    SHELTON, CONNECTICUT and TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 24, 2011)OPEL Solar International Inc. (TSX VENTURE:OPL) ("OPEL" or "the Company"), a leading global developer and supplier of ground-based and rooftop photovoltaic tracker systems, and high concentration photovoltaic ("HCPV") solar panels, announced today that they have signed a definitive agreement to install a tracker-based solar system at the Aquarion Water Company's ("Aquarion") D.W. Loiselle Water Treatment Plant at Trap Falls Reservoir in Shelton, Connecticut. This Aquarion solar facility advances OPEL's and Aquarion's commitment to environmental stewardship. The project will showcase OPEL Solar's superior solar tracker products. This solar facility will use both the TF-800 single-axis tracker and the SF-45 dual-axis tracker. OPEL's trackers follow the path of the sun during the day to produce more energy from any brand of solar panel than could be expected from the same panel in a "fixed" or non-tracking installation.Leon M. Pierhal, OPEL Solar CEO, commented, "We are pleased to reach this agreement with Aquarion for this solar project at its water treatment facility. Of significant importance is that this is the first installation for OPEL Solar at a private or municipally owned water plant." Pierhal added, "Typically, water and waste water plants provide a great opportunity to utilize clean solar energy to reduce power purchases. Our Solar tracker installations can be an ideal, cost effective model for private utilities and municipalities nationwide."
