Solar Cynergy Solar LEDs in City of Irvine’s Great Balloon Park!

July 9, 2008

With the grand opening of the city of Irvine’s Great Balloon park taking place this upcoming July 12th, we wanted to invite everyone to partake in the Festival of Flight and experience free hot air balloon rides amongst other fun activities for the entire family.

The Great Park Balloon is the first major attraction of the Orange County Great Park, a 1,347 acre public space on the site of the former El Toro Marine Corps Air Station in Orange County, California.

Passengers will soar between 250-400 feet above the surrounding landscape, enjoying a bird’s eye view of the retired air station’s transformation into the first great metropolitan park of the 21st Century.

Solar Cynergy has been working with the Balloon Park designers to go green and integrate commercial grade solar LED technology as landscape hazard and accent lighting. The Balloon Park will be using Solar Cynergy CSL 6009 solar LED fixtures in the surrounding areas as these models are completely self contained (with no additional wiring) and completely solar powered.

We are extremely excited to be working on such a great and sustainable minded project and look forward to seeing you all of you this weekend. For more information, please visit and

Solar Cynergy – Embedded Solar LED Lighting

Posted by: mpg in Lighting, Environment, Educational solar-cynergy.jpg

Planning a landscape project? How about solar lighting? Well, these are not your typical lighting you buy from your local hardware store. These are designed to be embedded into the pavement. The folks at Solar Cynergy have introduced a LED lighting product for residential use. The lights can be set into stonework, gravel, or even soil to provide accents or create a safe walk or driveway. It comes in circle, square or rectangle shape and colors (red, blue, white).

Solar Cynergy, for zero-energy outdoor lighting
By Chris Morrison 09.19.07

Makers of outdoor light-emitting diode (LED) technology usually aim at replacing public street lights, which sap large amounts of energy over time. A company called Solar Cynergy has instead chosen to focus on the residential outdoor decorative lighting market.

LEDs consume less power than incandescent bulbs, the standard lighting used everywhere. LEDs are a developing technology that may one day beat fluorescents for energy efficiency, and also have an extremely long life-span. Their low power requirements mean they can be combined with a small solar cell and capacitor to drop off the power grid entirely.

Solar Cynergy’s initial outdoor product is a “brick” that is installed in the ground and covered by a polycarbon shield strong enough to drive a truck over. During the day, the solar cell inside soaks up sunlight, storing the energy in its capacitor. At night, the light comes on automatically. A single day of weak sunlight is enough to power the LED for several days, according to the company, and the lights can last as long as 25 years.

Competitor Hotbeam sells a nearly identical product, although the “SolarBrick” has a more visible solar panel. Solar Cynergy has also begun making lights designed for cities, such as cross-walks illuminators.

solarcynergy1.jpgSolar Cynergy has started out targeting the high-end residential market, to cover its high component costs: A pack of six round lights costs about $799 wholesale. John Huang, an associate of the company, blames manufacturing costs and a 20-40 percent markup that will be reduced over time.

But with the price of both LEDs and solar paneling coming down by at least 10 percent each year, and production ramping up, it won’t be long until the lights are within reach for ordinary homeowners. Solar Cynergy currently sells only through a handful of distributors, who resell to construction companies and contractors across the country, but recently signed a contract to sell through SmartHome, an online retailer.

Prashant Shewa, CEO of the company’s Japanese parent Shewas Inc., claims that Solar Cynergy is run by only six employees and already takes in about $7 million annually. Its early success is an indicator of the expanding market for energy-conscious products in every aspect of consumer’s lives.

  1. Outdoor Lights Gone Stellar
    solar lightsOutdoor lights make decks, driveways, and stairs safer and more festive. Now they can also be environmentally friendly with solar lights, found on Unlike your average decorative lights, solar lights are charged by the sun during the day and can last up to twenty-five years without batteries. They’re made to fit right into your landscape surface and are strong enough to withstand the impact from a small truck.
  2. Recycled Bath Water
    garden angelPerpetual Water banned lawn watering then decided to take another, proactive approach. The company created devices, like GardenAngel, that clean and filter water from washing machines, showers, and sinks before sending it to the sprinkler system.
  3. Forest-Free Floors
    Using wood products does not have to mean destroying ancient rainforests. Hardwood flooring products by EcoTimber come from well-managed forests, fast-growing bamboo, or reclaimed flooring.
  4. Wood Floors – Without the Wood
    An alternative to using wood from well-managed forests is using engineered lumber, provided by Alternative Building Services. Made from laminated veneer lumber, laminated strand lumber, and medium density fiberboard, engineered lumber is stronger than its sawn counterpart.
  5. Nature-Inspired Paint
    The 40 YOLO ColorHouse paint colors are inspired by nature’s palette. It is environmentally responsible paint made with zero volatile organic compounds.
  6. Sun in a Tube
    Unlike a skylight or sun-charged solar light, Solatube lights capture and redirect sunlight using reflective surfaces. A diffuser installed at ceiling-level will spread light evenly throughout the room.
  7. Countertops: The Newest in Recycled Paper
    These countertops made by Paperstone are made from 50 to 100% recycled paper, do not use petroleum-based phenols, and are formaldehyde free.
