    • SANTA CRUZ Monetization through Development of a Solar PV Project February 7, 2013 Atlanta, Georgia 12/05/13 WESTFIELD ENERGY 1
    • RENEWABLE ENERGY • Increasing oil prices have driven PREPA’s rates to double that of the US average rate of 11 cents per kWh •PREPA’s current system is oil reliant •In order to address this, PREPA has a plan to either convert its plants to dual fuel or to source non-oil reliant PPAs •PREPA plans to increase its renewable energy from 1% of its portfolio in 2012 to 16% by 2016 12/05/13 WESTFIELD ENERGY 2
    • PHOTOVOLTAIC SOLAR (PV) • Photovoltaic (PV) systems help the environment by producing clean, renewable energy that replaces energy produced by power plants that burn coal, oil, and natural gas. • The amount of solar energy available on earth for PV power is 10,000 times greater than the total world energy use 12/05/13 WESTFIELD ENERGY 3
    • SOLAR ECONOMICS • $1.60 - $1.80/Watt Construction Costs •$.06 - $.07/KWh Generation Cost •$.24/KWh PREPA Retail Price •$.13 - $.15/KWh PPA Prices •Interconnection Costs 12/05/13 WESTFIELD ENERGY 4
    • PROJECTS IN P.R. •AES Ilumina, 24 MW Guyama •Western Wind, 30 MW Yabucoa •Salinas Solar (Sonnedix, Yarotek) 12 MW 12/05/13 WESTFIELD ENERGY 8
    • EXISTING POWER INFRASTRUCTURE In 2011, 68 percent of Puerto Rico’s electricity came from petroleum, 16 percent from natural gas, 15 percent from coal, and 1 percent from hydroelectric power. Puerto Rico has adopted a Renewable Portfolio Standard requiring 20 percent of net electricity sales to come from renewable energy resources by 2035. The existing power system in Puerto Rico has an installed capacity of approximately 5,830 MWs and a peak load of about 3,350 MW. 12/05/13 WESTFIELD ENERGY 9
    • SANTA CRUZ MONETIZATION STRATEGY •Property will be marketed to leverage its value in the renewable energy space. •Potential counterparties will include key global solar developers, global energy producers, as well as PREPA and PRLA •Approximate target price for parcel in its entirety is $40 million •Westfield Energy will leverage relationships with the overarching energy industry as well as with state controlled entities 12/05/13 WESTFIELD ENERGY 10
