BUS STOP PRESS!

AJ SPECIFICATION - UPDATE

The next time you are wondering through London's dark streets, look out for one of the 1,200 solar bus stops that are popping up between now and March 2006.

Canadian company Carmanah Technologies has been awarded a contract worth $1.5 million (approx £850,000) for the solar LED-illuminated stands. Each bus stop contains a sophisticated energy management system that controls the available energy, so systems work reliably in all weather conditions - all year round.

When there is a shortage of light, the luminance is dimmed down to give the battery an opportunity to recharge itself.

The Microsource processor has been trialled since 2002 and the company even offers a 10-day autonomy guarantee.
