Jameco Catalog Features Solar-Power Hotel

BELMONT, CA--(Marketwire - September 8, 2010) -  Jameco Electronics published its fall electronic components catalog this month with a cover photo featuring the new Solar Valley Micro-Emission Hotel. Located in Dezhou City, China, the hotel is host to the 4th International Solar Cities Congress taking place September 16th through 19th. The hotel generates 70% of its energy requirements from the solar panels that cover its façade. Located in the heart of China's Sun Valley, the hope is that it will attract clean energy companies to create a Chinese version of California's Silicon Valley.

"Jameco has seen a huge spike in electronics design work that focuses on reducing energy consumption," said James Farrey, CEO of Jameco Electronics. "We love to feature design excellence on our catalog covers and this is certainly a remarkable building."

Jameco's September catalog features over 11,000 of the industry's most popular electronic components in its 205 page, full-color catalog. New products in this catalog include the increasingly popular Arduino microcontrollers, as well as the Ardweeny kit. Jameco's unique organization makes it easy to compare products and pricing from multiple manufacturers. The catalog is available for free by calling 800-831-4242 or by visiting
