Clear Channel UK Launches its First Solar-Powered Advertising Bus Shelter in London

Clear Channel UK has launched its first solar-powered advertising bus shelter on Waterloo Bridge, London using a specially manufactured solar LED lighting kit from Zeta Specialist Lighting.
Four solar panels have been installed onto Transport for London’s (TfL) bus stop, converting sunlight into battery power. They allow Clear Channel to light up the courtesy light and advertising panel when it’s dark using renewable energy.
The solar-powered bus shelter is equipped with an energy management system that knows how much power it has generated. This allows it to automatically dim the lights if power is running low or in daylight.
Leon Daniels, TfL’s Managing Director of Surface Transport, said: “As part of the Year of the Bus we are not only celebrating what London’s extensive bus network offers to passengers now, but also what the future may hold. This technology trial demonstrates both innovation and sustainability and I hope it will be the start of something that could spread across our network.”
