Akeena Solar Files Updated Registration for Previously Issued Shares

January 9, 2008

Akeena Solar, Inc. (NASDAQ-CM: AKNS), a leading designer and installer of solar power systems, today announced it has filed an updated registration statement on Form S-3 with the Securities and Exchange Commission. This filing will benefit existing shareholders by updating its prior disclosures and consolidating the selling stockholder information relating to a total of 8,288,405 shares held by existing shareholders. The new registration form carries forward the registration of shares on older Form SB-2 filings made and declared effective in September, July and April 2007. Gary Effren, the Companys Chief Financial Officer, said Now that our Company has reached the point to be eligible to use a more streamlined form of registration statement through an S-3 filing, we wanted to consolidate our prior registrations. We otherwise would have had to periodically update our old registration filings. This allows the Company more time to focus on operating the business and moves our historical selling stockholder registration statements onto a more convenient form.

Akeena has not sold any additional shares to investors since our PIPE transaction in November 2007, added Effren.
