MINEOLA, N.Y., Sept. 7, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Clear Skies Solar, Inc. (CSS) (OTCBB:CSKH), a full-service national renewable energy provider, has today announced the award to their majority owned subsidiary, Carbon 612, U.S. Patent number US 7,990,133 for "Non-Intrusive Electric A/C sensor" or the "Clear Coil".

Carbon 612 developed the "Clear Coil" Sensor while designing their patented wireless XTRAX® monitoring device. With other devices currently on the market, installation times usually take hours requiring hard wiring and electrical service interruptions at a high cost. Our Clear Coil reduces the cost and shortens the task to minutes while providing a higher degree of accuracy making it invaluable for monetization.

Electrical sensors have many uses in residential, commercial and industrial applications. They range from electrical billing, measuring consumption or production of electricity to smart-home applications but have always been cumbersome and time consuming to install, hence making it cost prohibitive in many applications. Clear Coil has a higher level of accuracy while providing a low cost solution.

Carbon 612's "Clear Coil" sensor is a re-usable, non-intrusive, lightweight, compact and flexible device that will reduce the cost of hardware installation time by a factor of 4 or better. Most sensors become inaccurate as the power level goes up but Clear Coil stays linear (maintains accuracy) eliminating errors or value estimating under higher power conditions.

The Clear Coil will be made available to all industries where electrical sensing is required.  

The XTRAX® monitoring device was specifically designed to reliably and accurately calculate the energy production of renewable electrical energy systems while maintaining a very low cost profile. XTRAX® in most cases can be installed in under 15 minutes and is the lowest cost solution that we are aware of in the market today. With the Clear-Coil, we feel this will put Carbon 612's XTRAX® even further ahead of the pack in cost and reliability.
