Energy Conversion Devices, Inc.

Energy Conversion Devices, Inc. (ECD) (Nasdaq: ENER), the leading global manufacturer of thin-film flexible solar laminate products for the building integrated and commercial rooftop markets, announced that Senior Advisor Nancy Bacon testified yesterday before the U.S. House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure at the invitation of Chairman James L. Oberstar. The topic of the hearing was Infrastructure Investment: Ensuring an Effective Economic Recovery Program.

Ms. Bacon testified about the role that rooftop solar photovoltaic (PV) installations can play in generating more of our nation's electricity from clean, renewable sources; creating hundreds of thousands of jobs; reducing carbon dioxide production; reducing our reliance on foreign oil; and promoting distributed power generation in which power is generated where it is consumed, which relieves strain on the antiquated electrical grid.

Ms. Bacon commented, "As part of the stimulus package, we urge Congress to include a robust, national program to install solar photovoltaics on rooftops all across the country - starting with government buildings. An initiative of this magnitude will substantially benefit our economy through job creation, improve our environment and expand an important U.S. industry. We applaud the Committee and President Obama for supporting renewable energy, and look forward to working with them to transform American energy policy."
