SOLARONE' ANNOUNCES FIRST ORDER FOR NEW MC2 LED LIGHTING TECHNOLOGY

SolarOne' Solutions LLC has announced that the company has received its first orders for SOLED' area lighting using its new patent-pending MC2 technology powered by solar energy. One such order came from a New England-based university for lighting a dark pathway to its athletic facility.

SolarOne' Solutions LLC has announced that the company has received its first orders for SOLED' area lighting using its new patent-pending MC2 technology powered by solar energy. One such order came recently from a New England-based university for lighting a dark pathway to its athletic facility.


"Our proprietary MC2 technology is able to deliver perhaps the most energy-efficient and illumination-effective lighting available in a solar lighting system", said Moneer Azzam, President of SolarOne. "Combined with our SOLED' lights, the programming and features of the MC2 controller allow customers to select the light levels, light quality and timing profiles that suit the needs of their specific applications". The company is already observing a 40% improvement in lumen per watt efficiency over prior versions of the system and estimates that users could as much as double the run-time performance with the new energy manager.

"MC2 embodies years of experience and lessons of working with solar powered systems. The technology is intended to make any facility or municipal manager at least as comfortable with a SOLED' lighting system as with any conventional area light on the market if not more so. In fact, the level of control offered by MC2 could end up setting a new standard for all area lighting systems", said Azzam. The development of the MC2 technology is supported in part by the Massachusetts Technology Collaborative SEED Program. The properties integrated into this first generation of MC2 controller design include:

• Microprocessor controls
• Programmable dimming profile
• Adjustable brightness levels
• Highly efficient driver circuit
• Fiber optic controls for isolation from interference sources
• User selectable intelligent battery sensing to avoid unintended outages due to low state of charge
• Motion detection
• Remote programming controls
• Harvest-Store' Data logger ready

SOLED' lights operate independent of the electric grid, relying on a solar panel for its power source. This ensures that they will remain lit, even during grid-connected power shortages. Additionally, their independent power source enables them to be sited flexibly and installed easily, without incurring the significant expenses of trenching and repaving. SolarOne Solutions offers SOLED' overhead lights for pathways, sidewalks, parking lots, and bus shelters.
