Rochester Hills’ United Solar Ovonic brings in another contract

Score another hit for United Solar Ovonic, now that it has nailed down another order for its solar panel products.

The Rochester Hills-based firm will provide up to 25 megawatts of its UNI-SOLAR photovoltaic laminates to Italy-based Enel Green Power. The solar panels will go on top of buildings in Italy owned by Enel Green Power, Italy’s largest utility.

The
UNI-SOLAR products will be installed on a variety of commercial and
logistic buildings. They are expected to begin producing power later
this year and to produce 33 million kilowatt hours annually once
they’re fully operational. That’s enough renewable energy for 13,000
households, an amount of energy that would produce 21 tons of CO2
emissions annually from traditional energy production.

United Solar Ovonic is a subsidiary of Rochester Hills-based Energy Conversion Devices. The alternative energy firm has notched a number of high-profile orders, which can be seen here and here.
