PARKEON: applying eco-design principles for over 15 years.

We aim to minimise our meters environmental impact throughout its entire lifecycle. By employing an eco-design process, and involving experts in materials, power management and IT systems, we ensure our meters are considerate to the environment from manufacturing, to installation and even on-street operations.

When it does come time to retire a Parkeon meter (usually not for at least 10 years) over 95% of the meter can be recycled, including the batteries.


Solar Power Expertise

Since then they’ve led the way in the research and deployment of sophisticated solar power management. Today, more than 120,000 solar powered Parkeon meters can be found throughout the world.


Environmentally Friendly Parking Management

Meters recycleBecause our multi-bay parking meters typically control 8-10 parking spaces on-street, your staff will only have to maintain and collect 10-20% of your parking inventory compared to a single space parking meter solution. This means fewer visits to the meters, meaning less driving around for your staff – saving on time and energy!
