Urban Solar wins RFP to supply bus stop lighting systems for Orange County

Urban Solar is pleased to announce it has been awarded a three-year contract to supply its PV Stop lighting systems to the Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) after successfully winning a competitive solicitation.

OCTA chose Urban Solar’s PV Stop to increase safety for riders, further enhancing its bus stop amenities.  The PV Stop is a UL Listed solar powered system with high intensity LED lighting.

More than 100 of Urban Solar’s PV Stops were successfully installed in 2012, and this award will add to the transportation authority’s current 1,200+ lighting units installed at bus stops along major transit corridors.

Urban Solar has worked with OCTA in the past and is thrilled to continue its relationship with the agency to provide reliable solar powered safety and security lighting for the riders of Orange County.
