SOLAR DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT


THIS SOLAR DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT is effective as of March 12, 2013 (the “Effective Date”) between Calwaii Power Holdings, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Buyer”), Solar Hub Utilities LLC, a Hawaiian Limited Liability company hereafter referred to as (“Seller”), Solar Power, Inc., a California corporation (“SPI Lender”), and Hawaiian Power, LLC, a California limited liability company (“HPL Lender”) (SPI Lender and HPL Lender are sometimes hereafter individually referred to as “Lender”, and collectively as “Lenders”).


RECITALS


A.            Seller has or is in the process of developing, and owns certain rights, interests and assets comprising solar photovoltaic, electricity generating facilities, which are located on sites in Oahu, Maui and Kona, Hawaii, as further described on the “Project List” attached as Exhibit A.


B.            For each Project (as defined below) and in connection therewith Seller has acquired certain real estate rights and other assets and completed or commenced certain development activities. Pursuant to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Seller shall complete certain Conditions Precedent, Project Milestones and other requirements with respect to the Projects.


C.            Upon the completion of certain requirements, Seller shall transfer ownership of each Project and all Acquired Assets (as defined below) for said Project to an SPE (as defined below). Upon completion of the transfer of each Project and all Acquired Assets for said Project to the SPE, one hundred percent (100%) of the membership interests in the SPE shall be transferred to Buyer.


D.            Buyer desires to acquire all right, title and interest in and to the Projects and all Acquired Assets for said Projects, pursuant to the terms and conditions of this Agreement. Seller desires to transfer the Projects and all Acquired Assets for said Projects to Buyer in accordance with the terms hereof.


E.            SPI Lender and Seller previously entered into an agreement related to the development of the Projects (“Original Agreement”). Among other things, the Original Agreement called for SPI Lender to act in the capacity of an engineering procurement construction company for the Project wherein SPI Lender would provide pre-development capital, construction financing and construction oversight to Seller to assist in its continued development of the Projects. Seller was to remain the owner and applicant for all of the Projects until a FIT Agreement was executed between Seller and the Utility and consent for any transfer of the Projects was received from the Utility. It was contemplated that SPI Lender would have a secured interest in the Projects. In reviewing the Original Agreement, SPI Lender and Seller agreed that the terms of the Original Agreement may not accurately reflect the intent of SPI Lender and Seller regarding the transactions contemplated. Therefore, the Parties agreed that the Original Agreement was void and amended and restated such agreement effective June 7, 2012 to accurately reflect the transaction between SPI Lender and Seller which was further amended by that First Amendment to Amended and Restated Solar Development Acquisition and Sale Agreement dated October 18, 2012 (collectively, “Amended and Restated Agreement”).

 

 

 

 


F.            HPL Lender also loaned significant capital to Seller for use in the development of the Projects. While in the process of memorializing such loans it became clear that Seller would require additional funds from HPL Lender in order to develop the Projects. HPL Lender is willing to make additional loans upon the terms and subject to the conditions contained herein.


G.            SPI Lender, HPL Lender and Seller have determined that it is in the best interests of the parties to enter into this Agreement, and to amend, restate and replace in the entirety the Amended and Restated Agreement, in order to better coordinate the rights and obligations of the parties, and to reflect the new and complete agreement among the parties. Pursuant to the terms of this Agreement, SPI Lender and HPL Lender shall loan additional capital to Seller to be used solely for pre-development costs of the Projects. Upon Seller obtaining the Consent of the Utility, each Project shall be transferred by Seller to an SPE for purposes of further development and/or sale of the Project. Thereafter, the SPE shall remain the owner and applicant of the Project until a FIT Agreement is executed between the SPE and the Utility and consent for the transfer of the Projects is received from the Utility. Seller, SPI Lender and HPL Lender will each receive a membership interest in Buyer. The loans provided by SPI Lender and HPL Lender will be secured by a first priority security interest in, among other things, the Acquired Assets (as defined below) and will be repaid from the proceeds of the sale and/or development of the Projects and/or the SPEs. Additionally, as members of Buyer, SPI Lender, HPL Lender and Seller will receive distributions from the proceeds of the sale and/or development of the Projects and/or the SPEs.

(b)     (i) Provided that a Seller Event of Default has not occurred, on the first day of each calendar month, starting April 1, 2013 and ending on August 1, 2013, SPI Lender shall make a monthly deposit of Cash Advance funds to Escrow Holder in the amount of $28,090.00 and HPL Lender shall make a monthly deposit of Cash Advance funds to Escrow Holder in the amount of $24,910.00 for Seller’s overhead expenses for such month as reflected on the Seller Expense Schedule. Escrow Holder shall be authorized to make disbursement from the Escrow Account of such funds to Seller for overhead expenses without further approval of Buyer, SPI Lender or HPL Lender.


