Carmanah Supplies Solar Power System to City of Seattle, WA

Monday, October 24, 2005

Carmanah has been contracted by the Seattle Public Utility District in Seattle, WA, to supply a 220-watt solar power system for a utility hydroelectric site located in the Cascade Mountains just east of the city.

Seattle Public Utilities provides more than 1.3 million customers in King County with a reliable water supply, as well as essential sewer, drainage, and solid waste services for the City of Seattle. The utility's remote mountaintop hydroelectric site does not have access to conventional grid electricity and required an alternative power supply to monitor water flow in the area.

Mountainous regions are typically remote and difficult to access in the winter, making Carmanah's solar technology- a cost-effective, reliable power supply solution. With thousands of systems already operating reliably in alpine, coastal and desert environments, Carmanah's solar power systems are field-proven to provide the highest standards in reliable, long-term operation.

Designed and built to endure months of extreme weather conditions while maintaining the critical power needed to keep the site operational, Carmanah's solar power systems require little to no ongoing maintenance and use environmentally-friendly solar modules.
