Auburn Hills, Mich.-based United Solar Ovonic, a wholly owned subsidiary of Energy Conversion Devices Inc., has received two orders totaling over $5.8 million of photovoltaic (PV) products from Unimetal S.p.A, an Italy-based supplier of sheet metal roofing materials, to be delivered before September of this year.

Unimetal will integrate the UNI-SOLAR flexible PV laminates in its steel metal roofing materials for distribution in Italy, France and Spain, the company says.

‘With the new feed-in tariff recently approved in Italy, there is a preference for building integrated photovoltaic installations, which received the highest incentive levels,’ says Maarten van Cleef, United Solar Ovonic's key account manager for Southern Europe.
