Orion embraces solar power

Abstract:
Maybe, in 2011, Orion Energy Systems somehow will create a waterfall for production of hydroelectricity.

After all, the Manitowoc-based power technology enterprise is currently completing installation of photovoltaic (PV) solar panels from California-based Solyndra, Inc., its "strategic partner."

And later this year, Orion plans to put a wind turbine on property flanking its Technology Center on Woodland Drive.

"It's always about the money," said Mike Potts, Orion's executive vice president. "Putting together the various technologies can change the energy paradigm for the United States."
