Sustainable Greenway Project Gives Historical Corridor New Life

Urban Solar is proud to have been awarded this multi-year project in the City of Vancouver to create a solution using Solar LED Lighting (SLL) series units placed at intervals along a 900 metre stretch of the Arbutus Greenway. The completely off-grid system required no trenching or utility hookup and the only costs associated with the units moving forward will be maintenance.

The Arbutus Greenway project lighting system will enhance the City’s urban landscape and contribute to a vibrant and accessible public space for walking and cycling.

“Sustainability is a core value at Urban Solar. Public projects like the City of Vancouver’s Arbutus Greenway are why we got into this industry to start with” – Jeff Peters, Urban Solar Founder

“Initial costs to supply and install these lights are lower compared to conventional systems. We will do more of these installations as pathway lighting needs arise.”
