Full Year 2012 Financial Results

Net revenues were  $721,835  for the twelve months ended  December 31, 2012 
compared to  $2,303,142  for the same period in the prior year. The Company's
decision to focus on engineering and scalability improvements while developing
strategic relationships with larger customers resulted in elongated sales cycles
in 2012.  

Operating expenses were  $2,368,793  during 2012, down from  $3,571,558  in
2011. The Company incurred lower non-cash stock-based compensation expenses in
2012 while reducing certain targeted marketing expenses and investor relations
costs.

Net loss and net loss per share were  $2,481,728  and  $0.04  in 2012 compared
to  $2,547,493  and  $0.05  in 2011, respectively. The weighted average shares
outstanding increased from 47,440,255 to 55,479,675 in 2012.

at  December 31, 2012. Cash used in operating activities was  $1,162,812  for
the year ended  December 31, 2012  compared to  $1,970,831  for the same period
in 2011.  

Subsequent to the end of fiscal 2012, the Company raised approximately  $1.7
million  (net) in a private placement. The Company intends to complete the 
$2.19 million  private placement sometime in early Q2 2013.

Business Update

Over the past seven years, Envision Solar has developed innovative solar
structures based on proprietary technologies and designs. Its three main product
lines - Solar Tree array, Solar Tree Socket, and EV ARC systems - are used in
retail, utility, commercial property, and government campus parking lots and
public spaces, respectively. The Company has been selected by General Motors to
be the exclusive supplier of Solar Tree arrays to Cadillac's 952 dealers in the
U.S. This opportunity provides an excellent entry into a rapidly growing market
as auto manufacturers and dealers make efforts to enhance their sustainability
image as well as capitalize on the growing consumer demand for electric vehicles
(EVs).  

The Company is increasingly well positioned to tap the burgeoning opportunity to
sell its Solar Tree arrays and Solar Groves to corporate, university and
government clients. Entities such as General Motors, McDonalds, Dell, Kyocera,
San Diego Gas and Electric (SDG&E), Axion Power, and the U.S. Navy have deployed
Envision Solar's arrays, often with integrated EV charging stations, on their
campuses and in their parking lots. Customizable for each client's needs and
equipped with Envision Solar's proprietary EnvisonTrak tracking technology and
SunCharge "column integrated" EV charging stations, these highly standardized
and engineered solar products provide rapid deployment and superior performance
and flexibility compared to traditional solar installations.     

Envision Solar's latest product, the EV ARC, is a cost-effective,
easy-to-install, standalone solar charging station that requires no foundation,
no trenching, no building permit and no grid connection. One of the main
prerequisites to mass adoption of EVs is having a sufficient number of charging
stations. EV ARC captures and stores up to 22.5 kWh per day of power in each
integrated unit, sufficient to charge one electric vehicle each day. The Company
will initially target municipal, retail and corporate customers who are looking
for rapid, pain-free deployments of EV charging infrastructure without all the
challenges associated with conventional units. With global sales of EVs
forecasted to be in the tens of millions in the next few years, the Company
expects EV ARC to be a significant source of revenues.

Envision Solar's products provide rapid returns on investment (ROI) to customers
by delivering direct and indirect benefits.  For car dealers, the Solar Tree
arrays will elevate the dealers' branding and drive additional sales through a
highly visible structure that can be customized to suit their brand.  The Solar
Tree arrays also serve as charging stations for electric vehicles - which
creates additional traffic and sales opportunities. Each dealer is able to
garner positive media coverage by installing these innovative and beautiful
structures. The combination of tangible and intangible benefits make Envision
Solar's products economically very attractive. Highly engineered and
architecturally accretive Solar Tree structures attract customers, enhance
property values and improve tenant and employee recruitment and retention.

The Company uses a combination of internal and outsourced resources to design,
manufacture and assemble its products. In the past two years, its engineering
and manufacturing teams have developed and refined a highly scalable and
efficient design and assembly process that allows the Company to produce high
quality products which can be rapidly deployed individually or at scale with
minimal disruption to the customer location. This flexible model, which allows
the Company to manufacture and deploy products based on demand, creates
significant operating leverage which should deliver industry leading
profitability at scale.

Progress Report

The Company made significant investments in 2012, including:

1A redesign of its flagship Solar Tree® structure to allow for a significant
reduction in the field labor required for its installation. 2Redesign and
product development aimed at making the Company's products highly scalable and
exportable both domestically and internationally. 3The invention and engineering
of the EV ARC™. 4Ongoing and successful efforts to close business with large
opportunities such as Cadillac.

Management believes these investments position the Company with sustainable,
competitive advantages to support higher sales.

Mr. Wheatley continued, "We want to become an efficient and profitable company
on a sustainable basis.  Our EV ARC technology, which is easier and less costly
to deploy and capable of delivering power night and day, is an example of our
vision to use less disruptive technologies to enter a large, untapped market."  


2013 Outlook

Envision Solar continues to aggressively invest in new products and pursue new
business opportunities. The Company anticipates several upcoming milestones:

1Q1 2013. Installation of the first Cadillac Solar Tree® structure in a
dealership. 2Q2 2013. Initial roll-out of its EV ARC™ standalone solar charging
station to the market. 3April 2013. Participate as Cadillac's sole solar
provider partner at GM's 2013 dealers' convention. 4Q2 2013. Design and
engineering of the 2300 Solar Tree® installation in North Carolina. 5Q2 2013.
Close $2.19 million equity financing platform. 6FY 2013. First international

"We start 2013 in a stronger position than we have been in since I joined the
Company," concluded Mr. Wheatley. "With our financing nearly complete, we are
focused on executing the commercial opportunities we have with GM, Horizon
Energy and others, while developing a pipeline of future customers and partners.
We look forward to updating our shareholders on these exciting developments in
the coming months."