(ii)     Provided that a Seller Event of Default has not occurred, beginning on the Effective Date, SPI Lender and HPL Lender shall each deposit funds weekly with Escrow Holder for the payment of costs and expenses, other than overhead expenses as described above, consistent with the overall Cash Advance budget as reflected on the Seller Expense Schedule. The Seller Expense Schedule is an estimate as of the Effective Date of the amounts and time periods that such expenses shall be required. The amounts and timing of payments shall be made as the expenses actually arise, consistent with but not earlier than the Seller Expense Schedule. The Lenders’ deposits shall be made as follows: (A) not later than the Friday of each week, Seller shall submit a request to Lenders detailing the anticipated fund requirements for the following week, with supporting documentation, consistent with the Seller Expense Schedule (except for the first week of this Agreement, in which case, Seller shall submit such request within five (5) business days of the Effective Date), (B) subject to Lenders review and approval, which shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed, provided that such requests are consistent with the Seller Expense Schedule pursuant to Section 2.2.1(e) below, Lenders shall make a weekly deposit of Cash Advance funds to Escrow Holder for such costs and expenses not later than three (3) business days after receipt of Seller’s request, and (C) Escrow Holder shall be authorized to make disbursement from the Escrow Account of such funds directly to the applicable third parties for the payment of the approved expenses as further set forth in Section 2.2.1(c).

(iii)     Notwithstanding the foregoing or any other provision of this Agreement, (A) deposits of Cash Advance funds by Lenders pursuant to this Section 2.2.1(b) shall be subject to and shall not exceed the Cash Advance Cap, and (B) Lenders shall only make disbursements of Cash Advance funds provided that there remain (1) undelivered Projects which are in the Utility Tier 2 or Tier 3 FIT Program, and have not been subject to a Seller Event of Default or otherwise released by both HPL Lender and SPI Lender from this Agreement, plus (2) Projects transferred to SPEs the ownership of which has been transferred to Buyer pursuant to the terms of this Agreement (collectively, “Active/Completed Projects”), with an aggregate capacity of not less than 12.0 MW DC. If at any time the Active/Completed Projects have an aggregate capacity of less than 12.0 MW DC, then (x) each Lender’s obligation to make Cash Advance deposits shall terminate; (y) the Escrow Holder shall cease making Cash Advances to Seller from the Escrow Account, and (z) Escrow Holder shall release to each Lender an equal amount of the remaining Cash Advance balance then held in the Escrow Account.


(iv)     The parties acknowledge and agree that as of the Effective Date, SPI Lender has made Cash Advances to Seller in the aggregate amount of $7,400,277.45 and HPL Lender has made Cash Advances to Seller in the aggregate amount of $5,625,000 and neither SPI Lender nor HPL Lender is required to make aggregate Cash Advances in excess of the SPI Advance Cap and HPL Advance Cap, respectively. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if at any time either SPI Lender or HPL Lender fail to deliver its portion of the amount of Cash Advance then due, pursuant to Section 2.2.1(b)(i) or Section 2.2.1(b)(ii) above, and such failure continues for three (3) business days after Lenders’ receipt of Seller’s written notice of the failure to fund, the other Lender, in its sole discretion, may elect to make an additional Cash Advance up to the amount then due by such non-performing Lender by delivering the required funds to Escrow Holder no later than seven (7) days following the expiration of the prior 3-business day notice period. In such event, (A) the SPI Advance Cap and HPL Advance Cap will be adjusted accordingly to reflect an increase in the amount of such advance cap by the electing Lender and a decrease in the amount of such advance cap by the non-performing Lender, (B) the additional Cash Advance will be treated like any other Cash Advance, as additional principal due under the applicable promissory note, (C) the Lender Payment Percentages will be adjusted accordingly and in a pro rata manner to reflect the change in the percentage of the total Cash Advances made by each Lender in comparison to the total of all Cash Advances made by both Lenders, and (D) the Lender making the additional Cash Advance shall be entitled to, and shall receive, in addition to repayment as an additional Cash Advance as provided herein, an amount equal to such additional Cash Advance from the non-performing Lender from any future distributable cash that would otherwise be distributed to such non-performing Lender, as a member of Buyer and pursuant to the Buyer Operating Agreement and prior to any future distributions to such non-performing Lender other than in connection with its SPI Note or HPL Note, as applicable. The performing Lender shall not be required to deliver any such additional Cash Advance and shall not be deemed to be in default of this Section 2.2.1(b) if it does not elect to deliver such additional Cash Advance.

