As a leader in green initiatives in the parking technology space, Park Agility have implemented a number of projects incorporating solar powered wayfinding signage as part of a parking management solution.

Solar powered way finding signage is an ideal solution where traditional infrastructure is either not available or cost prohibitive and it works by mounting a solar panel on top of the sign to capture sunlight and convert it into electrical energy which is stored in a battery within the sign. The battery then powers the electrical components of the sign, which includes what drivers can see - the LED lights that provide real time availability and directional information – as well as communication devices which send real time data to management teams for optimisation and reporting.

There are several benefits to opting for a solar-powered solution including;

1. Energy Efficiency: Solar-powered wayfinding signage operates on renewable energy, which reduces reliance on traditional electricity sources. It is a particularly useful solution for outdoor signage that needs to be illuminated 24/7, as it can consume a lot of energy.

2. Cost Effective: Solar-powered wayfinding signage is less costly (in terms of both time and money) to install than signs that require connection to existing electrical infrastructure. They also enjoy reduced ongoing energy costs which can result in significant cost savings over the life of the signage.

3. Flexible: Solar-powered wayfinding signage can be installed in remote locations where it may be difficult or expensive to connect to the power grid.

4. Durable: Solar-powered wayfinding signage is designed to withstand harsh weather conditions, including extreme heat, cold, and moisture which makes it a reliable and durable option.

5. Eco-Friendly: Using solar-powered wayfinding signage is an environmentally friendly option, as it reduces the carbon footprint associated with traditional electricity sources. This can help organizations demonstrate their commitment to sustainability and environmentally responsible practices.

Coupled with Park Agility’s ongoing maintenance services, incorporating solar powered signage into a parking management project is a win-win for organisations and smart cities looking to demonstrate their green credentials to stakeholders and the driving public.
