Los Angeles, California – Fall 2019 – Renogy, the source for innovative solar and portable renewable energy solutions, has teamed up with the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro), the City of Los Angeles and Bicycle Transit Systems — the agency’s regional bike share program vendor — to help expand the county’s efforts to go green.
Metro’s Bike Share Program offers a viable two-wheeled transportation alternative in key areas of Los Angeles County while helping to reduce pollution, congestion and greenhouse gas emissions. In addition, Renogy’s solar products are designed to draw energy from the sun, which helps combat greenhouse gas emissions. Both organizations are committed to Los Angeles County’s efforts to go entirely green by 2050.
In the coming year, Metro’s Bike Share Program will be expanding its ride share programs with up to 40 additional kiosks in Central Los Angeles, all of which will include Renogy’s 300-Watt, 24 Volt Monocrystalline Solar Panels. The panels will ensure that the kiosks can remain self-sufficient so that riders can take advantage of Metro’s fleet of 1,500 bicycles to navigate the regions where bike share stations have been installed.
The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) is building the most ambitious transportation infrastructure program in the United States and is working to greatly improve mobility through its Vision 2028 Plan. Metro is the lead transportation planning and funding agency for L.A. County and carries about 1.2 million boardings daily on a fleet of 2,200 low-emission buses and six rail lines.
Metro Bike Share is a partnership between Metro, the City of Los Angeles and the Port of LA. For more information on Metro’s Bike Share Program, please visit https://bikeshare.metro.net/
