EYE Lighting Exhibits during Solar Power International 2012 in Orlando, FL

Visit EYE Lighting at Booth No. 1048 for the Latest Industry News

MENTOR, OH (July 23, 2012) – EYE Lighting International, a leading manufacturer of lamps, luminaires, and related lighting products, will share its views on the latest trends and emerging markets in the solar energy industry at Booth No. 1048 during Solar Power International 2012 being held September 10-12, at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL.

During the conference, EYE Lighting will analyze the latest trends and discuss its efforts to develop more efficient products through its research and development in material testing systems. EYE Lighting's super acceleration UV weathering chamber helps to shorten new product cycles by testing materials during the development process so companies are able to guarantee products durability before it reaches its customers.

"There is a growing need for accelerated UV testing to gain insight for new durable and long-lasting products. Whether it's the canvas for a tent, a new paint formula or a solar panel, manufacturers know their return on investment is critical when developing products that meet the predicted life expectancy and needs of its customers," said Gary Brown, EYE Lighting's manager of Applied Optics.

"The benefits of accelerated UV testing are numerous. Being able to test a product's durability against 30 years of exposure to the damaging effects of the sun's UV rays and other natural elements in a matter of 3-4 weeks provides invaluable data to verify designs and shorten product development time," Brown added.

During SPI participants will gain exposure to new markets for solar, new products, service providers and professionals. Through a variety of general sessions, workshops and networking events, the SPI conference program brings the experience of industry veterans and the insights of today's thought leaders together.

Featured Product



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.
