WISE POWER SYSTEMS PARTNERSHIP TO HELP BOOST USE OF SOLAR ENERGY

Partnership formed to manufacture and market pre-assembled PV solar panel "ready-to-install" kits throughout Ontario, Canada.

To help Ontario, Canada continue to move its green economy forward, Wise Power Systems, a Wilmington, DE-based green energy company, is partnering with Grape Solar to manufacture and market pre-assembled ready to install solar power PV kits in Ontario. Wise will use the PV solar panels manufactured by Grape Solar in the design and engineering of the complete pre-assembled kits.


"Ontario's 2009 Green Energy Act has sparked the rising demand for solar powered energy by making it environmentally and economically beneficial to install renewable energy systems", said Bill Rawheiser, president, Wise Power Systems. "Easy access to solar energy is the key. The pre-engineered PV solar panel kits with Grape panels are complete systems, allowing


Ontarians who choose to power their homes and businesses with renewable energy sources can do so more easily, confidently, and efficiently. This means they will more quickly be able to contribute to a cleaner environment and make money."

Provisions of the Green Energy Act ensure that those who have solar systems will be paid a guaranteed price for all the electricity they produce for at least 20 years, making clean energy a profit-making enterprise.

Further, using the pre-manufactured 10 kW or 250 kW kits greatly reduces the time it takes for installation, making it possible to have a residential solar system installed in as little as a day and larger systems in a matter of weeks.

The pre-assembled solar PV kits will deliver a return on investment in about five years, depending on the amount of energy used. "For systems up to 10 kW, the contract with the Ontario Power Authority guarantees a payout of 80.2 cents per kilowatt hour (kWh)a year for 20 years. So if you use 12,000 kWh a year, you would earn up to $10,000 annually," said Wise.

The pre-assembled kit expedites installation by breaking down the process into four easy steps: install the Wise mounting system, place the pre-assembled panel modules to create the array, run the conduit wire to the pre wired inverters, then have an electrician run wires from the "pre-installed revenue meter" to the electrical grid.

Locally-manufactured pre-engineered kits, which use Grape Solar's PV solar panels, will be marketed to installers as well as directly to end-users in Ontario. All kits will include a step-by-step installation manual and video. "To provide technical help and support, we also will have a hotline and a web site," said Wise.

3M™ Extreme Sealing Tape is a family of single coated, pressure sensitive adhesive tapes designed for difficult sealing applications. The backing on this tape is an ionomer film that is very tough yet flexible and abrasion resistant. The very soft and thick acrylic adhesive has excellent sealing properties and good outdoor durability. This single coated tape is designed to seal over an existing joint, seam, or penetration. The adhesive is designed to adhere well to the ionomer film so that overlapping tape joints can be made while maintaining a strong seal. 3M™ Extreme Sealing Tape - instant sealing that rolls on fast and looks good.
