Carmanah Provides UK School Car Park with Solar Outdoor Lighting

Thursday, November 23, 2006

Carmanah's Solar LED Lighting Group recently received an order from Dr. Challoners Grammar School in Amersham, United Kingdom, for three of its GI 3-12 solar outdoor lighting systems. These systems were installed in the school's car park facility.

The school wanted to avoid the substantial cost and disruption to the grounds that would be caused by digging trenches to link existing electricity sources to the car park. Carmanah's solar outdoor lighting systems were the perfect solution. Using a motion sensor, Carmanah's systems light up the car park only when it is in use, providing safety and security with no trenching or cabling costs. Carmanah's outdoor lighting systems are quick and easy to install; these particular systems were installed and completely functional in two hours.

About Carmanah' s GI 3-12 Outdoor Lighting System

Carmanah's GI 3-12 is the most advanced solar-powered general illumination system available on the market. The system combines the most efficient super-flux LED's and Carmanah's patented MICROSOURCE® Energy Management System (EMS). The GI 3-12 provides illumination 365 days a year - even in places that have poor levels of sunlight. It is a cost-effective, non-CO2-producing source of illumination that requires no main power.

Activated by either a Passive Infra Red (PIR) sensor or using a fixed illumination profile, the GI 3-12 provides illumination only when necessary. In the current lighting environment, light is routinely supplied to spaces where no one is present. Over-lighting occurs frequently and there are vast differences in the efficiency of competing lighting sources and in the way systems are designed to deliver light to where it is needed. Carmanah's PIR or fixed profile lighting systems helps to address some of these issues.

Carmanah specializes in combining solar power sources and energy-efficient LEDs to produce lighting systems for a wide range of applications. Carmanah's solar outdoor lighting products are used in public areas such as large car parks, public parks, play areas, security fencing and pathways. The technology used is non-CO2-producing and designed with ultra high levels of energy efficiency in mind, assisting clients to break from established lighting approaches which can result in the lighting of unused areas and the associated waste of both light and energy.
