Tampa, FL Solar Intersection Project creates off-grid energy for traffic lights during emergencies

Tampa, FL Solar Intersection Project Off-Grid Energy Lights


City officials sought a reliable method for powering traffic lights following outages caused by Hurricane Irma in 2017. Solar Earth installed 84 solar panels to power traffic lights at a downtown intersection. The panels are slip resistant and durable enough to withstand up to five tons of weight. Intersection lights can operate for up to three days on solar power during power outages. An electrical box near the panels explains the environmental and safety benefits of the technology.
