Beit Shemesh-based Solel won a contract to upgrade seven solar plants in California owned and operated by FPL Energy. The company's spokesman said the deal to supply FPL with 48,000 of Solel's third-generation thermo-solar collection units was worth "several tens of millions of dollars."
Solel also said it has completed development of its Solel 6 system, which uses parabolic troughs to concentrate solar energy and produces 50% more energy than previous models.
Separately, Netanya-based Solar Power unveiled a new system for pivoting photovoltaic panels to aim them at the sun throughout the day, which would increase production capacity by 30%-60%.
