Etrion: Etrion Announces an Update on Development Activities in Chile

Press release published at The Swedish Wire
June 20, 2012, Geneva, Switzerland - Etrion Corporation ("Etrion" or the "Company") (TSX: ETX) (OMX: ETX), an independent power producer, is pleased to announce an update on its development activities in Chile, as part of its strategy to expand its operations into the Americas.  

Development Activities in Chile

With an office now in Santiago, Chile, Etrion is in a strong position to develop a sustainable platform for future growth in the Americas and has made excellent progress on its development activities to date. Specifically, the Company is negotiating its first power purchase agreement, to construct a 5 megawatt ("MW") solar power project with expected project realization in 2013. In addition, Etrion is pursuing other opportunities to provide solar electricity to mining companies with varying energy requirements located throughout the country and expects additional power purchase agreements to be signed before the end of the year.

The cost of solar generation has dropped significantly enabling Etrion to provide competitive electricity solutions to mining companies through power purchase agreements denominated in United States dollars in areas of high solar irradiation, without the need of subsidies. Chile is a country with abundant renewable resources (i.e., high solar irradiation), high wholesale electricity prices and a large energy demand, making it an ideal country for Etrion to grow and diversify through new opportunities.

Current Operations

Etrion's current platform, of approximately 60 MW of operating solar power projects in Italy, continues to perform above budget. During the first five months of 2012, the Company produced over 40 million kilowatt hours of solar electricity, approximately 10% above plan.

Management Comments

Marco A. Northland, the Company's Chief Executive Officer, commented: "I am very pleased with the progress we are making in Chile. Projects we are discussing with potential clients are at grid parity, which is very exciting news for our industry. We are also pleased to confirm access to long-term financing in Chile at competitive terms. There is still a lot of work to do however Chile is a sustainable market which we can develop without being at the mercy of subsidy changes. Long-term cost reduction trends in solar should enable Etrion to become ever more competitive with other sources of energy. If we are at grid parity today, we should be in better position tomorrow. "
