Michigan & California, United States [RenewableEnergyWorld.com] Energy Conversion Devices Inc.

ECD and MP2 will partner with Rumble Energy, an Ontario-based renewable energy developer, to install a series of rooftop solar projects throughout Ontario, Canada under the province’s new feed-in-tariff program.
By partnering with other Ontario-based suppliers and contractors, the projects are expected meet the local content requirements set forth by the Ontario Power Authority. The companies expect to complete construction of approximately 10 megawatts (MW) of projects by October 2010.
ECD, through its wholly owned subsidiary, United Solar Ovonic, will provide UNI-SOLAR photovoltaic laminates for the projects. MP2 Capital will lead the financing and development efforts for the projects.
