Ascent Solar Announces Plan to Debut New Product Line at Outdoor Retailer

THORNTON, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Ascent Solar Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:ASTI), a developer of consumer and off-grid products integrated with state-of-the-art, flexible thin-film photovoltaic modules, announced today the company will debut the newest additions to its EnerPlex KickrTM Series as well as introduce an exciting new line of EnerPlexTM products to be showcased at the Outdoor Retailer Summer show in Salt Lake City July 31st through August 3rd, at Booth Number PV870.

Ascent Solar's Manager of Branding & Marketing, Justin Jacobs said, "We look forward to exhibiting the exciting new additions to our product lines and giving distribution partners an opportunity to get a behind the scenes look at our products before they become available for sale later in August ."

Small enough to be attached to a belt loop yet powerful enough to make sure devices always have a charge, the Kickr line of personal solar chargers is uniquely enabled by the rugged, lightweight and flexible form factor of Ascent's CIGS solar cells. Kickrs are perfect for consumers who desire a robust and rugged charging solution when off the grid. Unlike chargers produced using traditional mono-crystalline solar which is heavy, fragile and cumbersome, the Kickr line is light, user-friendly and built to withstand even the harshest conditions.

Mr. Jacobs also added, "Our presence at Outdoor Retailer also includes an invitation to product designers to learn about how our unique, lightweight, flexible solar technology can be integrated into a wide variety of innovative consumer and specialty outdoor applications and we look forward to helping them innovate."
