SOLARONE' DEBUTS SoLed'-LX01 SIGNATURE LIGHT AT LIGHTFAIR INTERNATIONAL

This unique light is designed to appeal to environmentally-minded, energy-conscious communities (e.g university campuses) and aesthetically-oriented architects and landscape designers alike.

New York , New York . On April 12, 2005 at this year's International LightFair exhibit, SolarOne' Solutions, LLC of Framingham, Ma will proudly unveil a sleek new solar electric overhead white LED light: the SoLed' LX01 for pathway and park lighting. Collaborating with acclaimed industrial designer Amelia Amon, custom solar panel manufacturer, Atlantis Energy Systems and solar cell manufacturer, SunPower Corporation, this unique light is designed to appeal to environmentally-minded, energy-conscious communities (e.g university campuses) and aesthetically-oriented architects and landscape designers alike.


This innovative light incorporates several new "state-of-the-art" technologies including:

* SolarOne's new patent-pending SoLed' - mc2 - Solid State Intelligent Lighting Management System

* Supercharged, space saving, aesthetically pleasing, solar panel made with highly efficient and attractive SunPower solar cells in double-glass encapsulated package

* High brightness, "target-able" white LEDs, offering highly effective, highly reliable all-temperature operation.

"This effectively wireless lighting system embodies the design characteristics and technical innovations that will transform markets, once thought to be mature, into ones that are dynamic and rapidly growing", states SolarOne president, Moneer Azzam.

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
