Mar 28, 2011, 17:23 ET from TEAL Electronics

SAN DIEGO, March 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- TEAL Electronics, a San Diego based subsidiary of SL Industries, Inc. (AMEX: SLI), is pleased to announce the receipt of a $1M order from Energy Innovations, another local San Diego company, for product designed specifically for the Solar Power market.  This is the initial order for a new TEAL product in a growing product family for the Solar Power industry.

TEAL has delivered the initial units of a very high reliability and ruggedized grid-tied power supply for Energy Innovations' Sunflower™ highly concentrated photovoltaic (HCPV) tracking system.  The grid-tied power supply is a device designed to provide electrical power from the grid to the tracking system of a Solar Array until the Array begins producing power, at which point the power supply transitions off-line.

"TEAL Electronics is excited to partner with Energy Innovations, a leader in the HCPV market" said Don Klein, President of TEAL Electronics. "TEAL has been a leading provider of OEM power subsystems for many years, primarily in the Medical Imaging, Semiconductor Test, and Defense-Aerospace markets.  We have recently been focused on growing into the Solar Power market, and this initial win is exciting for the entire company.  It is also very appealing to be developing a partnership with another San Diego based company."
