The company claims that the manufacture of its HCPV panels and tracker products, with the support of local industry in the US and Canada, will not only ensure expeditious and cost-effective delivery of North American orders, but contribute to the growth of jobs and the green economy.

Company officials said that manufacturing in both Canada and the US exemplifies OPEL Solar’s abilities to help its customers apply for the solar incentives available that require Ontario or US job content for some portion of a project.

Francisco Middleton, COO of OPEL Solar, said: “The manufacture of OPEL Solar’s products in North America creates jobs and brings the ‘green economy’ to life.

“With so many industries declining recently, solar power represents a bright spot with potential for significant growth for many years to come. OPEL Solar has been responsive to our customers and the solar market by being agile and ready for local content requirements that benefit economies.”
