ICP SOLAR LAUNCHES NEW RANGE OF INDUSTRIAL SOLAR PANELS

New products respond to demand for top quality solar panels for industry applications under 50 watts

MONTREAL, CANADA, Aug. 31, 2005 - ICP Solar, a leading manufacturer of products based on advanced solar technology, today announced the launch of a new range of industrial solar panels.


ICP's new industrial solar panels are tailor-made for a variety of off-grid solar energy applications with less than 50 watt power requirements. Minimum power ratings range from 3 to 42 watts, voltage outputs may be custom configured from 6 to 36 volts and individual applications are fractions or multiples of standard ICP solar panels (930mm X 330mm or approximately 37 X 13 inches).

Based on ICP's proprietary solar technology and manufactured according to strict ISO9001:2000 processes, ICP Solar industrial solar panels are framed in anodized aluminum to offer exceptional durability. Recent independent product testing by researchers from Humboldt State University and the University of California, Berkeley established ICP industrial solar panels as the most powerful product in their class.

"Our new industrial solar panels satisfy a major need in the marketplace that few other manufacturers are even attempting to address," said Sass Peress, President and CEO, ICP Solar. "We are going after the 'under 50 watt' industrial solar market segment with panels that lead the industry in terms of output and durability. Manufacturers will be able to integrate our solar technology and market products of exceptional quality at competitive prices with the confidence of access to a secure supply. At a time when demand for solar panels is exceeding worldwide production, our new product is ready to be shipped today!" Mr. Peress added.

WS510 Secondary Standard

WS510 Secondary Standard

In the monitoring of large photovoltaic (Utility Scale), in assessing potential sites (Solar-assessment), or in up and coming electricity cost saving initiatives projects (Commercial & Industrial), the WS510 now provides the market a secondary standard pyranometer, ultrasonic wind speed, ultrasonic wind direction, temperature, pressure and humidity all in a single unit.. This sensor meets the high demands of the world meteorological organization (WMO) through the active valving at air temperature measurement and the inertia- and maintenance-free measurement of wind speed and wind direction on the ultrasonic principle. Equipped with a Kipp & Zonen pyranometer of the secondary standards, the WS510-UMB Compact weather sensor from Lufft unites the precision of a variety of meteorological individual sensors in a single all-in-one device, for the first time.
