The Financials for the second quarter of 2009 showed that OPEL's revenue grew slightly over the second quarter of 2008, as it continued to achieve its objectives as outlined in the Company's MD&A.

To date, 220kW of this installation are installed and providing power to the grid. This will be recognized as revenue once the field is sold to a third party.

"We are pleased to that report OPEL continues to execute on its growth path during the second quarter and maintain a solid cash position, particularly during these unprecedented economic conditions," said Michael McCoy, OPEL's Chief Financial Officer. OPEL continues to focus on completing the multiple phases of our first Spanish installation, growing our sales force to take advantage of a variety of new opportunities and driving down the cost of our products."
