insulated battery boxes, designed to protect batteries in harsh climates and temperature extremes, are helping to ensure a reliable source of power for remote solar-powered automatic weather stations throughout the Whistler Blackcomb ski area. These systems, designed and installed in preparation for the 2010 Olympic Games in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, will provide live weather data to the general public via web access at this link.
With no access to electrical infrastructure, these versatile stand-alone systems are perched among the hills and ski slopes on the rugged, mountainous terrain. Most of the stations are permanently fixed, while others can be moved to other locations. Carmanah's insulated battery enclosures will provide safe and secure battery storage in these remote and often sub-zero climates.
The XXI Olympic Games, scheduled to commence in mid February 2010, is committed to inspiring the world with an extraordinary Olympic experience, and a legacy of social, economic and environmental sustainabilty.
