On behalf of Sunvalley Solar, Inc., a Nevada corporation (the " Corporation "), the undersigned hereby certifies that the following resolution has been duly adopted by the board of directors of the Corporation (the " Board "):


RESOLVED, that, pursuant to the authority granted to and vested in the Board by the provisions of the articles of incorporation of the Corporation (the " Articles of Incorporation "), there hereby is created, out of the six million (6,000,000) shares of preferred stock, par value $.001 per share, of the Corporation authorized by Article III of the Certificate of Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation (" Preferred Stock "), a series of Class B Convertible Preferred Stock, consisting of two million (2,000,000) shares, which series shall have the following powers, designations, preferences and relative participating, optional and other special rights, and the following qualifications, limitations and restrictions:


The specific powers, preferences, rights and limitations of the Class B Convertible Preferred Stock are as follows:


1. Designation; Rank . This series of Preferred Stock shall be designated and known as "Class B Convertible Preferred Stock." The number of shares constituting the Class B Convertible Preferred Stock shall be two million (2,000,000) shares, Except as otherwise provided herein, the Class B Convertible Preferred Stock shall, with respect to rights on liquidation, winding up and dissolution, rank pari passu to the Corporation’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the " Common Stock ") and the Corporation’s Class A Convertible Preferred Stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “ Class A Convertible Preferred Stock ”).


2. Dividends . The holders of shares of Class B Convertible Preferred Stock have no dividend rights except as may be declared by the Board in its sole and absolute discretion, out of funds legally available for that purpose.


3. Liquidation Preference .


(a)

In the event of any dissolution, liquidation or winding up of the Corporation (a " Liquidation "), whether voluntary or involuntary, the Holders of Class B Convertible Preferred Stock shall be entitled to participate in any distribution out of the assets of the Corporation on an equal basis per share with the holders of the Common Stock, after giving effect to the Conversion Rate described in Section 4 below.


(b)

A sale of all or substantially all of the Corporation's assets or an acquisition of the Corporation by another entity by means of any transaction or series of related transactions (including, without limitation, a reorganization, consolidation or merger) that results in the transfer of fifty percent (50%) or more of the outstanding voting power of the Corporation (a " Change in Control Event "), shall not be deemed to be a Liquidation for purposes of this Designation.


4. Optional Conversion of Class B Convertible Preferred Stock . The Holders of Class B Convertible Preferred Stock shall have conversion rights as follows:


(a)

Conversion Right . Each share of Class B Convertible Preferred Stock shall be convertible at the option of the Holder thereof and without the payment of additional consideration by the Holder thereof, at any time, into shares of Common Stock on the Optional Conversion Date (as hereinafter defined) at a conversion rate of ten (10) shares of Common Stock (the " Conversion Rate ") for every one (1) share of Class B Convertible Preferred Stock, subject to adjustment as provided in Section 4 of this Designation.


(b)

Mechanics of Optional Conversion . To effect the optional conversion of shares of Class B Convertible Preferred Stock in accordance with Section 4(a) of this Designation, any Holder of record shall make a written demand for such conversions (for purposes of this Designation, a " Conversion Demand ") upon the Corporation at its principal executive offices setting forth therein (i) the certificate or certificates representing such shares, and (ii) the proposed date of such conversion, which shall be a business day not less than fifteen (15) nor more than thirty (30) days after the date of such Conversion Demand (for purposes of this Designation, the " Optional Conversion Date "). Within five days of receipt of the Conversion Demand, the Corporation shall give written notice (for purposes of this Designation, a " Conversion Notice ") to the Holder setting forth therein (i) the address of the place or places at which the certificate or certificates representing any shares not yet tendered are to be converted are to be surrendered; and (ii) whether the certificate or certificates to be surrendered are required to be endorsed for transfer or accompanied by a duly executed stock power or other appropriate instrument of assignment and, if so, the form of such endorsement or power or other instrument of assignment. The Conversion Notice shall be sent by first class mail, postage prepaid, to such Holder at such Holder's address as may be set forth in the Conversion Demand or, if not set forth therein, as it appears on the records of the stock transfer agent for the Class B Convertible Preferred Stock, if any, or, if none, of the Corporation. On or before the Optional Conversion Date, each Holder of the Class B Convertible Preferred Stock so to be converted shall surrender the certificate or certificates representing such shares, duly endorsed for transfer or accompanied by a duly executed stock power or other instrument of assignment, if the Conversion Notice so provides, to the Corporation at any place set forth in such notice or, if no such place is so set forth, at the principal executive offices of the Corporation. As soon as practicable after the Optional Conversion Date and the surrender of the certificate or certificates representing such shares, the Corporation shall issue and deliver to such Holder, or its nominee, at such Holder's address as it appears on the records of the stock transfer agent for the Class B Convertible Preferred Stock, if any, or, if none, of the Corporation, a certificate or certificates for the number of whole shares of Common Stock issuable upon such conversion in accordance with the provisions hereof.


