Carmanah Announces $1M Outdoor Illumination Order in Mexico
VICTORIA, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA (January 3, 2012) Representing the
largest order to date for Carmanah’s (TSX: CMH) solar outdoor lighting,
valued at nearly $1M USD, Mexican officials have selected the EG-series
solar LED outdoor lighting system for an outdoor area project.
Carmanah’s solution, the powerful new standalone EG-series solar outdoor
lights, met all performance requirements and provided the necessary
economics; lower capital cost with new value based product, significant
energy cost savings and eliminating the need for electrical cabling
throughout the deployment. In addition, the product has been designed
for superb vandalism and theft protection. The project was won jointly
by Carmanah and local partner Semex, S.A. de C.V.
The Carmanah EG-series solar LED outdoor lighting portfolio is the
company’s latest generation of reliable and cost-effective solar LED
lighting products specifically designed for cost-sensitive and
developing regions of the world. On November 30th, 2011, Carmanah
launched the anticipated EG40 and EG80 solar outdoor lighting systems to
service cost-sensitive and developing markets with high performance
requirements. Offering a top-of-pole integrated design that eases
installation and protects against vandalism, the EG-series is designed
to be the most robust and reliable solar powered lighting system on the
market. The EG-series solar engines are specified for their location and
power high-efficiency LED luminaires which are available in standard IES
distribution types II, III, IV, V, and flood.
“This project represents the single largest installation of Carmanah
solar outdoor lighting products to date. It communicates the market’s
acceptance of our brand, demonstrates the strength of our relationship
with Semex, and is proof of the EG-series’ ability to meet the needs of
cost-sensitive and developing markets throughout the world.” Bruce
Cousins, Carmanah CEO, states.
In 2010, Carmanah Technologies and Semex entered into a manufacturing
and distribution agreement to allow both companies to bring leading-edge
solar outdoor lighting technologies to Mexico as well as better serve
major clients across the country.
