Reliable Year-Round Solar Lighting

One of the most common misconceptions about solar lighting is the belief that solar systems are only effective in very sunny locations and aren’t suitable for colder climates with long winter nights. But with advances in solar technology and smart system design, Urban Solar has successfully created and deployed solar lights that work in winter across North America, including northern locations with freezing temperatures.

Urban Solar’s LED area lighting systems operate year-round, regardless of rain, cloud or fog. Our systems provide bright, consistent lighting each and every night, based on NASA-provided solar and weather data for each specific location. This factors in rain and cloud cover, and each system is designed to provide a minimum of five days’ autonomy—even in locations with long, dark winters.

All of our solar lighting solutions are designed to meet the demands of our clients’ locations. Talk to our team to find out how we can help with your next project.
