Solar Power Considerations

When considering a solar-powered solution, you will need to plan the height and size of your pole.

  • We recommend at least a 4-inch diameter pole to support solar panels, since they can easily catch the wind and act like a sail.
  • The bottom of your speed display needs to be six to eight feet from the ground to meet FHWA MUTCD standards and to help minimize vandalism.
  • You can mount the battery box behind the backside of the fixed sign to save pole real estate and neatly tuck the equipment out of sight.
  • A speed limit sign requires 30" x 36" with one foot of separation between the display and the top of pole solar panel racks.
  • For pole space allocation when mounting solar panels on the side of the pole:

a) Allow 2 feet when using our SpeedCheck solar brackets


b) For larger sized panels we use UniRack brackets. Allow 4 feet to support 85 to 130watts, and 6 feet to support 150 watts or more.
