The +ECO Clima Control is equipped with a built-in solar panel and monitors temperature and humidity in up to four locations.

TUALATIN, OR /PRNewswire/ -- Oregon Scientific announced the release of the +ECO Clima Control weather station, the first in its innovative new line of energy-conserving electronics. The +ECO product, operating with solar energy, offers essential timing and weather features while helping to reduce energy consumption and improve battery life.

The +ECO Clima Control is equipped with a built-in solar panel, and is powered by the sun. It allows its users to monitor the current temperature and humidity in up to four locations within the home and outdoors, using remote wireless temperature and humidity sensors. With only an 8-hr. charge, the +ECO Clima Control will operate for up to three months before another charge is needed.

"We are excited to introduce our first solar-powered weather station into our ever-growing line of Oregon Scientific household products," said Mike Prager, President of Oregon Scientific, U.S. "We are committed to exploring alternative sources of energy to power our products and will continue to look for new innovations to serve our consumers."

In September, two additional solar-powered installments will be added to the +ECO line. The first, the +ECO Solar Weather Station will monitor current indoor and outdoor weather temperatures and humidity and show an iconic future weather forecast, as well as the precise Atomic time. Second, the more compact +ECO Solar Weather Clock will monitor the current indoor and outdoor weather temperatures and humidity, as well provide the Atomic time. Both products are equipped with detachable solar panels and remote wireless temperature and humidity sensors.

The +ECO Clima Control has a suggested retail price of $119.99. All +ECO line products will be available for purchase on the company's Web site.
