April 28, 2009
Date Announced: 28 Apr 2009 Victoria B.C. –- Carmanah Technologies will be participating in this year’s New York Lightfair May 5 to May 7, 2009 and showcasing its most powerful solar-powered LED area light to date: the EverGEN™ 1500 general illumination system. Designed for street and parking lot lighting applications, the EverGEN 1500 solar-powered area light combines the high output of a traditional AC-powered area light with the versatility of a stand-alone power source. Delivering up to 6,800 lumens of illumination, the EverGEN 1500 offers a bright, versatile and cost-effective solar-powered lighting alternative. Using a standard pole-mounted design, the EverGEN 1500 can support up to two lighting fixtures per pole. With no trenching, cabling or grid access required, the EverGEN 1500 installs easily with minimal technical expertise, at a fraction of the cost of a hard-wired system. By providing the brightest output for a solar-powered light of this size, the EverGEN 1500 can also save money by requiring fewer units to light a given area.Featuring the BetaLED LEDway™ lighting fixture manufactured for Carmanah by industry-leading LED lighting manufacturer Beta Lighting, the new EverGEN 1500 provides superior optical control through the BetaLED NanoOptic™ technology. By directing light only where needed, the EverGEN 1500 offers convenient “dark-sky” friendly illumination (as specified by the International Dark-Sky Association) for streets, parking lots and more.
