Eltek signs reseller agreement with Empire Clean Energy



Eltek, a leader in high-efficiency power systems for telecommunications, industrial applications and renewable energy, today announced that it has signed a non-exclusive reseller's agreement with New York-based Empire Clean Energy Supply. Empire Clean Energy is a stocking distributor that is known for delivering expedited service, quick response times and strong customer support. The company's location just outside New York City means customers statewide will get fast delivery of Eltek THEIA HE-t solar inverters. THEIA HE-t inverters have peak efficiency of 97 percent, the highest for single-phase, isolated inverters used in grid-connected photovoltaic systems. Lightweight and compact, the units feature a flexible connection set, backlit color display and integrated Web server for quick configuration and easy operation. The THEIA HE-t inverters are award-winning and have earned approval by the CEC, UL and international SunSpec Alliance. Eltek has partnered with Empire Clean Energy to be its main business development support for THEIA HE-t inverters in both Long Island and the New York Metro region, as demand for residential solar power in those markets expands in the coming years. Much of this growth can be attributed to ongoing residential solar incentive programs being offered by the Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) and by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) for state programs outside of Long Island. Currently Long Island is one of the leading residential solar markets in the nation. "Eltek's partnership with Empire Clean Energy is a great fit in the expanding New York market," said David Leal, Eltek Vice President of Sales. "This joint venture puts Eltek in the right place at the right time, and ensures fast, efficient delivery of our solar products for residential installations in New York." "Adding the Eltek THEIA HE-t inverter line to our product line lets us give our dealers a new option for applications where high-efficiency inverters with built-in Web servers can improve a solar system ROI," said Bill Feldmann, Chief Operating Officer of Empire Clean Energy. "We look forward to a long, fruitful relationship with Eltek." Eltek Empire Clean Energy
