Enable IPC Issues Solar Energy Storage and Potentiostat Sales Update

 

VALENCIA, CA - June 3, 2010 - Enable IPC Corporation (Pinksheets: EIPC) today issued an update to shareholders and interested parties focusing on the Company's ultracapacitors, applications in solar energy storage and new potentiostat product line offered through the Company's subsidiary, SolRayo, Inc. (http://www.solrayo.com). The update is included in its entirety below.

Enable IPC Shareholder Update

Ultracapacitors and Solar Energy Storage

What are ultracapacitors?

Ultracapacitors (also called supercapacitors or EDL capacitors) are similar to batteries, but with higher power and lower energy storage. Enable IPC, through its SolRayo subsidiary, is commercializing a technology that improves performance in ultracapacitors. For more about Enable's technology, see a presentation on the Company's capacitor technology here: http://www.enableipc.com/files/nanoTX_leonard_presentation.pdf

Enable's Solar Energy Storage Units and Applications

In residential solar applications, which is within Enable's focus area, batteries are used for energy storage where there is no connection to the electric grid. This is done so that when the sun isn't shining, energy stored in the batteries (which is collected from the excess that is not used when the sun is up) can still provide power to the home.

In grid-connected applications, the homeowner may use batteries to store excess energy, or he may choose to return the excess back to the grid. Batteries are seen as an option for use during a blackout or other emergency.

However, many consider batteries undesirable for two major reasons: (1) some may require maintenance for the homeowner, (2) they may need to be replaced anywhere from once every six months to five years (depending on the battery and usage) and, most importantly, (3) they are very expensive and could add anywhere from 15% to as much as 40% (after tax credits, rebates, etc.) to the cost of the entire solar energy system.

So, to make batteries worth the extra expense, they need to be maintenance-free, last many times longer and priced much lower than commercially-available units today.

One of Enable's ultracapacitor solutions is aimed at this solar energy storage market. Enable's ultracapacitor energy storage unit would be maintenance-free, could outlast the solar energy system itself and could sell at about a third the price of comparable units.

With the worldwide sales for solar energy systems reported to be over $25 billion last year, and with a compound annual growth rate expected to be over 25% over the next five years, the opportunity for an energy storage system like ours is tremendous.

Expect to hear more about this opportunity and how Enable is addressing it in the coming days and weeks.

Enable's Potentiostat Systems and Sales Update

As Enable works to deliver another potentiostat system, this time to an East Coast university, the Company continues to receive interest in its systems from a number of universities, corporations and labs.

The users of the system delivered in Europe earlier this year have reported they are thrilled with the system's performance and have compared it very favorably with similar competing systems.

As the word continues to spread, Enable expects its sales to grow. For more information on the Company's potentiostat models, click here: http://www.solrayo.com/SolRayo/Instruments.html. Enable IPC's subsidiary, SolRayo, also offers competitively-priced potentiostat systems for sale in the following configurations:
