Bradley Corp. offers the new light-powered handwashing fixture.

The Bradley nditeTM technology uses photovoltaic cells integrated into the top of the Express Lavatory System to capture natural light or normal room-level lighting when it is available and store the energy for later use in a battery-free system, eliminating the need for electrical hookups. The handwashing stations are environmentally friendly, eliminate battery replacement costs and help reduce the 2.5 billion pounds of batteries sent to landfills annually.
