RTA Terminal Station Solar
Public transportation agencies are one of the largest energy users in any urban area, and often have the most to gain from solar and energy improvements. Solar Alternatives recently completed a custom solar laminate project at the Regional Transit Authority (RTA) Carrollton Terminal Station, located in a busy area of downtown New Orleans. The solar component project supplies power to a commercial-grade LED lighting system as well as media display centers.
The unique structure in this project was designed by Tulane University architecture students after Hurricane Katrina, and its construction involved custom fabrication and extensive site work. It is now a solar educational feature for the many locals and tourists that frequent the station.
