Carmanah Launches the New EG40 and EG80: Reliable Solar LED Outdoor Lights Designed for Developing Countries

Carmanah Technologies (TSX: CMH) is pleased to announce the launch of the EG40 and EG80 solar LED outdoor lighting systems, the latest generation of reliable and cost-effective solar LED lighting products specifically designed for developing regions of the world. The EG40 and EG80 feature adaptive lighting capabilities and a simple top-of-pole design that allows the Series to deliver leading dollar per kilo-lumen output in the 1000-8500 lumen range. Leveraging award-winning design elements of the company’s EverGEN™ 1700 and 1500-series products, the EG40 and EG80 systems offer superior performance and features at a value price. The introduction of the EG40 and EG80 systems expands Carmanah’s existing outdoor solar lighting portfolio, allowing the company to service cost-sensitive markets with robust products that maintain market leading performance.

Bruce Cousins, CEO of Carmanah commented, “The new EG40 and EG80 systems address the need for a reliable cost-effective outdoor lighting solution for markets with developing infrastructure where standalone solar lighting can offer a cost effective alternative to traditional AC lighting systems.  We expect the new EG40 and EG80, with all of its major features, to be well received by governments, private industry and contractors in this market.”

The top-of-pole integrated design of the EG40 and EG80 allows for an easy and rapid installation as well as protection against vandalism. The EG40 and EG80 design is wind load rated to 241 kph (150 mph) with 3 second gusts, protecting the system from extreme weather such as hurricane-level winds. Engineered to prevent theft and vandalism, the EG40 and EG80 are ideal for deployment in public and private roadways and area lighting applications.

The EG40 and EG80 engines power high-efficiency LED luminaires that are available in standard IES distribution types II, III, IV, V, and flood. Both systems feature a 3-year limited warranty.
