Carmanah Teams Up for Solar LEDs

Carmanah Technologies Corporation has signed a memorandum of understanding with Dialight Corporation. As two companies in the fast-growing LED (light-emitting diode) lighting market, the companies will now jointly develop and market roadway and aviation lighting for North America’s transportation market.

Victoria, British Columbia – June 2, 2003 [SolarAccess.com] Under the agreement, Carmanah will pair its patented power-management technology for self-contained, solar-powered LED lights with Dialight’s expertise in LED applications and optics engineering. “Through this partnership, we will unite the core competencies of both companies at a time of rapid industry growth,” said Carmanah CEO Art Aylesworth. “The complementary technologies of Dialight and Carmanah will enable the partnership to offer the world’s best solutions for emerging LED lighting applications in the transportation sector.” Carmanah specializes in solar-powered, self-contained LED lighting for a number of commercial industrial markets. The company perfected its patented Automatic Light Control (ALC) technology while engineering navigation lights for harsh marine environments, enabling it to produce the most robust, compact and reliable stand-alone lighting systems available on the market, said the company. Dialight specializes in energy-saving LED fixtures that retrofit incandescent lights for on-the-grid applications. “In 1997, the market for off-grid outdoor lighting was estimated at more than US$160 million annually in the U.S. alone, and it has been growing rapidly ever since,” states Gary Durgin, Vice President of Business Development for Dialight. “With this agreement, we have the ingredients to make the most of this opportunity. Our experience in designing and marketing LED technology for new applications and Carmanah’s expertise in harnessing the cost savings and convenience of solar power will make an effective partnership.”
