2010 will see Puurgen launch its first Solar Roadside Signs. Such signs already adorn many of the UK’s roads and motorways so what will be different about Puurgen’s offering? Everything, according to its CEO John Charlick. He comments, “We have observed the performance of a lot of the solar signs installed in the UK at present and while the concept is brilliant and has our full backing, the reliability of many systems is questionable. In the summer months, most signs work very well but in winter, it’s quite a different story”. And this is because the power systems are not sized correctly according to Charlick. Puurgen’s systems will make use of their maximum power point tracker technology to squeeze every last Watt out of the solar panels and ensure that road users are safely informed of speed limits and road hazzards all year round.
