy system –
Xtreme Conc entrated Photovoltaic s ™ or XCPV™

Using Xtreme Conc entrated Photovoltaic s ™, SUNRGIconcentrates

the energy from the equivalentofm ore than 1,600 Suns onto highly-
efficient, triple-junction solarcells thatare m ounted to a SUNRGI
proprietary cooling system .

The Bottom Line

Using SUNRGIproprietary technology… Xtreme Concentrated
Photovoltaic s ™ (XCPV™ )… I tis possible to produce large am ounts of
electricity from solarradiation ata wholesale price ofUS5centsk / Wh.
The Es s entials :
There are 3 essentialSUNRGIattributes thatdifferentiate itfrom othersolar
energy com panies.
These are:

– Xtreme Concentrated Photovoltaic s ™

– Proprietary Cooling Tec hnolog y & Methodolog y
– Low -Cos t
• Mas s Production Manufacturing
• Field As s embly & Ins tallation
• Operation & Maintenanc e
Increas ed Lig ht Gathering Area


Virtually everyone has used a magnifying
glass to focus sunlight down to a small,
very bright, hot spot of light. SUNRGI
uses this same principle in its Xtreme
Concentrated Photovoltaics™ (XCPV™)
system (patents pending).  SUNRGI
efficiently concentrates sunlight so that it
is more than 1,600 times brighter than the
sun.  This concentrated sunlight is
focused onto photovoltaic (PV) solar cells
that convert more than 37% of the
sunlight directly into electricity.

Advantag es :
• On and Off-Grid Dis tribution – Otherconcentrated solartechnologies,
solartherm alin particular, need to be im plem ented as partoflarge
powerstations.SUNRGIsystem s can be deployed as large orsm all
system s, on oroff-grid installations.This allows lowerand m ore variable
m arketentry points.

• Modular – I
ts m odulardesign allows a powerplantto be distributed
overa num berofsites. I
tis m uch less land intensive.

• Upg radeable – SUNRGIdesign is upgradeable to take advantage of

advances in PVtechnology.
Advantag es :

• Energ y Conc entration – As a resultofhow SUNRGIconcentrates the

sunlight, the extrem e heatgenerated can be extracted efficiently by
SUNRGI ’s proprietary therm altechnology.

• Long evity – SUNRGIproprietary heatrem ovaltechnology m eans the

PVcells willhave a longerusefullife.

• Ec onomy – SUNRGIsystem costs are significantly less perinstalled

Wattthan traditionalPVtechnology.Expected advances in technology
and volum e production willfurtherincrease this advantage.
