During the winter, northern Sweden gets only a few hours of sunshine a day. So an energy company in the town of Umeå placed light panels in bus stops to help commuters combat seasonal affective disorder:
The snow has not yet settled, and as a result the city is even darker than usual, something the energy company wants to fight artificially.
“Umeå residents both own us and are our customers and we believe we all need to be re-energized when it gets like this," Ernstson continued.
"Even though it snowed today, the sun had set by 2pm. People need to get their vitamin D somehow!”
