Connecticut Solar Energy Company
OETI was organized in 1984, and since then has been engaged in the design, development and manufacture of patented, non-tracking concentrating solar collectors, and the installation, and service of all types of solar energy systems. The main thrust of this effort has been to reduce the complexity, and cost of solar thermal products and increase their reliability by reducing the number of their components through the use of optical concentration.
In 1997, OETI was reorganized to provide expanded electro-optical, electronic, mechanical, and instrument system design and development services from concept definition, system and worst case analyses, design, fabrication, and test of electro-optical instruments and/or subsystems of larger electro-optical systems for ground and space utilization.
OETI has a staff of interdisciplinary senior level engineers/managers, having a cumulative experience of over 150 man-years, who have worked closely together for over 10 years.
Our products have been installed locally in Fairfield County Connecticut for homeowners, as well as nationally and internationally by aerospace companies and universities.
TECHNICAL BACKGROUND OF GERALD FALBEL, PRESIDENT, CEO
He has over 60 years of experience in Aerospace and Solar Energy Technologies, has over 35 issued patents, and has written over 21 technical papers.
TECHNICAL BACKGROUND OF PETER CUMMINGS – ARCHITECTURAL DESIGNER
In addition to his home and commercial designs, Peter is considered an expert in building homes in high hazard areas and has been a guest speaker at several Building and Engineering conventions throughout Fairfield County. He also custom designs and fabricates furniture and built-ins for his clients at his PCI facility located in Bridgeport CT.
Peter’s hands-on experience and extensive knowledge of designing and renovating new and existing structures gives him the ability to provide clear cost estimates for the design and construction of new homes and building projects. Working 3D models of new and/or existing structures at the concept level allows Peter an insight into what the actual final fixes or structural design will be. This 3D model creates a better understanding of how the structure will be engineered as well as the most cost effective way to accomplish this.
Peter has been working with Gerald Falbel, and OPTICAL ENERGY TECHNOLOGIES INC. for over ten years in the design and construction of solar energy systems of all kinds.
