SAN BRUNO, CA and HOLLAND, MI--(Marketwire - Aug 27, 2012) - Eoplly USA Inc., a designer and manufacturer of solar products, and Solar Street Lights USA Inc., a US manufacturer of solar street lights and storage systems, today announced the completion of approximately fifty early notification and emergency warning systems for the City of Detroit, Michigan.
The early warning and emergency notification systems were funded through a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) grant to upgrade warning systems across several major US cities. The systems were awarded to West Shores Services Inc. who selected Solar Street Lights USA Inc. to design and assemble the power management systems using Eoplly solar modules.
The emergency warning systems incorporate a federal emergency siren, power management and battery storage, and two Eoplly EP-156P/60-235W poly-silicon modules. These systems were designed to operate off-grid at 48Vdc, in case of a loss in power during emergency situations, such as national disasters.
"Eoplly USA is proud to be powering these emergency warning systems for the City of Detroit. Solar power is a good fit for off-grid, emergency warning and lighting systems," said Warren Nishikawa, CEO and General Manager of Eoplly USA Inc. "We are pleased to partner with Solar Street Lights USA on this municipal project. We view off-grid solar systems as an emerging market."
Solar Street Lights USA Chief Technology Officer Craig Brumels commented, "Eoplly solar modules were the best choice for this project given the high module efficiency, robust frame and warranty."
