US SOLAR FUND PLC (USF, the "Company")

SIXTH ACQUISITION UPDATE

FINANCIAL CLOSE ON 25% INTEREST IN 200MW(DC) PROJECT IN CALIFORNIA

US Solar Fund plc (LON: USF (USD)/USFP (GBP)) is pleased to announce that it has reached completion on the first tranche ("Tranche One") of an acquisition representing a 25% interest in a 200MW(DC) operating solar plant located in the Imperial Valley of Southern California, Mount Signal 2 (MS2). The Company previously announced binding terms to acquire Tranche One of MS2 for $23 million on 31 December 2020. With the completion of Tranche One, USF's total portfolio will now consist of 493MW(DC) of fully operational assets in four states of the US, with a weighted average investment-grade PPA term of 15.4 years.

As previously announced, MS2 was built during 2018 and 2019 by Swinerton Renewable Energy, a leading US constructor. The Project uses First Solar Series 6 modules, with operations and maintenance services provided by First Solar Energy Services under a long-term contract. MS2 has a 20-year PPA with Southern California Edison (SCE), that commenced in June 2020. Under the PPA, 100% of the electricity generated by MS2 is sold to SCE at an annually escalating price. SCE (S&P: BBB), a subsidiary of Edison International, serves a population of more than 15 million people and is the primary electricity provider for central, southern and coastal California.
