New Solar Lamp from SolarOne and Hadco

SolarOne Solutions and Hadco unveiled a solar powered post top style lamp for decorative lighting applications at the Sullivan Renaissance Conference and Expo this past Saturday in Bethel, NY. The lighting system integrates photovoltaic power and LED lighting technology into a fixture that is reminiscent of 19th century gas lamps. The system was designed to address concerns of architects and planners who consider decorative lighting systems powered by bulky solar panels and batteries aesthetically unappealing. Also, increases in LED and solar cell efficiency combined with refinements in control technology enable SolarOne’s system to produce dramatically more light for longer periods of time for given solar panel/battery dimensions.
