Carmanah’s solar-powered i-STOP® technology is finding new uses in a marine environment. Initially designed to illuminate dark bus stops and help waiting passengers signal oncoming buses, the i-STOP will soon be providing a similar service for ferry passengers.

The i-STOP solar-powered transit stop provides a flashing signal light, security lighting, and schedule illumination in a durable, attractive, stand-alone device. Ideal for areas where grid-based power is unavailable or just too costly to access, the i-STOP transit stop requires no electrical hook up – gathering all its power from the free, renewable energy of the sun.

Purchased by a harbor-side ferry company in British Columbia, Canada, the i-STOP will help ferry captains spot passengers awaiting the small harbor shuttles at night, while illuminating the area, and clearly displaying schedule information.

With more than 250,000 installations, Carmanah is a world leader in renewable and energy-efficient technology solutions.
