By Greentech Lead Australia: Carmanah Technologies, a
manufacturer of solar LED lights and solar power systems, announced that
the Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads has certified the
Carmanah EG320 outdoor solar lighting system for roadway lighting across the
state. The Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads also has selected
Orion Solar, authorized distributor of Carmanah in Australia, as preferred
Queensland Government decided to install ten Carmanah
LED outdoor lighting systems earlier this year.
Carmanah EG320 outdoor solar lighting
system is designed to address the growing need for high performance
and reliable off-grid lighting. The EG-series eliminates the need to trench
cable, marking them the ideal solution for roadways and areas where
infrastructure is unavailable or costly to access.
Configured specifically for the locations in which they
are deployed, EG-series systems take advantage of optimal solar insolation
values for their installed location which results in a smaller system and
further lowered product cost.
Orion Solar, the Carmanah authorized distributor of
solar-powered outdoor lighting, aviation, marine and traffic products, is an
authority on the aviation, mining, marine, road and rail industries of the
Australian market. Orion Solar is also a corporate member of The Illuminating
Engineering Society of Australia and New Zealand (IES).
“Australia presents many challenges when
considering outdoor lighting including the remoteness of service locations,
unreliable grid power and a reliance on generator equipment. At the same time,
equipment must be able to withstand the wide range of temperature and
environmental extremes. The market is looking for a light that works unabated
through any extreme and functions reliably for years. The EG-series is the
technology that answers these challenges.” said Richard Holliday, general
manager, Orion Solar.
