Igendesign’s Flow light harvests wind power for sustainable lighting

Solar Powered Lights

Eco Factor: Lighting concept powered by the wind.

The Flow is a concept lighting solution for far-flung places, especially sea shores where sourcing grid electricity is not that easy. Designers over at Igendesign have come up with a sustainable solution in the form of a biodegradable light that harvests wind energy for illumination.

The central column telescopes out in three stages to take advantage of the wind and the feet and wire guys keep it nice and steady. The base of the central column stores the wires and the batteries and although it’s made of lightweight materials like carbon fiber and aluminum, it will take two or three people to move and set up.

Pave Guard:
Getting rid of snow and ice forever…
using the power of the sun.

Pave Guard Technologies,® Inc. has combined subsurface heating with solar energy to present a system that will eliminate snow and ice from forming on pavement while serving as an alternative energy source. The Pave Guard System is also designed to pay for itself over a period of 5-7 years while putting money back in your pocket for another 13 years or more.

Solar panels silently convert light into electricity. They have no moving parts, require little maintenance and are designed to last for many years. Photovoltaic solar panels work best in direct sunlight, but they also work well even on cloudy days.

Solar panels can be used to supply a substantial proportion of the electrical needs of typical households. They can be mounted on the roof or on the ground and connected to the local electric utility or stand alone (not connected to the utility), either supplying all the power directly to the home or pumping the excess back to the utility. Apart from reducing your electricity bill, home owners can often sell any surplus electricity directly back to the utility at an attractive rate.

Solar Powered Security Light

solar light

Is the entrance or area around your home dark or badly lit? Do you struggle to find your keys in the evening? Perhaps you would feel safer when you come home late at night or when you go to the garage or take the rubbish out if you had a security light to lead the way? Or maybe you have an external garage that isn’t wired up to electricity but you have always wanted an external light?

Whether it’s a welcoming light for guests, a security light for you or a practical light to lead the way and help you find your keys, our Solar Sensor Light delivers a fantastic solution. The Solar Sensor Light turns on automatically when motion is detected and off after 1 minute. And the best bit? Its battery is powered solely by sunlight, so no wires are required, making it ideal for emergency use as you can rely on this practical chap all year round.

Simple to Install

Securely bolt your solar-powered motion Sensor Light above your garage, porch or next to the front door with ease. Simply screw the bracket to the wall, slide the light onto the bracket and then lock in place with the supplied key.

This fantastic design means you can remove your solar light for cleaning, or if your chosen location is in the shade, you can unlock the light and place in direct sunlight once a week to recharge and then lock back in place.

The infrared sensor has a 100 degree detection angle, an 8 metre lighting distance and a 60 second illumination period. And when fully charged emits a super bright LED light, which has almost the same power as that of a 60W standard light bulb! Order yours today!

Mobile MaxPure with Fresh Water Purification System

max pure silo

This Mobile MaxPure® (MMP) is a solar-powered generator with a built-in system for the purification of polluted freshwater sources. This system can pump and purify an average of 30,000 gallons each day at a cost of less than one penny per gallon! This calculation includes capital costs and all consumables over the course of the first year. After year 1 the cost reduces to fractions of a penny per gallon because the capital outlay has been paid off.

The unit also provides power to run lights, tools, equipment and sensitive computers and other electronic equipment. Inverter systems for use with US or European specifications are available. You can also purchase the optional satellite communication system and/or the specially designed trailer to easily pull the unit to your site.

The MMP fits easily into standard international shipping containers; 4 fit into a standard 40-foot container. There are lift points built on to the sturdy frame to airlift the unit by helicopter. It can also be transported by truck or boat.

The units have provided water and power under severe conditions. Please see our Project Briefs for more information. The MMP is powder coated to reduce rust and all components are marine grade and sealed against the elements. Please see below for more specifications.

SolarRolls Solar Powered Charger

SolarRoll laptop

Our drive and desire to pioneer a line of rugged power sources led to the introduction of the first flexible solar panel, the SolarRoll. Since then, the evolution of this concept has flourished. Backed by glowing reviews in every major magazine and newspaper in this country and others, the SolarRoll has officially taken its place as one of our most talked about products. The proof, though, is in the remarkable performance. The waterproof SolarRoll has given sea kayakers the power to photograph their voyages from the far reaches of the planet. And next spring, it will assist Ed Viesturs in his final summit, Annapurna, as he polishes off the last peak of Endeavor 8000. Ideal for powering satellite phones, members of expeditions worldwide pack the SolarRoll in place of expensive extra batteries that don?t offer much relief in the form of weight. We realize however, that not everyone is defying the ordinary. Some of us simply need the SolarRoll for charging our car battery or running our video camera. With this in mind, we?re offering alternative sizes and outputs this year to accommodate the growing demand for our most popular solar panel.
