Carmanah: Lot lights for NASA's Stennis Space Center
NASA's Stennis Space Center Mississippi is lighting a new onsite parking facility with solar-LED technology. As part of the Stennis Space Center's new Cryogenics Control Center facility, the car park will be equipped with bright and efficient EverGEN™ 1520 solar-LED parking lot lights from Carmanah Technologies.
Recently showcased at the Lightfair International tradeshow and conference in New York City, Carmanah's EverGEN™ 1500-series lights represent the company's most powerful solar-LED area lights to date. Designed as a practical alternative to traditional HID (high intensity discharge) lights, the powerful new design combines the performance of a hard-wired streetlight with the convenience and versatility of a stand-alone solution. AMA Lighting, Carmanah's authorized lighting representative for the region, will work closely with NASA throughout the installation process.
As part of a LEED green-building project, NASA needed a lighting system that was both powerful and energy efficient. Traditional hard-wired lighting options would have exceeded the Center's total allowable energy consumption and affected the facility's LEED rating, so to meet the facility's stringent lighting requirements without increasing overall electricity usage, NASA engineers identified Carmanah's solar-powered LED lights as the perfect solution. An installation of EverGEN 1520 lights would provide a reliable source of bright, uniform light while consuming no additional electricity.
As a stand-alone alternative to traditional hard-wired streetlights, Carmanah solar-powered lights deliver effective outdoor illumination without trenching, cabling or grid access. Featuring custom fixtures by leading LED-lighting designer Beta Lighting, Carmanah solar-powered lights offer superior output and performance in accordance with IESNA (Illuminating Engineering Society of North America) guidelines. A full-cutoff "Dark Sky"-friendly design directs light only where needed (preventing glare or spillover of light onto neighboring properties or into the night sky), while integrated energy management capabilities ensure optimal lighting performance year round.
