Tenured transit expert Dick Ruddell joins Urban Solar

Urban Solar is pleased to announce Dick Ruddell has joined its team of experts as the new Vice President of Business Development to help lead its transit division. Urban Solar specializes in transit passenger amenities, with a focus on transit stop and bus shelter solar lighting solutions.

The commercial solar lighting company is growing its transit division to keep up with increasing demand. Ruddell’s wealth of experience in the transit industry will further set Urban Solar apart from any other transit solar lighting company on the market.

Ruddell’s experience includes a decade as the President and Executive Director of the Fort Worth Transportation Authority (The T), where he not only expanded its bus service, but he led a team with the development of TEX Rail.

”Dick Ruddell’s public transportation experience is extensive,” says Urban Solar President Jeff Peters. “Dick danced with the idea of retirement but his passion for our company and solar transit initiatives far outweighed those thoughts. We are thrilled to have him join our team.”

“Joining the Urban Solar team was an easy decision for me. They are the leader for efficient solar lighting systems and renewable technology with their innovative commercial solar powered lighting solutions,” says Dick Ruddell.

Urban Solar has a number of quality solar LED products for the transportation industry including photovoltaic bus shelter lighting systems (PV Shelter), and photovoltaic stop light systems (PV Stop).
