Toronto based off-grid solar company, Clear Blue Technologies has confirmed the installation of its 13 illumient solar-powered street lights in the village of New Maryland of New Brunswick.

Clear Blue Technologies lights have been strategically spaced approximately 120-160 meters apart along a two-lane highway running through the center of the village, illuminating the sidewalk. It creates an environment where tourists and residents can stop to take advantage of the local businesses.

The installation is the part of New Maryland’s green initiative to encourage the use of solar energy and reducing its overall carbon footprint.

Public Works Supervisor, Rockland Miller said, “We wanted to create a ‘downtown’ feeling in the municipality. Until now the walkway was not very inviting for pedestrians, with several unlit areas which discouraged foot-traffic in the evening. Installing Clear Blue’s Smart Off-Grid lighting has created a welcoming atmosphere, in line with our vision for the Village of New Maryland.”

The initiative by the village of New Maryland falls under the umbrella green energy project ‘A Canada 150 Project’. The funding for the solar streetlights installation was received by the village under this nationwide initiative marking Canada’s 150thanniversary in 2017.

Co-founder and CEO, Clear Blue, Miriam Tuerk said, “We are thrilled to be helping the Village of New Maryland achieve their green goals and improve the lives of their residents. This duality is at the core of what we do, and the final product is a perfect combination of both environmental responsibility and public benefits.”

With the success of this initial project, the Village of New Maryland is considering installing more solar-powered lights in other locations within the community.
