Carmanah R829 Solar LED School Zone Flashing Beacons
Eighteen beacons, including two signal intersections, installed in school zones throughout the Northern California Valley
City in Northern California
JAM Services Inc.;
Challenge and Solution:
A Northern California City of approximately 100,000 sought to increase traffic safety in school zones with eighteen solar LED flashing beacons programmed for identical school calendar schedules. Grid-power was inaccessible or unavailable in many of the proposed locations. Significant cost savings were achieved by eliminating the need for specialized work crews, wiring, and lengthy installation periods. Less the time to travel to each beacon location, installation of the solar beacons was completed within seven days. Solar LED beacons were eligible under the Safe Routes to School Grant, and while other solar providers existed, the City had purchased Carmanah beacons in the past and was happy with their performance and value.
