From Australia to Asia to America, one controversial factor remains constant with respect to mine sites around the world: safety. In an environment where heavy equipment, explosives, chemicals and industrial hazards are encountered daily, worker safety can be compromised. Effective illumination and marking of hazards and obstructions can help minimize injuries and fatalities among those who work in these areas. This is where solar technology can make its mark.

As one of the most rapidly advancing renewable energy resources in the world, solar LED technology has gained attention for its reliability and flexibility in application. Operating free of the electrical grid and requiring little maintenance, solar LED technology can present mines with an attractive alternative for enhancing safety and meeting sustainability goals.
