OPEL Solar Rolls Out New HCPV Panel

OPEL Solar Inc., a developer and supplier of high concentration photovoltaic (HCPV) panels and solar tracking systems, has launched a new HCPV solar panel, the Mk-IX.

The Mk-IX is designed for utility-grade, grid-connected solar systems in medium to high solar irradiance climates, and uses a dual-element refractive concentrator architecture, in combination with triple-junction solar cells produced by Boeing-Spectrolab.

OPEL Solar says the Mk-IX uses a less complex and easily repeatable assembly process that can be transferred to different markets, thus generating more local manufacturing jobs. The Mk-IX concentrators will begin shipping in spring 2011.
