    BRANTFORD, ONTARIO - March 23, 2015

    Solarize Energy, an end-to-end solar project development and management company in Ontario, announces that it has put in place a financing vehicle that provides non-recourse long-term debt for small and medium sized portfolios. Given the specific challenges of raising appropriate debt financing for smaller rooftop portfolios, this financing vehicle has been set up to accommodate portfolios as small as single projects.

    "Our long-term vision is to be a significant player in a robust and dynamic solar industry in Ontario", said Carlos Leite, Co-Founder and Managing Director of Solarize Energy. "With this financing facility, we can now deliver a turnkey solution that is truly end-to-end". Craig Walker, Sales Manager at Solarize Energy, emphasized that "Solarize Energy is now able to bring construction-stage and long-term debt financing as part of its aggregation facility specifically designed to meet all the requirements of the FIT2 and FIT3 contracts." Paul Leikermoser, Business Development Director at Solarize Energy, added that "This financing facility represents an invaluable option for developers, landlords as well as EPC companies who want to ensure that their projects reach commercial operation."

    These projects are possible under the government of Ontario's FIT Program with its focus on the development of distributed clean power. By replacing fossil fuels, the clean energy generated by these solar photovoltaic systems will also contribute significantly to efforts to fight climate change. The Solarize value proposition for project developers and owners includes design and engineering, construction and commissioning, project and contract management, as well as operations and maintenance once the projects reach commercial operation.

Kristopher explains, "I am looking forward to this new chapter in my career and continuing as an active OSEA member in the years ahead."

    Joe Mulhall on behalf of the Board of Directors stated "The Board made the decision more than a year ago to create the new position of Director of Operations and Finance and to divide the responsibilities for the management of OSEA into two separate positions reporting directly to the Board.  The Board was pleased that Nicole Risse agreed to take on that new role and her performance in the last year has proven that she was a good choice. We are confident in her ability to manage the business of OSEA.  Kristopher leaving will not affect the day to day operations at OSEA."   

    Nicole Risse has been a core member of OSEA for more than six years, having served as Business Development and Outreach Manager and currently as Director of Finance and Operations.  She is a specialist in sustainable energy, stakeholder engagement and grassroots logistics having managed campaigns in Europe, Asia and North America.  Nicole was instrumental in coordinating the successful Green Energy Act campaign, the now national Green Energy Doors Open sustainable energy showcase, the association's Powering Prosperity Awards, the monthly Energy Drinks networking event, the OSEA 20/20 Roadmap webinar series and numerous past international sustainable energy conferences.

    Joe Mulhall stated further.  "Nicole's strong commitment to OSEA's vision and to the members, combined with her understanding of key issues facing the sector, her organizational skills and proven management capability, will keep OSEA moving forward in a positive direction."
