The solar energy systems and LED lighting solutions firm Urban Solar has begun supplying solar-powered LED lighting for use at bus stops in San Francisco, California, as part of an agreement with the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency and Clear Channel Outdoor, according to a recent press release.

 

The first 500 deployments of Urban Solar’s PV-Lantern — of an estimated 3,300 planned bus stop upgrades — have begun taking place, according to the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) press release. Given that the Urban Solar PV-Lantern is essentially a stand-alone solar-powered LED bus stop light, it cuts down on materials used and expenses — mostly owing to the forgoing of the need “for disruptive and expensive trenching of utility poles to each bus stop.”

“We are very pleased that SFMTA and Clear Channel Outdoor chose us for this green initiative,” stated Urban Solar President Jeff Peters, as quoted in the press release. “SFMTA and the City of San Francisco are great partners and an excellent location to showcase our technology. San Francisco’s west coast weather can be challenging for solar systems in an urban setting. Our powerful controller and experienced design ensure it will have lit bus stops year round.”

It’s worth noting here that Urban Solar has actually been working closely with SFMTA since back in 2009 on solar-powered LED bus stop lighting.
