OMCO Solar, a division of OMCO Holdings, has announced a significant expansion to their solar product offerings and construction leadership teams, bringing years of solar experience to support the launch of their exclusive, Field-Fast fixed-tilt racking solution.

Chosen as Director of Solar Product Engineering, Matt Kesler will oversee all current and future solar engineering and design operations.

With a Bachelor of Science in Engineering Physics from the University of Illinois, Kesler began his career with Motorola Semiconductor and its solar venture, Sunvolt, specializing in solid state physics where he developed proprietary photovoltaic cell technology and testing equipment.

Kesler went on to engineering advancements in medical electronics, where he developed countless patented products, one of which was selected as Product of the Year, by Electronic Products magazine. Returning to the solar industry, he was sought after by leading solar companies as a consultant and as the CEO of a tracker start-up prior to joining OMCO Solar.

With such seasoned expertise in multifaceted product development along with his proven expertise in the solar industry, Kesler is uniquely positioned to continue the innovation of OMCO Solar's patented products and additional upcoming market offerings.

Filling another key position, Michael Baker has been announced as OMCO Solar's Director of Construction Services. With more than 15 years of large-scale solar construction project management, Baker's affinity for utility scale solar construction requirements and his unique ability to consistently deliver results on large-scale solar projects with compressed schedules made him the obvious choice for OMCO Solar.

Baker brings years of solar project and construction experience from his history of working with industry leaders such as groSolar, AES Distributed Energy, and RES Americas. Baker's proven experience in leadership roles will guide his decisions when implementing future construction services and strategies to support OMCO's turnkey offerings.

The OMCO Solar Field-Fast fixed-tilt racking system is simple, safe and quick to deploy. This solar mounting system requires fewer structural components, nearly eliminating loose hardware in the field.

OMCO Solar can provide the Field-Fast structures from any of their four, U.S. manufacturing facilities, making this system truly direct from the manufacturer. With over 10 years of solar design and manufacturing experience in the utility sector, launching a proprietary solar mounting system was the logical next step.

"OMCO Solar has adapted proprietary optimal solutions driving from 10 years and 7.5 GW of utility solar experience to create a highly optimized and efficient racking solution. I am proud to have Matt and Michael on the OMCO team as we continue to enhance our offerings to the solar industry," said Todd Owen, Director and General Manager of OMCO Solar.

Scientists elevate quantum dot solar cell world record
Golden CO (SPX) Nov 01, 2017
Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) established a new world efficiency record for quantum dot solar cells, at 13.4 percent. Colloidal quantum dots are electronic materials and because of their astonishingly small size (typically 3-20 nanometers in dimension) they possess fascinating optical properties. Quantum dot solar cells eme ... read more
