    SHELTON, CONNECTICUT and TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 12, 2011)OPEL Solar International Inc. ("the Company" or "OPEL Solar")(TSX VENTURE:OPL), a leading global developer and supplier of ground-based and rooftop solar tracker systems and high concentration photovoltaic ("HCPV") solar panels announced today that they will supply OPEL Solar TF-850 single-axis trackers to Greenlight Power Company ("Greenlight") for the launch of a 125kW ("kilowatt") project which they will be installing for a solar farm in a Kent County, Maryland business park. This is the first phase of a 1.4MW ("Megawatt") multiphase solar development at the same location. The OPEL Solar trackers will increase the project's energy production approximately 24% over what would be expected from the same solar PV ("photovoltaic") panels using a fixed installation. The output from the project will be sold to Choptank Electric Cooperative, a Maryland company owned by Touchstone Energy Cooperative. This first phase of the Greenlight project is forecasted to produce approximately 182 MWh ("Megawatt-hours") of energy annually.Pierhal continued, "The choice of the TF-850 tracker validates our recent strategic decision to supply clean, solar energy directly for industrial structures. Also, it is pleasing that the tracker is growing in popularity as the tracker of choice, giving customers more energy and more flexibility with its ability to use any type of solar panel."
