Carmanah Provides Remote Solar Power Systems to North American Energy Leader

Wednesday, April 4, 2007

Carmanah's Power System Group has provided 7 unique remote solar power systems to Duke Energy Gas Transmission, a North American leader in developing energy infrastructure and connecting major natural gas supply basins to growing markets.

Carmanah's solar power systems were installed for the Grizzly Valley Block Valve Warning System in Chetwynd, BC, which is located in the foothills of the Canadian Rockies. Each system includes a BP Solar 125 watt solar module, a Carmanah phase change battery enclosure, a tower mount and a Carmanah PV-3 controller. No traditional power was available to run the block valve warning systems, therefore Carmanah's remote solar power technology was the perfect solution. These particular solar power systems are unique in their use of the phase change battery enclosure; which helps to maintain battery capacity and extend the life of battery system.
