Carmanah Introduces Solar LED Lighting for Streets and Parking Lots

Carmanah Technologies Corporation (TSX:CMH) today announced its most powerful solar-powered LED area light to date: The EverGEN™ 1500 lighting system is designed for street and parking lot lighting applications, the EverGEN 1500 combines the performance of an AC-powered area light with the versatility of an off-grid solar-powered lighting system.

Providing up to 6,800 lumens of delivered light output, the EverGEN 1500 offers unparalleled performance for a solar-powered LED light of its size.

Using a standard pole-mounted design, the EverGEN 1500 can support up to two LED lighting fixtures to provide a reliable source of bright, uniform light wherever it's needed, without trenching, cabling or grid access.
