US Navy Buys SA Solar Floodlights

The United States Navy base in Djibouti buys solar floodlights from SolEnergy, Cape Town.

SolEnergy who specialise in both solar powered LED floodlights and mains powered LED lighting have recently supplied the United States naval base in Djibouti with 45 LED solar powered floodlights for use on the naval base. Earlier in the year the same lights were supplied to the US Army in Iraq and used for security lighting. Special modifications were made to these floodlights incorporating bomb proof casings and glass.

SolEnergy and its sister company LED Energy Solutions are one of the major African suppliers of Solar Lighting and LED lighting products which in the case of LED mains lights can provide power consumption savings of up to 70% with lifespans of in excess of 50,000 hours.
Colin Wilkinson The Group CEO says that the replacement of Fluorescent tubes with LED tubes particularly to large commercial and industrial users is rapidly becoming a major part of their business due to the massive power savings that LED lighting products are able to offer.
LED Energy Solutions are the only company on the African continent that offers corporate clients a Rental option on major retro fitting contracts with rentals based on the cost saving to the client. A total win win situation for the client with no maintenance for the duration of the contract, no up front capex investment and substantial cost savings over the duration of the contract!

Dynapower - MAXIMIZE PRODUCTION AND REVENUES WITH SOLAR PLUS STORAGE

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.
