DRAKER SOLAR DESIGN BECOMES DRAKER LABORATORIES

New Line of Performance Monitoring Gear Set to Debut at Solar Power 2007

Burlington, Vermont—September 10, 2007—The company formerly known as Draker Solar Design is now Draker Laboratories. Draker is changing its name in order to better express the nature of the products and services it now provides. For nearly a decade, Draker has been a respected name in the solar industry, but the growing demand from all sectors of the renewable energy market for accurate and reliable monitoring systems has helped to fully realize Draker's mission.

"While it may seem like a small distinction, it's a critical one," said Draker founder and CEO A.J. Rossman. "When I started Draker nearly ten years ago, we were working mostly in the solar arena and our laboratory was the field. Today, we're developing performance monitoring systems for a full range of renewable energy sources and it's become much more of a customer-driven R&D operation. The new Draker facility is a laboratory designed to meet the needs of renewable energy providers."

The name change precedes the launch of a new line of high performance monitoring systems for medium and large-scale energy projects. Precise monitoring has become an essential part of managing renewable energy projects both to maximize return on investment and comply with reporting standards for contracts, net metering and incentives.

LG Solar Unveils NeON R with Enhanced Aesthetics and Energy Savings

The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
