SOLAR CELL PHONE CHARGING STATION

Our apartment just put this station in the pool area...


It's sponsored by one of the local power companies.


There are cables running down the center pole that are for various devices, including phones, tablets and e-readers.

Cell Phone Solar Power Charging Station
And it's all powered by the sun!  

Yep, the three "wings" at the top are solar panels and charge batteries inside the pole.  What a brilliant idea this is.  We love to see little things like this...it's the little things that eventually add up to bigger things and slowly, the world gets a bit 'greener'.  We'd love one of these at the farm, LOL!

That is such forward thinking. It sounds like you've bought into the right place. As for the farm, spend a motza (a lot of money) and go full solar then you could charge everything courtesy of the sun. LOL!

That is great. Wish more solar power was available (translation: wish solar panels were more affordable)

Great idea! Every little bit helps.

That's great. If I can ever afford to do so, I want to make my deck into a true Florida room with half walls, windows with screens, and best of all, maybe a roof with solar panels!

Love,
Janie

Absolutely brilliant. There should be more of it. Much more.

It is isn't it? We were pleasantly surprised. Oh how we'd love to do solar at the farm, and we just might but we might need some tax credits or something, ha.

That's so funny, that's exactly what I said when I saw it, I was all "wow that is so cool!"

1st Man said...

Yes, us too. And it is sad that it's SO expensive it prices most people out. I'm guessing the oil companies have some dog in that race, as the saying goes...

1st Man said...

Exactly, it all adds up doesn't it?

1st Man said...

Now that would be SO neat wouldn't it? That would be a great place for some panels for sure. Thanks!! Luv ya back!

So much more! Yep, I love seeing these steps but gosh we just need so much more...
