Sun Metro installs solar lighting at bus shelters

Posted on April 2, 2012

El Paso, Texas-based Sun Metro installed a new solar lighting system at its bus stops.

The solar lighting system was created to provide illumination to poorly lit bus stops in the El Paso area. Thirteen solar lighting units have been installed across the city.

The solar units will provide illumination in areas with little to no lighting as well as offer a better sense of security, improved visibility and aid in the prevention of a bus passing up riders.

Each solar lighting unit contains solar powered LED lights that are clear white in color. The lighting component will provide consistent lighting for up to 12 hours and will illuminate the waiting area using a power of six Lumens.
