Eltek Wins Solar Install With Verizon

Richardson-based Eltek, the supplier of power supplies and related products for the telecom industry, reported today that it has completed an off-grid, hybrid solar power installation for Verizon Wireless. The firm did not say how much the win was worth, but said its hybrid solar-propane DC power systems were installed in Bear Mountain, California, for a wireless basestation. The firm said its systems are being used to manage the entire power infrastructure for the wireless basestation. Verizon's base station--which was already in operation--apparently relies on solar power plus a propane generator for power, because of lack of access to wired power.
