A partnership between phone service provider AT&T, Goal Zero the solar power people and the design firm Pensa has come up with Street Charge! These are Smartphone and tablet charging stations planned for New York, there will be twenty five of these stations placed in busy areas where passers by can grab a quick power boost to keep their battery topped up so that it does not fail before the day is out!
According to Joe Atkin, President and CEO of Goal Zero, he said in a press release;
We’re excited to team up with AT&T and Pensa to help make New York a little greener and solar power a little more accessible. Nearly half of all Americans own a smartphone and the amount of time we spend on handheld devices has increased dramatically. All too often, we hear the dreaded low-battery beep and it happens at the most inconvenient times. Street Charge will fix that.
