Street Charging Solar Power
Have you ever been out in the city and needed to charge your phone? of course you have, the more we need our phones the more likely we need to charge them or other device before we get home or back to the office. This new idea from PENSA to be installed in the streets of New York is an excellent idea to use renewable energy for everyday use for many users.
AT&T have adopted this technology and each waterproof unit will have the AT&T logo on it.
There’s three 15-watt solar panels and a 168 watt-hour battery, enabling each Street Charge to power up to six devices for several days without exposure to the sun. Sure, it’s probably impractical to fill your gadget’s cell completely, but if you have a few minutes to spare, you’ll be able to juice up and go. You can plug in phones, tablets, cameras and pretty much any usb device.
If Telstra dont act on an idea like this for the Australian market, especially Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, and Perth but im sure any local council should get on this idea as apart from a useful idea to many while out shopping or drinking and eating, it could also be seen as a symbol to many of a great use of renewable energy.
