Distributed by Orion Solar, Lightguard™ is a remote monitoring feature for the EverGen M series solar powered street light, which allows for them to be closely monitored without the hassle of having to leave the office.
Orion Solar is the distributor of this product for Carmanah Technologies who sell the EverGen M Series lights and Lightguard™, developed by their subsidiary company, Sol Inc. The unique Lightguard™ feature uses smart satellite connectivity to assist communities and municipalities to reduce the manpower and money spent on street light maintenance services.
The recently launched EverGen M Series features a new and unique energy management system that includes the Lightguard™ feature. This improved technology processes solar power so efficiently that a more compact system is allowed, which reduces the overall system cost while still meeting public lighting requirements. This also means that in southerly states like Tasmania, solar lighting for parks or streets is more viable than ever before.
“We are happy to see this continuing trend,” said Mimi Drabit, Division Manager for Sol Inc. “It’s often assumed that solar won’t work unless you live in perennially sunny states, but we’ve proven with past projects that solar is viable for many locations – and we build our systems to last.”
The City of Aurora in Colorado hoested one of the first installations of Series M lights. “A standard lighting solution was too costly, given the location of Sand Creek Park," said Ed Shalkey, project manager for the City of Aurora. "We’re always looking for ways to include more sustainable and environmentally friendly amenities in our parks. Our general contractor suggested we check out the EverGen lights as he had recently installed them elsewhere. I went and looked at the light and said ‘that’s just what we need’!”
Orion Solar has received orders for the EverGen Series M from existing customers Mackay Regional Council and the Roadtek Division of Queensland Transport and Main Roads.
Lightguard™ provides a much-needed feature that will allow for lights to be monitored and maintained with greater efficiency, and guarantees a 10-year warranty.
