The Coast Guard placed a $600,000 order for hundreds of solar-LED marine lanterns from Canadian-based Carmanah Technologies.

Replacing older incandescent lanterns, the new 701-5 and 704-5 lanterns will be deployed as aids to navigation across 19 regions, including New Orleans; Galveston and Corpus Christi, Texas; and Mobile, Ala. A portion also will be stored at strategic locations for emergency response.

"While providing reliable day-to-day service as bright and effective aids to navigation, this shipment of solar LED lanterns also offers a stand-alone lighting alternative that can be deployed wherever they're needed at a moment's notice," said Mat Regier, Carmanah sales channel manager for the Southeast, in a statement.

Carmanah solar-powered lanterns are in use around the world, both as permanent aids to navigation and for emergency preparedness and disaster-response applications.