(d)     Notwithstanding the foregoing, neither SPI Lender nor HPL Lender shall be obligated to make a payment of the Cash Advance under Section 2.2.1(b), and Seller shall not be entitled to obtain Cash Advance disbursements under Section 2.2.1(c) during any time that SPI Lender, HPL Lender or Buyer has noticed an Event of Default which has not been cured as provided in Section 11.2.1.


(e)     Buyer’s Representative shall be responsible to coordinate the Cash Advance process with Seller, including, without limitation, assisting Seller with the preparation of the weekly funds requests, shall receive the weekly funding requests from Seller, shall be responsible for the review and approval of all weekly expense requests on behalf of Lenders, and authorizing and directing the disbursement of funds by Escrow Holder to insure that the funds are paid directly to the correct third party. Seller shall have no authority to disburse or expend Cash Advance funds, other than the overhead funds, without the approval of Buyer’s Representative.


(f)     The Lenders shall also reimburse Seller for their respective share of any pre-approved travel expenses incurred by Seller in connection with the Projects. Prior to incurring such expenses, Seller shall submit a written request for approval of such travel expenses to the Lenders for approval. After receiving such approval from the Lenders, Seller shall be reimbursed for such pre-approved expenses upon submission of actual invoices for such travel expenses within ten (10) business days of receipt of such invoices.


(g)     Not later than three (3) business days of the Effective Date, the Lenders shall deposit Cash Advance funds to Escrow Holder with authorization to disburse such funds to Seller or the applicable third parties, as the case may be, upon Escrow Holder’s receipt of such funds, in the amount of (i) $211,236.00 to Seller for Seller’s overhead expenses and other costs paid for December 2012, January 2013, February 2013 and March 2013, (ii) $90,000.00 to Kobayashi Sugita & Goda for legal fees through March 2012, (iii) $189,000.00 to CDF Engineering for engineering fees through March 2012, and (iv) $49,892.00 for Project costs and expenses for the first week of March 2013.

Subject to the limitation set forth in Section 10.3.5, from and after the Effective Date, Seller shall indemnify, defend, save and hold harmless Buyer, SPI Lender, HPL Lender, its Affiliates, and their respective members, managers, shareholders, employees, Representatives, officers, directors and agents (collectively, the “Buyer Indemnified Parties”) from and against any and all costs, losses, liabilities (including liabilities arising under principles of strict or joint and several liability), damages, lawsuits, deficiencies, claims and documented out-of-pocket expenses (whether or not arising out of third-party claims) including reasonable attorneys’ fees and all documented out-of-pocket amounts paid in investigation, defense or settlement of any of the foregoing (collectively, the “Damages”) incurred in connection with or arising out of or resulting from:

Subject to the limitation set forth in Section 10.3.5, from and after the Effective Date, Buyer shall indemnify, save and hold harmless Seller, its Affiliates, and their respective members, managers, shareholders, employees, Representatives, officers, directors and agents (collectively, the “Seller Indemnified Parties”) from and against any and all Damages incurred in connection with or arising out of or resulting from:


(i)     any breach of any representation, warranty, covenant or agreement made by Buyer in this Agreement or any other Buyer Document; or


(ii)     any liability arising out of Buyer’s acts or omissions, including negligence.


10.3.3     Defense of Claims. If any action or proceeding (including any governmental investigation or inquiry) shall be brought or asserted or threatened to be brought or asserted against an indemnified party in respect of which an indemnity may be sought from an indemnifying party, such indemnified party shall notify the indemnifying party in writing as promptly as practicable (and in any event within ten (10) Business Days after the service of the citation or summons); provided, however, that the failure of the indemnified party to give timely notice hereunder shall relieve the indemnifying party of its indemnification obligations hereunder only if, and only to the extent that, such failure caused the Damages for which the indemnifying party is obligated to be greater than they would have been had the indemnified party given timely notice. The indemnifying party shall have the right to assume the defense of such action or proceeding, including through the retention of counsel reasonably satisfactory to the indemnified party, by notifying the indemnified party within ten (10) Business Days after receipt of the indemnified party’s written notice. The indemnified party shall have the right to participate in the defense of such action or proceeding at its sole cost and expense; provided, however, that the indemnifying party shall be liable to the extent provided under this Article 10 for all reasonable costs and expenses of defending such action or proceeding incurred by the indemnified party, including reasonable fees and disbursements of counsel, if (i) the indemnifying party fails to assume the defense of such action or proceeding in accordance with the preceding sentence; or (ii) the named parties to any such action or proceeding (including any impleaded parties) include both such indemnified party and the indemnifying party, and such indemnified party shall have been advised by counsel that there may be one or more legal defenses available to such indemnified party that are different from or additional to those available to the indemnifying party (in which case, if such indemnified party notifies the indemnifying party in writing that it elects to employ separate counsel at the expense of the indemnifying party, the indemnifying party shall not have the right to assume the defense of such action or proceeding on behalf of such indemnified party). The indemnifying party shall not be liable for any settlement of any such action or proceeding affected without its written consent (not to be unreasonably withheld). The indemnified party shall not be required to consent to the settlement of any action or proceeding if such settlement involves anything other than the payment of money by the indemnifying party in full settlement of such action or proceeding.


