City of Corona today unveiled to the public its newly installed solar bus shelter providing comfort to its public transportation customers while being capable of generating clean, renewable energy through a roof ornamented with highly efficient solar panels. The installation marked the first grid-connected solar system for bus shelters.

"The grid-tie solar bus shelter is a perfect example of micro-generation. The solar technology available today combined with structures which exist in our environment have the potential to be mini distributed solar power plants with the combined potential to contribute megawatts of power back to our grid."
