    Qsolar Reaches Milestone Event to Make Its Solar Panels Project Bankable

    December 27, 2012 - QSolar Limited is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary, QSolar Ltd., has received a confirmed offer for Willis Electronic Plus Photovoltaic Power Plant insurance ("Willis insurance") for its range of solar panels from German insurer Gaede & Glauerdt, Assecuradeur GMBH & Co KG, Hamburg, Germany through insurance broker, Willis GMBH & Co KG, Frankfurt, Germany. The significance of QSolar Ltd. executing this performance warranty insurance is that this will allow for QSolar photovoltaic ("PV") solar panels to be project bankable by third party purchasers and installers of QSolar products. Upon execution of definitive contracts by QSolar, the Willis insurance offering will expand the Corporation's potential selling market and allowing QSolar to compete for larger projects and sales orders. The insurance on QSolar's range of solar panel products may be offered to the project end user, and if accepted by the end user's financial institution, will provide in many cases, sufficient collateral for end user PV power plant financing. It ultimately gives operators of solar projects additional economic security in the event of an unforeseen loss in performance of the PV modules and installation. This event marks another major developmental milestone for the Corporation.

    Yingli Green Energy Holding Company Limited ("Yingli Green Energy" or the "Company") today announced that its PANDA module achieved great performance in the "TUV Rheinland 2011 Energy Yield Test", ranking the second best among all fourteen modules from eleven PV manufacturers in Europe, North America and Asia. All modules were tested under high temperature and low irradiation from September 1, 2011 to August 31, 2012. By comparing the average energy output per watt of all the modules, Yingli Green Energy's PANDA module emerged as the second best, which proved its stable performance under severe conditions. According to the test result, the electricity output of PANDA module was 0.6% lower than the top performer, 2.9% higher than the average level and 5.0% higher than the lowest ranking module. For example, a 30 kWp PV system in Germany using the "Yingli Solar PANDA" modules is expected to generate approximately 1200 kWh more per annum than using modules from the lowest ranking performer. The Company's multicrystalline PV module also excelled in the "2010 Energy Yield Test" by TUV Rheinland, ranking the second best amongst thirteen PV modules from eleven participating PV manufacturers from Europe, North America and Asia. "We're inspired to have continued our success in the TUV Energy Yield Test." said Dr. Dengyuan Song, Chief Technology Officer of Yingli Green Energy.
