Abstract

On August 24, 1992 hurricane Andrew damaged and destroyed much of south Florida. The storm destroyed buildings, structures, and traffic devices along the highway. Travel was hazardous with debris in the roadway, traffic signals damaged or not working, and signs missing. This disaster offered a unique opportunity to research and evaluate the potential for using photovoltaic power systems in emergency traffic control situations. This report describes the findings of this study conpleted by the Florida Solar Energy Center sponsored by the Florida Department of Transportation.
