Carmanah Launches EG145 Solar Streetlight at LIGHTFAIR
2012 MAY 27 - (VerticalNews.com) -- At the 2012 LIGHTFAIR International tradeshow (May 9-11th) in Las Vegas, Nevada, Carmanah Technologies Corp. (TSX: CMH)(Pink Sheets: CMHXF) is launching the EG145 solar outdoor street lighting system, the company's latest addition to its most cost-effective solar-powered outdoor lighting system series to-date. With the addition of this next-generation EG-series system, which provides freeway-level light output from a compact form designed to withstand extreme elements, Carmanah now provides a complete range of solar-powered outdoor lights that address the needs of cost-sensitive markets requiring powerful standalone lighting solutions.
The EG145 solar LED outdoor streetlight is capable of providing just under 3,000 lumens (dusk-to-dawn) for outdoor urban roadway, path and area lighting applications, making it a reliable and robust lighting solution. Through an advanced Carmanah energy management system, the EG145 takes advantage of high cascading efficiencies from solar panel, to charge controller, battery and LED driver. By reducing energy losses and maximizing energy collection, storage and usage, the total system cost is reduced while producing greater light output (energy usage) than any other product for its size in the marketplace. The result is a highly efficient, cost-effective and powerful standalone solar lighting alternative that can significantly reduce project and installation costs where grid-power is either unavailable or costly to access. Featuring a top-of-pole integrated design which allows for an easy and rapid installation and superior theft and vandalism protection, the EG145 leverages award-winning design elements of the Carmanah EverGEN™ 1700 and 1500-series product lines and is tested to withstand extreme weather conditions and wind load ratings of up to 240 kph (150 mph) with 3 second gusts. Built for tropical coastal regions and arid desert applications, the EG-series is engineered to endure corrosion, heat and dust.
"The success of the EG-series and the introduction of a high performance, low-cost EG145 off-grid street lighting system are positioning Carmanah as the leading provider of solar outdoor lighting solutions in international markets," said Bruce Cousins, Carmanah CEO. "With the EG145, Carmanah now offers aggressive dollar per lumen pricing for high-performance and reliable solar lighting products, capable of meeting small pathway to freeway lighting applications."
