Caterpillar engineers compared the cost of installing solar panels... and decided there was more value in installing high-efficiency and lower cost Suntrackers
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 08, 2011
Ciralight Global (OTC:DB:CGHA), developer and manufacturer of the patented energy saving Ciralight SunTracker, and the only global provider of solar powered daylighting products capable of turning off electric interior lights for up to 10 hours a day, reported today that its European Division, Ciralight Europe, has concluded a deal to install its solar powered Ciralight SunTracker daylighting system at the headquarters of Caterpillar Europe, in Grimbergen, Belgium with installation set for the first week of January, 2012.
“Caterpillar EMEA, Grimbergen, is one of the leading companies in Europe with over 89 branches,” said Alain Dujardin, Business Manager International EPS - Ciralight Europe. “Although the Company has made hundreds of installations around the world, the sale to Caterpillar is being seen in Europe as a pilot project and we expect that Suntracker will become the standard in all future Caterpillar construction projects and will be specified for retrofit in existing buildings. “
“Caterpillar engineers compared the cost of installing solar panels to the ROI of Ciralight Suntrackers as presented by Ciralight,” continued Dujardin, “and decided there was more value in installing high efficiency and lower cost Suntrackers, which use solar powered GPS technology and mirrors to track the sun throughout the day to illuminate building interiors with abundant natural daylight. Others members of the EMEA are observing and are interested in this installation and the results, which will be obvious soon thereafter”
Jeff Brain, Ciralight’s President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, We are very excited by the agreement with Caterpillar Europe. It’s growing confirmation that “Ciralight’s Suntrackers™, with their ability to bring natural light into buildings, are the future for “Green” lighting of factories, schools, commercial buildings, public facilities and retail stores, allowing people to enjoy the benefits of natural daylight and its subsequent energy savings.”
