Solar Lighting Initiative
In addition to saving energy and eliminating greenhouse gases sometimes solar power can provide solutions where utility infrastructure is not readily available. A solar powered bus shelter lighting system was installed on the shelter located at the SAC. This option permitted us to install lighting quickly and without the added expense of actually breaking ground and connecting to the nearest source of electricity. The unit operates completely off grid and can even operate for approximately 5 days without being recharged. Similarly, there are some solar powered speed indicator signs around the Campus that were installed, saving the expense of a utility connection.
