OPEL Technologies Inc. Connects in New Ways on the Web

SHELTON, CONNECTICUT and TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 30, 2011) - OPEL Technologies Inc. (formerly OPEL Solar International Inc.) (TSX VENTURE:OPL) ("OPEL" or "the Company"), a leading global supplier of high concentration photovoltaic ("HCPV") solar panels and solar tracker systems and a semiconductor developer announces that it offers some new ways for shareholders and customers to connect with the Company on the web.

Interested parties can find OPEL on three Internet websites.

  1. For OPEL Technologies Inc. a new website is launched at www.opeltechinc.com
  2. For OPEL Solar Inc. the website remains the same at www.opelsolarinc.com or www.opelinc.com
  3. For ODIS Inc. a new website is launched at www.ODISinc.com

The new websites are under development; so over time more enhancements that showcase the extraordinary work of our Companies will continue. Visitors to any of the websites can connect to all of the Company websites, as they are linked for ease of navigation.

As previously stated, the purpose of the name changes is to better reflect the two distinct segments of the Company's businesses and to avoid confusion caused by the former name only reflecting the solar side of the business.

"The name change to OPEL Technologies better exemplifies the scope of our expanding Company. The organization has exhibited significant growth and recognition in each of its distinct business divisions, and it is important to establish a parent company that captures each group's mission as they gain momentum and growth in the future," reminds Leon M. Pierhal, OPEL's Chief Executive Officer.

OPEL is committed to providing the most up-to-date Company information to customers, shareholders and all interested parties as accomplishments occur and contribute to the successful growth of the businesses.
