Railroads are a reliable method for transportation in harsh weather conditions. It is important to ensure that pedestrians are able to stand in well-lit terminals and shelters, even on the snowiest night or stormiest evening. As a reliable light source that is built to work 365 days each year, wherever necessary, as long as necessary, solar LED panels and fixtures are the perfect choice to place under train, bus and other pedestrian transit shelters. One does not have to worry about the electricity failing with Solar technology. Because solar panels stores light during the day and works in cloudy weather, solar lighting is the perfect emergency backup!
As mentioned above, railway engineers have been looking to power air conditioning, heating and light within train cars through Solar technology using panels mounted to the roof of the train. This technology is relatively new, which promises growth in the solar market sector. Read more to learn about the future of Solar in transit in our previous blog post.
BESIDE THE TRACKS
When railroad tracks are built in remote areas, Solar Lighting is an easy choice. Installing solar lighting is worry and hassle free, and costs much less than what one pays to wire, trench and dig electric. The eSHINE fixtures mount to aesthetically sleek ePOLEs that are direct burial mounted with batteries in house.
Where there are trains and busses, there are often large parking lots for people to leave and store their cars. Ember LEDs eSHINE Street and eSHINE Area systems are the perfect lighting options for new parking lots at train stops.
