Carmanah Introduces EverGEN Small "Solar Engine" at Solar Power 2007

SOLAR POWER 2007 -- Sometimes the best location for a camera, sensor, or area light is unfortunately not pre-wired for electricity. At the Solar Power 2007 conference in Long Beach, California, today Carmanah introduced a self-contained, solar-powered energy source for this very situation. (photo)

The new product is called the EverGEN solar engine. Carmanah is positioning the product as a way to provide electricity for electronics in locations where grid access is costly or inconvenient.

It's available in five models ranging from 10 to 80 watts. At that power level, the lights would presumably be LEDs, which are Carmana's specialty.

"The solar engine provides a versatile source of power at a fraction of the cost of a traditional hard-wired connection, without trenching, cabling, permits or a monthly utility bill," Carmanah said in its media release.

All components, including solar panels, rechargeable batteries, sensors and electronics, are integrated into a pole-mounted design. Target applications include rural pathways, parks, parking lots, campuses, construction sites, marinas, or remote airfields.
