OmniTrans chose Urban Solar’s PV Stop to increase safety for riders, further enhancing its bus stop amenities. The PV Stop is a UL-Listed solar-powered system with high intensity LED lighting.
One hundred of Urban Solar’s PV Stops were successfully installed here in 2012, and this award will add to the transportation authority’s current lighting units installed at bus stops along major transit corridors.
“We at Urban Solar have enjoyed working with OmniTrans in the past and are thrilled to continue our relationship with the agency to provide reliable solar powered safety and security lighting for the riders of OmniTrans,” says Ben Guriel, Senior Business Development Manager at Urban Solar.
