Nelson to Provide Guidance to the Organization Pertaining to Solar Industry From Private Sector Perspective

SANTA BARBARA, CA--(October 28, 2015) - Solar3D, Inc. (SLTD) , a provider of solar power solutions and the developer of a proprietary high efficiency solar cell, today announced CEO Jim Nelson has been appointed to the Director's Council for The University of California, Santa Barbara's Institute for Energy Efficiency (IEE).

The Institute for Energy Efficiency's Directors Council is an invitation-only board of business leaders, private investors, and leading venture capitalists and lawyers that serves as the Institute's core advisory group. The Directors' Council provides strategic guidance and advice to campus and Institute leadership on the Institute's vision, mission, operations, key initiatives and content areas of greatest interest, including addressing the interests and goals of industry and academia. Members also consult with Institute leadership individually as needed and serve as ambassadors and advisors to the Institute.

Nelson's leadership and insight is expected to provide the Council with industry-insider knowledge and experience as solar continues to garner mass adoption, not only in California, but throughout the world. His track record for building a nationally recognized solar company through smart acquisitions to provide high quality solar solutions for customers, represents a story that resonates with the Council's executive level business leaders.

"I am honored to join the IEE Director's Council," said Jim Nelson, CEO of Solar3D. "Of all the industry organizations focused on the advancement of clean energy solutions, the IEE is the most forward-thinking and action-oriented of which I'm aware. While it is academic in nature, it is business and marketplace friendly, recognizing that widespread adoption of green power is a function of economics. At Solar3D, we have remained committed to providing value to our customers and shareholders, while making the communities we serve more sustainable. I look forward to working alongside the IEE to impart this mentality to future generations of businesses leaders and entrepreneurs."
