A new solar-powered area light has received the Judges’ Citation Award at LIGHTFAIR International’s “LFI Innovation Awards” in Las Vegas.

In a category encompassing exterior lighting products for roadway, sports, floodlight, outdoor architectural and site lighting applications, Carmanah’s new EverGEN™ solar-powered LED (light emitting diode) luminaire received the Judges’ Citation Award — an honor awarded at the discretion of a panel of renowned lighting professionals.

Key factors that helped judges choose Carmanah’s EverGEN solar-powered area light included the sustainability of this solar-powered lighting alternative, a stand-alone form factor that enables the product to be easily installed as a single integrated unit, and the product’s specifier-friendly presentation.

Now this product is even better, thanks to a partnership between Beta Lighting and Carmanah Technologies. As an integrated solution, Carmanah’s new solar-powered area light combines the versatility of Carmanah’s EverGEN solar engine with the efficiency and unparalleled performance of the new BetaLED™ THE EDGE™ light fixture from Beta Lighting.

Based on THE EDGE line of commercial and industrial light fixtures from Beta Lighting, the new BetaLED fixture has been specifically designed for maximum compatibility with Carmanah’s EverGEN solar engine. The result is Carmanah’s brightest and best performing solar powered area light to date: a versatile stand-alone lighting solution that can be installed in minutes to illuminate parks, paths, kiosks and other outdoor areas. Directing light only where needed, the new solar-powered area light is “dark-sky friendly” as specified by the International Dark-Sky Association (IDA).