(c)

No Fractional Shares . No fractional shares of Common Stock or scrip shall be issued upon conversion of shares of Class B Convertible Preferred Stock. In lieu of any fractional share to which the Holder would be entitled but for the provisions of this Section 4(c) based on the number of shares of Class B Convertible Preferred Stock held by such Holder, the Corporation shall issue a number of shares to such Holder rounded up to the nearest whole number of shares of Common Stock. No cash shall be paid to any Holder of Class B Convertible Preferred Stock by the Corporation upon conversion of Class B Preferred Convertible Stock by such Holder.


(d)

Reservation of Stock . The Corporation shall at all times when any shares of Class B Preferred Convertible Stock shall be outstanding, reserve and keep available out of its authorized but unissued Common Stock, such number of shares of Common Stock as shall from time to time be sufficient to effect the conversion of all outstanding shares of Class B Convertible Preferred Stock. If at any time the number of authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock shall not be sufficient to effect the conversion of all outstanding shares of the Class B Convertible Preferred Stock, the Corporation will take such corporate action as may, in the opinion of its counsel, be necessary to increase its authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock to such number of shares as shall be sufficient for such purpose.


(e)

Stock Dividends, Splits, Combinations and Reclassifications . If the Corporation shall (i) declare a dividend or other distribution payable in securities, (ii) split its outstanding shares of Common Stock into a larger number, (iii) combine its outstanding shares of Common Stock into a smaller number, or (iv) increase or decrease the number of shares of its capital stock in a reclassification of the Common Stock including any such reclassification in connection with a merger, consolidation or other business combination in which the Corporation is the continuing entity (any such corporate event, an " Event "), then in each instance the Conversion Rate shall be adjusted such that the number of shares issued upon conversion of one share of Class B Convertible Preferred Stock will equal the number of shares of Common Stock that would otherwise be issued but for such Event.


(f)

Certificate as to Adjustments . Upon the occurrence of each adjustment or readjustment of the Conversion Rate pursuant to Section 4 of this Designation, the Corporation at its expense shall promptly compute such adjustment or readjustment in accordance with the terms hereof and cause its principal financial officer to verify such computation and prepare and furnish to each Holder of Class B Convertible Preferred Stock a certificate setting forth such adjustment or readjustment and setting forth in reasonable detail the facts upon which such adjustment or readjustment is based, The Corporation shall, upon the written request at any time of any Holder of Class B Convertible Preferred Stock, furnish or cause to be furnished to such Holder a like certificate setting forth: (i) such adjustments and readjustments; (ii) the. Conversion Rate in effect at such time for the Class B Convertible Preferred, Stock; and (iii) the number of shares of Common Stock and the amount, if any, of other property that at such time would be received upon the conversion of the Class B Convertible Preferred Stock.


(g)

Issue Taxes . The converting Holder shall pay any and all issue and other non­-income taxes that may be payable in respect of any issue or delivery of shares of Common Stock on conversion of shares of Class B Convertible Preferred Stock.


5.

Voting . The holders of Class B Convertible Preferred Stock shall have the right to cast ten (10) votes for each share held of record on all matters submitted to a vote of holders of the Corporation's common stock, including the election of directors, and all other matters as required by law. There is no right to cumulative voting in the election of directors.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF the undersigned has signed this Designation this 23rd day of July, 2015.
