EnSync Energy Contracts Power Purchase Agreement with Easter Seals of Hawaii

122-Kilowatt Solar System to be Installed at Non-Profit's Service Center

MILWAUKEE, June 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- EnSync, Inc. (NYSE MKT: ESNC), dba EnSync Energy Systems, a leading developer of innovative distributed energy resource (DER) systems and internet of energy (IOE) control platforms for the utility, commercial, industrial and multi-tenant building markets, today announces that it has entered into a 20-year Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with Easter Seals Hawaii to help offset the non-profit's higher local electricity prices. 

The project features a ground mounted 122-kilowatt solar panel installation located at the non-profit's facility called the Kapolei Napuakea Service Center.  Easter Seals Hawaii is a nonprofit that empowers children and adults with disabilities through services like facilities-based care, job training, rehabilitation, home and community-based services, and much more. They have served Hawaii for over 70 years and provided more than 600,000 hours of service annually to individuals and families living in the state.

"The Hawaii electricity PPA market has proven to be a valuable place for EnSync Energy to deepen its presence, and show how applicable our business model has become," said Brad Hansen, CEO and President of EnSync Energy Systems. "This time we're especially proud to partner with an incredible non-profit to help lower their electricity prices, so they can better target those funds towards serving children and adults in need."

"Non-profits are always struggling to find ways to lower operating costs in Hawaii, so Easter Seals is thrilled to harness the abundant sunshine here and use it to lower our operational costs for the long term," said Ron Brandvold, Chief Executive Officer of Easter Seals Hawaii. "The need for our services never ends, so we appreciate being able to manage costs whenever and wherever we can."

"We deeply appreciate the energy community helping Easter Seals be sustainable while stabilizing our costs," said Michael Hulser, the Chairman of the Board for Easter Seals Hawaii. 

This project is in an advanced stage of development and construction targeted for completion by the end of 2017.  At this time EnSync Energy has 18 projects in Hawaii that are either operational, under construction or have been contracted.
