VICTORIA, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA (April 27, 2011) Carmanah Technologies (TSX: CMH) is pleased to announce the sale of EverGEN 1520 solar powered lights to a City in the State of Nevada to light a dog park area in a newly developed public park in a deal worth almost $106,000 USD.
The park is brand new and received funding from a Bureau of Land Management sale of public property. Working together with the local municipality, plans for the new park were developed which included using solar powered lights to illuminate the off leash dog run area. The characteristics of the park made accessing grid power difficult from the dog run area. Therefore EverGEN solar powered lights made perfect sense.
The EverGEN 1520 lights are configured with motion sensing that will maximize the amount of light output people (and their canine friends) will enjoy while using the park. The EverGEN 1500-series utilize Carmanah’s patented Energy Management System to ensure long battery life, and maximum light output. The systems will be providing between 3,200 to almost 5,000 lumens output each. With a 5 year limited warranty on the systems, the municipality can be confident that their investment in Carmanah solar powered lights was a wise one.
Ted Lattimore, Carmanah’s CEO, said, “This dog park area is a perfect application for solar powered lights. Ease of installation and the cost savings from not having to access grid power add to the benefits of using solar lighting. It is nice to know that residents will be able to enjoying this new park with their pets under the safety and comfort provided by EverGEN solar powered lights.”
The project was specified by Carmanah lighting agent, Nevada Sales Agency.
