Urban Solar Receives UL certification

The PV-Shelter series systems are specifically designed for bus shelter lighting applications.

UL is a global independent safety company with more than a century of expertise dedicated to promoting safe living and working environments. UL helps safeguard people, products and places, facilitating trade and providing peace of mind.

Illumination is a known deterrent against crime. Solar powered LED bus stop lighting helps to improve ridership by increasing the sense of safety and overall transit experience. Solar powered solutions also eliminate the requirement for trenching power lines to transit stop locations, thus reducing the transit authority’s overall carbon footprint. Incorporating Urban Solar’s PV-Shelter and PV-Stop products further enhance public perception of transit as a safe, economical and environmentally friendly transportation choice.
