The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) has published ANSI C136.40-2011 American National Standard for Roadway and Area Lighting Equipment — Solar Lighting Systems.

This new standard, produced by the ANSI Committee 136 for Roadway and Area Lighting, defines requirements for the specification and installation of dc solar-powered roadway and area lighting systems. Topics addressed include light source requirements, batteries, internal labeling, and power controls. As municipalities look for ways to take advantage of solar-powered equipment, this standard will provide valuable guidance for installations.
