Carmanah Technologies Corporation (TSX: CMH) will present its newest innovation to the Canadian solar industry at this year's CANSIA Solar Conference 2007 in Toronto, Ontario. The new EverGEN™ solar engine - unveiled in September at the Solar Power 2007 conference in Long Beach, California - is a self-contained, solar-powered energy source that provides dependable, high-quality electricity for lights, sensors, cameras and more - anywhere there's access to the sun. Available in five models ranging from 10 to 80 watts in power, the EverGEN solar engine is expected to be of particular interest to Ontario attendees due in part to the province's industry-leading support of solar initiatives.
Quick and easy to install, the EverGEN solar engine provides a versatile source of power at a fraction of the cost of a traditional hard-wired connection, without trenching, cabling, permits or a monthly utility bill. All components - including solar panels, rechargeable batteries, sensors and electronics - are integrated within a sleek, compact and durable pole-mounted design.
As a stand-alone power source, the EverGEN solar engine is ideal for locations where the best spot for a camera, sensor or area light may be impractical or impossible due to lack of access to grid power, for example, rural pathways, parks, parking lots, campuses, construction sites, marinas or remote airfields.
Solar-Powered LED Lights
When paired with Carmanah's line of LED luminaires, any EverGEN solar engine can become a versatile, stand-alone lighting solution. Carmanah's industrial-grade LED luminaires provide a bright, focused output with minimal glare or spillover to surrounding areas, making them ideal for urban locations. As a combined solution with Carmanah's growing line of LED luminaires, the EverGEN solar engines are among the most versatile, efficient, reliable and environmentally friendly outdoor lighting solutions available.
Smart Energy Management
For areas with reduced access to sunlight, Carmanah's patented MICROSOURCE® energy management system (EMS) automatically balances energy requirements with available resources, helping each solar engine to learn and adapt to its environment. With MICROSOURCE EMS, lighting characteristics such as automatic on/off times and default light output levels can also be customized for maximum efficiency, reliability and convenience.
The EverGEN solar engine is the latest in a long line of solar-powered innovations by Carmanah Technologies - a global provider of renewable and energy-efficient technologies with more than 250,000 installations worldwide. Since designing and building the world's first self-contained LED marine navigation light in 1993, Carmanah has developed a range of innovative solar-powered solutions for multiple industries. As a marine lantern, Carmanah's navigation lights are compact, economical and virtually indestructible; the solar-powered LED lanterns can lower costs by a factor of ten while improving performance and virtually eliminating maintenance. They have become indispensable among coast guards, waterway authorities, navies and boaters. Today, Carmanah designs and manufactures solar LED technology for aviation, industrial, roadways, transit and marine applications, as well as solar power systems for commercial, residential and recreational customers around the world.
