DARIEN, Conn., June 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Soluxe Solar, a Connecticut-based solar company, has announced its first "Solar Flare" – a weekly honor the company has decided to bestow on an individual or company making great strides in the world of solar advancement.
"Solar technology and solar awareness is progressing these days at a tremendous pace," says Soluxe Solar CEO Jeffrey Mayer. "The advancements and heightened awareness for the possibilities of solar is astonishing. Soluxe Solar wants to help bring attention to some of the amazing achievements and champions for the solar cause which is why we created our Solar Flare award."
The first Solar Flare is being awarded to the U.S. Navy for the development of a new class of underwater solar panels with the capability to power submerged electronics and sensor systems. The new panels are optimized to produce a large amount of solar power at depths up to nine meters. The new panels will not only provide benefits to the navy but the new technology will also benefit ocean floor researchers, allowing them to spend longer time periods under water while using less energy.
"Not only does this development demonstrate the U.S. Navy's recognition of the potential for solar in a previously unheard of capacity," says Mayer. "But it also provides a benefit beyond just its primary use and can help scientists and ocean researchers with their own research and discoveries in other fields."
The solar company will announce its weekly "Solar Flare" honoree on the company's facebook page and website, www.soluxesolar.com.
