Solar Tower Green Initiative
We have been honoured to help make the SLT-6 Solar Light Tower at the Kicking Horse Canyon construction site in BC using our 12.8V 100Ah Low-Temperature Batteries. This tower operates year-round and is powered by 100% renewable energy. It's being used to illuminate the site at night and improve upon the diesel power generation of traditional light towers - reducing GHG emissions by 25-35 tonnes of CO2 annually. Solar light towers save on fuel consumption, operator costs and help to protect the environment.
