Carmanah Receives Additional Airport Lighting Order from Boulder City Airport

Monday, August 28, 2006

Carmanah has received an additional order from the Boulder City Municipal Airport in Nevada for 91 solar-powered LED airport lights. The order is comprised of both Model A601 taxiway edge lights and Model A601 obstruction lights.

Offering flight services for both private and commercial airplanes, the Boulder City Municipal Airport is a general aviation facility serving the air transportation needs of the citizens of Boulder City and its surrounding communities. This order follows two previous orders for Carmanah's solar LED airfield lighting, which is indicative of the success this airport is having with the Company's technology. The primary motivation for choosing Carmanah's lights is the reduced installation and maintenance costs, as well as the field-proven reliability.
