East Bay Business Times - 1:52 PM PST Wednesday, February 7, 2007

Old Country Roofing, Northern California's largest roofing company, said Wednesday it signed agreements with Vancouver-based Xantrex Technology Inc. and San Jose-based Fat Spaniel Technologies to offer comprehensive solar energy conversions and monitoring to Old Country's customers.

The 40 year-old Vacaville-based company serves more than 100 home builders throughout Central and Northern California, and recently partnered with BP Solar, a unit of the British oil giant BP (NYSE: BP) to offer BP Solar's roof-tile solar modules.

The Old Country Roofing solar package will feature Xantrex GT Series Grid Tie Solar Inverters, which convert electricity produced by solar installations from DC to AC power for home use, as well as net metering of surplus electricity into the power grid. Through the net-metering system, solar homeowners receive credit on their bills for unused power sold back to the grid.

Fat Spaniel Technologies Inc. will provide real-time monitoring of solar installations via the Internet.
