Urban Solar introduces Bright-Up PV Stop

Urban Solar, a leading manufacturer of solar powered light emitting diode (LED) lighting solutions, is pleased to introduce their latest offering in the PV Stop series, the “Bright-Up”. The PV Stop is an autonomous, stand-alone solar powered LED lighting system designed for pole mounted transit bus stops. Acting as a beacon or bus stop indicator, the Bright-Up delivers dusk to dawn illumination of the stop while still offering the PV Stop on-demand security lighting.

  • Dusk to Dawn Illumination to mark the Bus Stop
  • Enhanced On-Demand LED Security Lighting
  • Enhanced Bus Stop Visibility for Riders and Operators
  • Increased Agency Branding through Colors and Decals
  • Reduced Pass-Bys

“We are excited to add the Bright-Up option to our PV Stop series. The PV Stop Bright-Up provides transit agencies; on demand security lighting along with bus stop and transit agency brand recognition – from dusk to dawn. Along with the ADA compliant push button option, agencies will benefit from the Bright-Up’s small footprint, branding options and added bus stop security.” states Jeff Peters, Urban Solar President.

The PV Stop Bright-Up solution is low maintenance, with LEDs delivering ten times the operating life of a conventional fluorescent fixture. Driven by Urban Solar’s energy efficient Energy Control Module (ECM) the PV Stop Bright Up delivers security lighting at bus stops for riders while branding the bus stop and ultimately increasing ridership for the agency. Incorporating the PV Stop further enhances public perception of transit as an economical and environmentally friendly transportation choice.

Urban Solar uses an Energy Control Module (ECM) for an efficient system operation and control. Designed specifically for solar powered LED transit applications, the ECM is fully automatic and uses an algorithm designed to deliver the maximum level of illumination and reliability. Coupled with powerful LEDs, specially engineered lenses further enhance the illumination output resulting in a powerful bus stop amenity. Bus stop illumination is a strong deterrent against crime at transit stops. Solar powered LED bus stop and bus shelter lighting helps to increase safety which in turn improves ridership and the overall transit experience.
