United States : Urban Green Energy Expands its Lead in Distributed Energy by Announcing Off-Grid Outdoor Lighting Solutions.

The launch of an advanced line of renewable energy lighting solutions capable of operating completely off the grid is today announced by Urban Green Energy (UGE). Allowing them to be used in a wider number of applications at a lower price, the versatile new products build upon UGE s existing line of lighting solutions. The stand-alone towers will lower costs by avoiding costly wiring and installation expenses while avoiding future electricity costs for powering the lights, in addition to minimizing the carbon impact of outdoor lighting.

Either UGE s low-cost HoYi! turbine, solar panels, or a combination of both is used by cutting-edge systems o achieve the power needed to completely power the LED light. UGE has the ability to assess sites remotely, and provide guidance for what hybrid renewable energy system should be utilized at each location to maximize efficiency and optimize the system. The reliability of the streetlights is increased by eliminating reliance on the local grid, by operating as stand-alone units.

Innovation in both electronics and wind technology has allowed for the costs of UGE s outdoor lighting solutions to be nearly halved. The simplicity and savings of installing a standalone lighting system for a road, parking lot, or pedestrian pathway cannot be overstated, said Mateo Chaskel, VP of Operations at UGE. Our new line of renewable lighting solutions will make it feasible for customers in developed and developing regions to use them in a variety of locations. The new line of stand-alone lights will allow customers to save over 35% when compared to conventional lighting.

The new line of lights will maintain the trademark UGE aesthetic, in addition to the technological advances, while allowing for all components to be safely stored in an enclosure within the base of the tower. The installation of over 100 units near Beijing, China, and additional projects is launched with new line and are now being developed in several countries across the US, Asia, the Caribbean, and Africa.
