Manufactured by ClearWorld LLC, the lights are designed to produce electricity via a photovoltaic panel that wraps around a standard light pole. The wrap itself houses a lithium-ion battery and wireless control unit. The lights have the capability to operate for 15 days in cloudy conditions, notify operators when there is a fault, and generate electricity to feed back into the grid.
