Opel Solar Signs Deal To Provide Tracking Devices For Projects

A Shelton-based solar energy equipment maker has been selected to provide some of its devices for a number of projects being done in Northern California.

Terms of Opel Solar’s deal with Denver-based Conergy U.S. were not immediately available, the companies said in press release issued Thursday. Conergy’s German corporate parent is one of the world’s largest solar energy manufacturers and the deal with Opel Solar calls for the Connecticut company to provide its TF-800 series of single axis trackers for the projects, the first of which was started in August.

Opel Solar’s devices allow the panels that collect the sun's energy to turn and follow it as it moves across the sky.

“Conergy chose OPEL trackers for this project because of their combination of cost efficiency and quality,” said David Vincent, Conergy’s project development manager.
