Why Solar?

Solar airfield technology offers practical, longterm solutions to address the operational and fiscal realities faced by airfield and helipad managers. 

Cost Savings

Capital, operational and maintenance costs are a major concern for all businesses. In hardware alone, Carmanah solar airfield lighting products have been shown to offer up to 50% savings over traditional solutions. All this aside from construction savings and energy savings incurred by our solar powered technology.

With no requirement for underground wiring, Carmanah lights have fewer components subject to failure. Our products are proven to perform maintenance free for up to five years with life expectancy of 15 to 20 years.Our robust, above ground lights come in a simple, "place and go" form factor to install in less than an hour with minimal technical expertise.With no need for extensive construction effort, conduit, cables or trenching, our self-contained solar lighting units offer immediate construction cost savings.Our systems require significantly less power infrastructure such as regulators, transformers, and power control units. Because of the low voltages, Carmanah lights can be maintained simply and safely without disrupting airfield operations.

Self-Contained Solar Powered Lights

Power Reliability

In many aviation scenarios, local grid power may be weak or unavailable altogether. Many aviators operate in austere tactical environment where rapidly deployable lighting systems are required. Electrical brownouts and blackouts are regular occurrences in many parts of the world with potentially disastrous consequences. In addition to unstable grids, grid security issues also reinforce the need for off-grid solutions such as solar power aviation lighting. Our self-contained solar powered lights come with their own independent power supply, which is constantly recharged by the power of the sun. Our lights offer clean, simple, sustainable and effective power.

Industry compliance

Our solar lighting solutions are designed to meet ICAO and FAA photometric standards and have third party validation of their compliance.  Photometrics, intensities, and chromaticities are all per industry and regulatory standard, ensuring safe and consistent environments for aviators.less
