US Air Force Base in Japan Goes Green with Carmanah Solar Power and LED Lighting

Thursday, June 14, 2007

Carmanah's Power System Group has provided three stand-alone solar power systems to the US Military's procurement outfit, Supplcore, a leader in supply-chain management and logistics solutions, to provide power to the personnel habitat lighting systems at the US Air Force Base in Misawa, Japan. The airbase has also received Carmanah's solar LED lighting solutions for portable airfield lighting.

Although utility power is available at the airbase, Carmanah's solar power systems were chosen as a more reliable and economical alternative to traditional hard-wired power. Also, a solar-powered solution aligns with the US Air Force's ongoing commitment to cost-effective and environmentally friendly energy alternatives.

Carmanah's stand-alone solar power systems are the only integrated, turnkey systems currently available that have been specifically designed for remote industrial applications; in fact, this technology can even be approved for Class I, DIV. II hazardous locations.

In addition to powering the habitat lighting, stand-alone solar power systems are an ideal, reliable remote-power solution for applications such as:

  • Video surveillance
  • Homeland security
  • Pipeline monitors
  • Security lighting
  • Remote communications
  • Perimeter security
  • Water resource security
  • Construction sites
  • Motion sensing
  • Emergency calls

Thousands of Carmanah's solar power systems have been deployed worldwide over the past 15 years. Field proven to endure the extremely harsh environments found at many remote locations, Carmanah solar power systems are shipped as complete, easy-to-assemble kits that can be installed quickly with minimal technical expertise.
