Carmanah’s solar power technology is making its way north. With an installation of solar engines and solar-powered bus stop lighting, a town in northern British Columbia, Canada is making use of sustainable technology to create a safer and more accessible community for its citizens.

Carmanah’s solar engines will power lighting near bridges on the city’s walking trail, while bus stop lighting will illuminate public transit stops throughout the city. Both installations are part of a strategic move by the city to improve infrastructure while implementing renewable alternative energy solutions.

Carmanah’s solar power technology was the ideal choice for these applications, because it installs easily, requires no connection to the electrical grid, and requires no scheduled maintenance for up to five years. By choosing solar powered illumination technology, the city can realize significant installation, maintenance and operational cost savings, while improving infrastructure with a clean, renewable energy choice.

Incorporating the company’s MICROSOURCE® technology, Carmanah’s solar powered products automatically adjust to the limited sunlight hours of northern winters. An intelligent onboard energy management system, MICROSOURCE technology allows Carmanah’s solar-powered products to adjust light output and battery charge levels based on the surrounding environment. This intelligent technology ensures consistent light output, and distinguishes Carmanah’s solar-powered solutions from other lighting alternatives.
