KEPI NEWS:Clean Energy and Power Negotiating Acquisition of 3 Megawatt Solar Project in Bulgaria WARWICK, RI, Jun 23, 2010 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- Clean Energy and Power, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: KEPI) (www.cleanenergyandpower.com) today announced it has entered into exclusive negotiations to acquire a controlling stake in a 3 megawatt solar project in Bulgaria, a member of the European Union.
CEP is taking the opportunity to gain an early entrance to the Bulgarian market place for these energy projects. The recent announcement by Bulgaria and European Energy Commission to approve the details of a solar program which will last for the next several years includes a 25-year guaranteed off-take price (purchase price by the utility) in the amount of $0.56 US per kWh. "The boom in European solar development is continuing and the next country to lead these efforts is Bulgaria. We feel it is of paramount importance for us to be first on the ground as we continue our solar development efforts in Europe," said Mr. Erwin Vahlsing, Jr., CEO of the company.
"Bulgaria offers an exciting opportunity to Clean Energy and Power with its 25-year price guarantee of $0.56 US per kWh to start with, and then we add onto that some of the highest sun-hours per year in Europe. Compared to our existing installation in the Czech Republic the same panel in Bulgaria will give us an additional 20% more electricity and the resulting revenue," said Mr. Dennis Shen, President of the Company and the Chief Operating Officer of CEP's European subsidiary Clean Energy and Power s.r.o. Mr. Shen is directly in charge of the negotiations taking place between CEP and 3 Bulgaria project developers: a local Bulgarian real estate company, an Austrian solar developer who would be one of the joint venture partners, and Glass Time s.r.o (www.glasstimeeurope.com), a Czech-based solar project developer. "Glass Time, being the lead developer on the project, continues to bring to CEP an ongoing stream of projects and we are excited about the relationship that will be undertaken between Glass Time and CEP," said Ms. Elena Kotunova, managing director of CEP in the Czech Republic and a former operations manager of Glass Time.