10.3.4     Further Assurances. Each of the Parties hereto shall use commercially reasonable efforts to take all action and to do all things necessary, proper or advisable to consummate and make effective the transactions contemplated by this Agreement.

11.1         INTENTIONALLY DELETED.


11.2         Post-Closing Default.


11.2.1     Events of Default.


(a)     Seller Default. If (i) Seller fails to comply timely and in all material respects with any of Seller’s covenants, terms, conditions or obligations contained in this Agreement to be completed or complied with following the Effective Date, upon not less than thirty (30) days’ prior written notice by SPI Lender or HPL Lender to Seller, if such breach or failure is not cured within such 30-day period; (ii) any representation or warranty made by Seller in this Agreement, or any other document furnished by Seller in connection with this Agreement, shall prove to have been false or misleading in any material respect when so made or deemed made, (iii) an assignment for the benefit of Seller’s creditors occurs or Seller consents to the appointment of a trustee or receiver or the filing by or against Seller of any petition or proceeding occurs under any bankruptcy or insolvency law, and in the case of a filing against Seller, such petition or proceeding is not dismissed within sixty (60) days of its initial filing or (iv) a default occurs under the SPI Note, HPL Note, Security Agreement (Assets) or Security Agreement (Membership Interests) subject to any applicable notice and cure periods (each a “Seller Event of Default”); provided, however, none of the foregoing events shall be deemed a Seller Event of Default if caused, directly or indirectly, by (A) a Lender Event of Default, or (B) any action or inaction by Buyer that is not caused or consent to by Seller.


(b)     Lender Default. If SPI Lender or HPL Lender fails to comply timely and in all material respects with any of its covenants, terms, conditions or obligations contained in this Agreement to be completed or complied with, upon not less than (i) thirty (30) days’ prior written notice by Seller to both SPI Lender and HPL Lender, or (ii)  three (3) business days prior written notice if the failure relates to SPI Lender’s or HPL Lender’s obligations to make payments to Escrow Holder, or the release of its funds to Seller, if such breach or failure is not cured by the defaulting Lender within such 30-day period, or 3-business day period, as applicable (each a “Lender Event of Default”). Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that SPI Lender or HPL Lender shall fail to make any payments then due to Escrow Holder in violation of this Agreement, then the other Lender shall have the right but not the obligation to cure such failure, as provided in Section 2.2.1(b)(iv), and avoid a Lender Event of Default with respect to such defaulting Lender and shall have no less than seven (7) days to do so following receipt of written notice from Seller indicating the event that would otherwise be deemed to be a Lender Event of Default. Notwithstanding the foregoing, neither Lender shall be deemed to have caused a Lender Event of Default as result of the actions of the other Lender and Seller shall have no remedies hereunder against a Lender who is not in violation of any of its obligations under this Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event one Lender makes a Cash Advance payment on behalf of the other Lender as provided in Section 2.2.1(b)(iv), Seller shall not be entitled to call a Lender Event of Default on either Lender.

 

38

(2)     Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, including any limitations set forth in this Section 11.2.2, in the event of a Seller Event of Default, each Lender shall have, among other things, all rights and remedies available to them under the SPI Note, HPL Note, Security Agreement (Assets) and Security Agreement (Membership Interests), and Mortgages.


