A company by the name of Geosis Corporation is planning to unveil shortly a new solar light converter which could go a long way towards powering commercial and residential lamp posts with solar power. It is called the Yosemite Series Solar Light and it is part of the company’s Sunmia brand of solar lighting products.
The Sunmia Yosemite Series Solar Light is designed to mount atop any lamp post with a 3-inch diameter. The mounted solar panel can be angled in several different ways to capture as much solar energy as possible. The fixture comes with what seems to be its own light box design and also includes a 3-watt LED bulb that can be swapped out once it burns out. An integrated Li-ion phosphate battery, which powers the light at night, can be recharged in four to six hours of sunlight. A hybrid option is available as well that would allow for AC power to drive the lighting unit during a long period of cloudy days.
“The Yosemite series is designed to provide users an easy alternative to becoming green,” said Ms. Nadarajan, Director of Marketing at Geosis Corporation, in a statement. “With the new Sunmia product, old commercial and residential lights can be converted into solar lights without incurring additional installation costs while reducing energy the way it was intended.”
