COLOGNE, Germany, August 18, 2010 - Innotech Solar is set to present its new "ITS Off-grid" solar
module at the international trade show EU PVSEC. Designed for
grid-independent solar installations, the new module has a particularly
favorable price-performance ratio. Its special product design, which uses
short cells strings, allows a large number of different solar cell types to
be used, including half and third cells. The IEC certified, standard version
of the off-grid module has a capacity of 80 Wp, though customized modules can
be commissioned from as little as 5Wp.

"Our new module fits in very well with the Innotech Solar
business model. On the one hand we are once again optimizing the solar
value-added chain by ensuring that more cells are used efficiently. On the
other hand, enlarging our product range brings us one step closer to
achieving our goal of offering every client the right module for their
specific needs," says Dr Thomas Hillig, Sales Director for Europe at Innotech

Although the 'ITS Off-grid' module from Innotech Solar is an
attractive option for users in Europe who would like to install a
grid-independent power supply, it is also particularly suitable for the
African and South American markets whose power grids are often

The new module type is Innotech Solar's third product line
which involves processing and optimizing solar cells to create
cost-effective, highly efficient modules. This is achieved through two
procedures. In the first of these, cell impurities are isolated using lasers.
The second procedure entails removing parts of non-functioning cells - also
using laser technology - in such a way that the remaining parts of the cells
can operate at full capacity. These half and third cells are used in the "ITS
Economy half cell" and "ITS Economy third cell" modules.

The new module type will be on show from September 6-9 at the
Innotech Solar booth L3/H1/D31 at the 25th European Photovoltaic Solar Energy
Conference and Exhibition (25th EU PVSEC) in Valencia, Spain.
