Carmanah Receives Additional Order for Taxiway Lights from US Air Force

Monday, August 21, 2006

Carmanah's Solar LED Lighting Group has received an additional order from the US Air Force for 72 taxiway lights and corresponding mounting accessories. These lights are scheduled for installation at a remote training location in the continental United States.

For this particular installation, the US Air Force required taxiway lighting at a remote landing area for covert and overt training operations. There is currently no access to grid power and therefore conventional hardwired taxiway lighting was not a cost-effective option. Carmanah's solar-powered LED lighting technology was selected as the ideal solution as it is simple to install, completely autonomous, virtually maintenance-free, and has been field-proven to be reliable. This particular airfield is unmanned, so Carmanah's taxiway lights will activate automatically year-round from dusk till dawn.

With more than 250,000 installations worldwide, Carmanah is a global leader in renewable and energy-efficient technologies. The Company now has more than 25,000 solar-powered LED aviation lights, solar-powered general illumination lighting and solar power systems in place with the US Air Force, US Army, Marine Corps, US Navy and US National Guard operations on five continents.
