Sol Unveils New, Off-Grid Oasys™ Shelter LED Lighting Solution

Solar Powered Oasys™ Sets New Standard in Shelter LIghting

Palm City, Fl. — Sol, Inc. the world leader in solar powered LED outdoor lighting is proud to release a new, off-grid, LED shelter lighting product. Sol's solar-powered Oasys™ sets a new standard in sustainable, energy efficient shelter lighting.

The Oasys™ shelter LED lighting system integrates an LED fixture, energy storage and lighting controller into one unit allowing for quick and easy installation in any type of shelter or gazebo.

"The Oasys™ was designed based on customer requests for a solar lighting solution for larger shelters and smaller remote buildings." said Audwin Cash, VP of Engineering. "Additionally, because Oasys™ is solar powered and easy to install, it has zero electrical costs and minimal installation costs and enables customers to install it anywhere."

Sol recently completed trial installations in several North American markets, proving that Oasys™ provides enhanced security lighting for shelters in any location.

Oasys™ has additional advantages:
• Uniform LED brilliance. Compared with fluorescent bulbs, Oasys™ LEDs provides a brighter white light that improves visibility and safety for visitors, guests and staff. Oasys™ is available in several color and configurations to match most shelters.
• Easy to install. Oasys™ is strictly plug-and-play with no additional wiring, which means very low labor and assembly costs.
• Built to endure. Designed for new and retrofit projects, Sol offers an industry-leading, 5-year warranty for the Oasys™. Plus, Oasys™ is vandal-resistant, with tamper resistant hardware.
• Energy efficient. Oasys™ is powered by the sun, which means there are no energy bills.
• Maintenance free. Oasys™, made with rugged marine-grade aluminum housing with a powder coat finish. The LEDs last up to 70,000 hours (LM70), which is 20+ years of brilliant performance.
• Sustainable. Oasys™ systems can be installed in remote or environmentally sensitive locations, wherever desired or required, with no trenching or hardwiring. There is no risk of hazardous disposal.

The addition of energy storage to an existing or new utility-scale PV installation allows system owners and operators the opportunity to capture additional revenues. Traditional storage plus solar applications have involved the coupling of independent storage and PV inverters at an AC bus or the use of multi-input hybrid inverters. An alternative approach - coupling energy storage to PV arrays with a DC-to-DC converter - can help maximize production and profits for existing and new utility-scale installations. DC-Coupled Utility-Scale Solar Plus Storage leads to higher round-trip efficiencies and lower cost of integration with existing PV arrays and at the same time, opens up new revenue streams not possible with traditional AC-coupled storage, including clipping recapture and low voltage harvesting, while being eligible for valuable tax incentives.
