Light on demand
Techtrolec, one of Gibraltar’s most successful and reputable commercial electrical contractors and Zeta Specialist Lighting have delivered an eco-saving and cost-efficient lighting solution for The Gibraltar Bus Company.
Techtrolec won a competitive tender to supply lighting for some 56 bus stops across the Isthmus, after recommending the use of Zeta’s energy saving and emission-free Solar Shelter Lighting Kit, which comprises a specially manufactured, vandal resistant, solar panel that is attached to the roof of the shelter and harnesses the sun’s energy throughout the day. The solar energy charges the in-built long life maintenance free batteries, which in turn power high intensity LEDs to illuminate the shelters from dusk till dawn.
The system maintains a constant low level of illumination until a passenger enters the shelter and activates the built in Passive Infra-Red technology (PIR), when light levels gently increase and remain fully activated until the passenger leaves, thus providing a cost-efficient, long-term sustainable solution that also meets the Government’s ideal of maintaining a greener, more sustainable transport service.