(b)           Lender Default; Seller’s Remedies. In the event of a Lender Event of Default, Seller as its sole and exclusive remedy shall be entitled to terminate this Agreement with the defaulting Lender(s) and the defaulting Lender(s) shall, upon receipt of written request from Seller and a non-defaulting Lender or Seller alone, if both Lenders have defaulted, promptly and, in any event, within fifteen (15) days of receipt of written notice, take all action reasonably necessary in order to cause a subordination of its security interest(s) in the Projects or the Assets of Seller for purposes of obtaining reasonably necessary funding for the Projects and in an amount up to the remaining unfunded amount(s) of the SPI Advance Cap and the HPL Advance Cap at the time of the Lender Event of Default. Notwithstanding the foregoing, a defaulting Lender shall continue to have the right to recover its outstanding Cash Advance balance under the SPI Note and/or HPL Note. Notwithstanding the foregoing, neither Lender shall be deemed to have caused a Lender Event of Default as result of the actions of the other Lender and Seller shall have no remedies hereunder against a non-defaulting Lender.


11.2.3     Termination Events. This Agreement shall terminate:


(a)           by the mutual written consent of Buyer, SPI Lender, HPL Lender and Seller;


(b)           by Buyer or either Lender upon written notice to Seller of such termination, in the event of an uncured Seller Event of Default as provided in Section 11.2.2(a) above;

 

39 
 

 

 


(c)           by Seller, upon written notice to the applicable defaulting Lender of such termination, in the event of an uncured Lender Event of Default as provided in Section 11.2.2(b) above. Seller may not terminate this Agreement with respect to a Lender that does not have an uncured Lender Event of Default.


(d)           If one Lender, but not the other, terminates this Agreement by written notice to Seller pursuant to Section 11.2.3(b) above, this Agreement shall continue between Seller and the non-terminating Lender.


11.2.4   Effect of Termination.


(a)           In the event of any termination of this Agreement as provided in Section 11.2, this Agreement shall forthwith become wholly void and of no further force and effect, except as set forth in this Agreement, and there shall be no liability on the part of the terminating party. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no such termination shall serve to release any Party from any liability (including any such liability under Section 10.3) with respect to any breach of its duties and obligations hereunder prior to such termination, provided that each of the Parties hereto shall use take all action and to do all things necessary, proper or advisable to consummate and make effective the rights and remedies contemplated by this Agreement.


(b)           Notwithstanding the foregoing, Section 9.4 (Buyer Confidential Information) and Section 9.5 (Seller Confidential Information) shall survive the termination of this Agreement for a period of one year from the date on which such termination occurs.


(c)           EXCEPT WITH RESPECT TO THIRD-PARTY CLAIMS, NO PARTY SHALL BE LIABLE FOR ANY LOST OR PROSPECTIVE PROFITS AND IN NO EVENT SHALL ANY PARTY BE LIABLE FOR ANY OTHER PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY, CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL OR INDIRECT LOSSES OR DAMAGES (IN TORT, CONTRACT OR OTHERWISE) UNDER OR IN RESPECT TO THIS AGREEMENT OR ANY OTHER BUYER DOCUMENT, SELLER DOCUMENT OR EXHIBITS TO THIS AGREEMENT OR FOR ANY FAILURE OF PERFORMANCE RELATED HERETO, HOWSOEVER CAUSED.

No amendment, supplement, modification, waiver, or termination of this Agreement shall be binding, unless executed in writing by each of Seller, Buyer, SPI Lender and HPL Lender.

This Agreement may be executed in counterparts, each of which shall be deemed to be an original, but which together shall constitute a single document. Signatures transmitted by facsimile shall be binding; provided, however, that any person transmitting his or her signature by facsimile shall promptly send an original signature to the other parties in accordance with Section 13.3.

Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement to the contrary, all rights and remedies of either Party hereto are cumulative of each other and of every other right or remedy such Party may otherwise have at law or in equity, and the exercise of one or more rights or remedies shall not prejudice or impair the concurrent or subsequent exercise of other rights or remedies.


13.15       No Partnership or Joint Venture. The Parties hereto do not intend to create a partnership or joint venture by virtue of this Agreement. No Party shall owe any fiduciary duty to any other Party by virtue of this Agreement or any other Seller Document or Buyer Document or otherwise.

13.17       Public Announcements. No Party may issue any public announcement or other statement with respect to this Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby, without the prior consent, which shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed, of the other Parties, unless required by applicable Law, order of a court of competent jurisdiction; provided, however, that any Party or its Affiliates may make any public disclosure it believes in good faith and upon advice of counsel is required by applicable Law or stock market rule without the consent of (but with notice to) the other Party.

 

45 
 

 

 


13.18       Waiver of Defaults. Buyer, SPI Lender, HPL Lender and Seller hereby waive any defaults (known or unknown, asserted or unasserted) under the Amended and Restated Agreement, the SPI Note, HPL Note or the Security Agreement existing as of the Effective Date.
