Suntech’s Australia Super Draw Winner Gets Free Electricity for Life

SYDNEY, Australia, July 24, 2012 –/PRNewswire-Asia/ — Suntech Power Holdings Co., Ltd. (NYSE: STP), the world’s largest producer of solar panels, today announced the grand prize winner of its Suntech Super Draw in Australia, who will receive AUD20,000 for an eco-friendly retrofit of their home.

Dale C., the grand prize winner from Victoria, Australia, purchased a 4.5 kilowatt solar system that was installed by solar specialists Gippsland Solar. Dale said, “I’m so excited to have won the grand prize. I was already very happy with the performance of my Suntech solar panels. When I found out that I had won, that was just icing on the cake.” The solar system and eco-retrofit will almost completely eliminate Mr. Dale C.’s electricity bills.

The Suntech Super Draw campaign was launched on the heels of Suntech’s tenth anniversary to celebrate Suntech’s loyal customers and partners in Australia. Suntech customers submitted entries for the grand prize as well as two minor draws. Altogether, AUD28,000 was awarded to customers to offset the cost of their solar systems. In conjunction with the Super Draw, Suntech also launched a Solar Search competition offering prizes for the best pictures from customers or installers of their Suntech solar systems. A total of 401 entries were received from across Australia and the most unique pictures won prizes including iPads and digital cameras.

Holly Wu, Vice President of Marketing for the Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa said, “Suntech has a long-standing connection with Australia and we launched this campaign to celebrate 10 years of Australian technology powering solar solutions across the world. It is fantastic to see so many photos of our customer’s installations demonstrating the success of solar in Australia. As electricity prices continue to rise, solar power is increasingly seen as a viable renewable energy solution.”

In September 2001, Suntech’s CEO Zhengrong Shi, an Australian citizen who received his Ph.D. at the University of New South Wales (UNSW), founded Suntech to make advanced solar technology available and affordable for people around the world. Ten years later, Suntech is the world’s largest producer of solar panels and continues to invest in advanced solar R&D in Australia, China and globally.

Suntech will host a celebration and exhibition on July 27th at its booth at the ATRAA conference in Sydney during Australia’s Clean Energy Week. Please visit Suntech at booth #42.
