Teenagers in Wyre Forest, UK, have something new to talk about. The Wyre Forest District Council has selected Carmanah’s leading-edge solar lighting technology to illuminate its youth shelter, a popular teenage hang-out spot.

Recognizing the need to provide a safe, illuminated environment, the council decided to install Carmanah’s solar lighting system in an existing shelter as a cost-effective and environmentally friendly solution.

Carmanah’s solar lighting has been used by governments worldwide to illuminated off-grid amenities. The technology is fully integrated and can be installed with very little technical expertise. It has also been field-proven to provide year-round reliability, even under challenging conditions, and requires no scheduled maintenance for up to five years.

With the growing popularity of solar power as a clean energy source in the battle against climate change, the youth of the Wyre Forest can be proud of the fact that their shelter is not only safer, but also a practical example of sustainable power in action.

With more than 250,000 installations worldwide, Carmanah is a leader in solar lighting. For more information, visit or contact:
