Toronto, Canada [RenewableEnergyAccess.com] Opel International Inc, announced that it has entered into an agreement with Energy 21 for a series of installations of Opel’s CPV panels in Central Europe.
Under the terms of the agreement, Energy 21 will install progressively larger systems in the Czech Republic leading to the installation of its first large solar farm in 2008 and 2009. Energy 21 and Opel have been evaluating Energy 21’s requirements for photovoltaic systems and concluded that Opel’s Mk-I CPV was best possible alternative in terms of efficiency and economics for the Czech market. The systems will also use FEiNA’s solar trackers that Opel will supply under the provisions of its OEM agreement with FEiNA.
“We are very excited about this opportunity to deliver our products into service in Europe, especially with a company with the technology vision that ENERGY 21 has,” said Frank Middleton, Vice President of Marketing for Opel International. “With the price of crude oil reaching record levels, solar energy continues to be an increasingly attractive, and competitively priced renewable energy resource.”
