Alternet to Enter Solar Energy Industry

VANCOUVER, B.C., Oct 25, 2004 -- Alternet Systems Inc. (NASD:OTCBB:ASYI) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with Solflex Energy Development Corp. to acquire a 25% equity interest in Solflex and an exclusive license for North and South America, for Solflex’s proprietary non-silicone solar panel technology.

Solflex has developed an innovative, low-cost method of manufacturing solar photovoltaic (PV) panels using screen printing onto a flexible acetate substrate. The light-weight Solflex solar panel can be used in a wide variety of applications, including solar-powered buildings, homes and solar-power electrical generating facilities. The Solflex solar panel is flexible, weather resistant and more economical than standard silicone- based solar panels currently in the market.

Solar power is recognized as one of the most reliable and least intrusive alternative energy solutions, and is predicted to experience rapid growth in the near future.

Solar PV panel sales world-wide are currently $1.5 billion per year. The global solar panel market is projected to increase to $27 billion annually by 2020.

The technical advantages of the Solflex solar PV panel, combined with the rapid growth rate of the alternative energy sector, provide an excellent opportunity for Alternet.
