NEC Display Solutions of America today announced a solar-powered system for use with all its monitors.
The solar-powered system is designed to produce approximately 293 kilowatt hours of electricity per year, or 800 watts per day. By running a display monitor off solar power, the need for standard electricity, which is produced by means of non-renewable energy sources, will be significantly reduced and, in some cases, nearly eliminated. Large companies could realize substantial energy savings from the solar-powered battery packages and could potentially save thousands of dollars each year in electricity costs, while also reducing harmful pollutants, which are produced when using non-renewable generated electricity.
Saved solar energy can last for days of normal usage when running a typical LCD monitor. Multiple monitors can be run simultaneously; however, the run time of a battery would vary depending on usage and the number of devices drawing on the power.
The full solar-power package includes the following:
- 2 x EV-120 - Evergreen 120 Watt Solar Panel
- 3 x EX-1000 - Extreme 12V, Deep Cycle Solar Battery - 100 AHr
- 1 x GPR-25 - Go Power! 25 Amp Digital Charge Controller
- 1 x GP-SW150-12 - Go Power! Pure Sine Wave 150 Watt Inverter 12 Volt
- 1 x GPSC-12-10A - Go Power! 10 Amp Smart Battery Charger
- 1 x Battery/Solar Wire & Misc.
All NEC LCD displays are RoHS (Restriction on Hazardous Substances) compliant, containing fully disposable plastics and minimal amounts of hazardous materials, such as lead, hex-chrome, cadmium, mercury, PBDE and PBB. Orders for the entire solar-powered battery package are available for immediate delivery.
