The Village of New Maryland
New Brunswick, Canada
Clear Blue provided 13 Smart Off-Grid lighting solutions for sidewalk lighting along a roadway in the Village of New Maryland, New Brunswick.
Why Smart Off-Grid?
The Village of New Maryland wanted to install lighting systems on the sidewalk to encourage patrons to use the town’s walkways, parks, and trails more frequently, and into the evening. New Maryland is also making an effort to increase its use of alternative energy sources and solar technology to increase the municipality's capacity to handle extreme weather events.
The 13 systems were installed as part of the town’s celebration of Canada 150. The Illumient lighting systems have helped advance the town’s green initiatives, while also encouraging patrons to enjoy more of the town’s green spaces and nearby local businesses. According to the town's public works supervisor Rockland Miller, the project has been well received, “We’ve already had a lot of positive comments from residents and visitors alike in reaction to this investment in the community.” Given the project’s success, New Maryland is considering installing more solar lights throughout the community.Read the News
