Toronto, Canada, December 09, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Solamon Energy Corp. is proud to announce plans to support future international disaster relief efforts by supplying mobile solar arrays into remote areas accessible by water. The turnkey system can be mounted either on floating barges or affixed to a local structure. “It is a temporary solution that we envision will enable people to quickly generate substantial power following a devastating earthquake or tsunami,” says Jay Yeo, Solamon President. “Solar arrays are modular and versatile, and in recent discussions with several government officials, we were asked if it were possible to supply such a system and the answer is: Yes.”
Recognized agencies who provide disaster relief efforts are being contacted by Solamon staff and introduced to the new mobile Apollo Acre™ concept. All the required component parts will be assembled and tested and placed into a single shipping container to be delivered expeditiously when needed. Portable solar arrays are increasingly being mounted onto street lights and also installed co-jointly where there is no electricity currently available locally, whether for a corporate cell site or community water pump.
Solamon provides its partners a fully managed solution called the Apollo Acre™, a turnkey process from beginning to end including site inspections, project design and development, as well as addressing requisite environmental and local permitting, 3rd party engineering, procurement and construction, as well as system testing and eventual commissioning, security and maintenance.
In the Caribbean, Solamon offers a ground-mounted solar array of integrated photovoltaic cells typically over a 5-acre package of land to produce 2MW of power each. The company also designs and installs custom solutions with local partners to provide roof-mounted and parking lot systems that could be augmented by micro wind turbine technology. In Central America, Solamon is developing 50-acre packages of land to supply 20MW of solar electricity, minimally, to the grid.
About Solamon: Solamon Energy Corp. sells integrated arrays of ground-mounted and rooftop photovoltaic cells. These solar power plants are connected by cable to varied transmission equipment, including converters, inverters and batteries, utilizing 5 acres of land per unit; each unit is called an Apollo Acre™. Additionally, it is expected the company’s business activities will spin-off many jobs locally, given engineering requirements, construction, unit commissioning and subsequent maintenance.
