FOX SECURES RENEWABLE ENERGY FOR "AMERICAN IDOL" SEASON FINALE TUESDAY, MAY 20 AND WEDNESDAY, MAY 21, ON FOX

Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) to Supply Green Power; E-Village Solar to Provide Supplemental Solar Electric Power

Fox Broadcasting Company has secured two renewable energy resources for the highly anticipated two-night AMERICAN IDOL finale at the NOKIA Theatre L.A. LIVE Tuesday, May 20 (8:00-9:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed) and Wednesday, May 21 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed) on FOX. These eco-friendly initiatives will reduce the carbon footprint of the AMERICAN IDOL finale, as part of FOX's ongoing effort to reduce its impact on the world's climate and become carbon-neutral by 2010.

In partnership with the LADWP, FOX secured renewable energy for the Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE for the duration of the AMERICAN IDOL production. The power will be provided by LADWP's "Green Power for a Green LA Program," and sources will include a combination of solar energy, wind energy and hydropower. Find out more about these low-carbon energy sources at http://www.ladwp.com/ladwp/cms/ladwp001220.jsp.

In addition, FOX will install a solar panel system provided by E-Village, Inc. (http://www.evillagesolar.com/) in the AMERICAN IDOL media arrivals area. This high-performance photovoltaic system will be integrated into the LADWP utility grid and will substantially contribute to the renewable energy mix. After the finale, the solar electric system will be donated to a school in California through the Bonneville Environmental Foundation's Solar 4 R Schools program.

The AMERICAN IDOL season finale will air live for two nights from the NOKIA Theatre L.A. LIVE in downtown Los Angeles. On Tuesday, May 20 the Top 2 finalists will compete for the title before thousands of fans and millions of television viewers. On Wednesday, May 21 special guests and surprise performers will join Ryan Seacrest as he crowns the next American Idol.

LADWP, the largest municipally owned utility in the nation, was established more than 100 years ago to provide water and electricity to meet the needs of the city's residents and businesses. LADWP currently serves about four million people in the City of Los Angeles.

The Green Power Program is just one part of the LADWP Green LA Environmental Programs, which also include Energy and Water Conservation, Trees for a Green LA in conjunction with the Million Tree Initiative, Solar Power, Green Building efforts and Recycling. Information on these environmental programs, as well as energy and water saving tips, are available at the LADWP web site www.ladwp.com or by calling 1-800-Green LA.

E-Village provides environmentally safe, eternal, energy to the world through education; green product development and distribution; and renewable energy production facilitation. Dedicated to changing the world one (solar) cell at a time, E-Village teams with other green technology-minded strategic partners, like FOX, to bring eco-friendly products and services to the world.

AMERICAN IDOL is created and executive-produced by Simon Fuller, founder and CEO of 19 Entertainment; and executive-produced by Cecile Frot-Coutaz, CEO, FremantleMedia North America, Inc.; Nigel Lythgoe, President, 19 Television; and Ken Warwick, Executive Producer, FremantleMedia North America, Inc.
