Earl Rowe Provincial Park
Beautiful Earl Rowe Provincial Park is located on the Boyne River in a scenic river valley in Alliston, Ontario. As a green energy leader in the Ontario Parks Network, Earl Rowe has a focus on testing green technologies and becoming as energy independent as possible.
The Earl Rowe light configuration includes a concrete StressCrete pole, a 55W LED street light complete with dimming, a single solar panel, a wind turbine and (4) 12V batteries. The amount of energy being generated is far more than needed to just power the LED on the pole so the team installed a 400-watt inverter that takes power from the battery and is used to power up the ten outside pot lights on the adjacent building.
