Carmanah Solar LED Lights Illuminate Three Miles of Environmentally-Sensitive Pathway for Lummi Nation
Dec 3, 2010 Carmanah Technologies Corporation is providing 70 EverGEN 1710 solar LED lighting systems to illuminate Haxton Way Trail for the Lummi Nation Indian Reservation, Lummi Nation, Washington. The EverGEN solar lighting systems are being deployed to improve the safety of pedestrians that use the popular three-mile long pathway, which stretches across environmentally-sensitive wetlands.
Working with Carmanah and local lighting agent, Illuminating Resource LLC., the Lummi Nation based the decision to use the EverGEN solar lighting systems on the need to increase trail security and usefulness after dark, while preserving the integrity of the natural environment. The Haxton Way Trail follows a network of protected wetlands and wetland complexes, which account for almost half of the Lummi Reservation’s total upland area. The EverGEN solar lighting systems are installed without the need to dig or trench power to each system. Establishing underground wiring in a traditional lighting scenario would have posed a potential threat to the delicate wetlands. In addition to acknowledging these ground sensitivities, the new EverGEN systems will operate in accordance with International Dark Sky Association (IDA) Guidelines, which recommend limiting light trespass or ‘sky glow’ to help protect nocturnal ecosystems and nocturnal wildlife.
The EverGEN systems are also incorporating Advanced Occupancy Sensing technology. Advanced Occupancy Sensing will activate the lights on Haxton Way Trail in a synchronized manner to provide illumination where needed when any one light senses motion.
