AT&T Launches Free Street Charge Solar Mobile Stations in NYC

AT&T Launches Free Street Charge Solar Mobile Stations in NYC
 
 

Solar power is the “in” thing right now. That is why AT&T began its Street Charge program in coordination with Goal Zero. It will provide free solar power for smartphones at 25 mobile recharge stations all across New York City.


A series of solar power stations where you could charge your smart phone were built by AT&T. They covered the five boroughs of New York with 25 free solar mobile charging stations. All this got underway after the devastation wrought by Hurricane Sandy. It wreaked havoc upon inhabitants of areas that lost all power connections thereby disabling the people from contacting their near and dear ones on their smart phones. Myriad connectors are available on the street stations including: USB, Micro USB, 30-pin and the lightning variety.

After extracting energy from the sun via the solar panels these stations store them in lithium batteries. And the important thing to bear in mind is that the stations continue to provide charging facilities throughout the night from these batteries. AT&T came up with the plan after teaming up with Goal Zero. This solution is especially handy for tourists and travelers who are in a hurry. The beauty of it all is that the power supply comes at no cost whatsoever. Thus virtually anybody can charge their smart phone in a matter of moments and head out wherever he or she may want to. The basic goal is to keep citizens of the Big Apple in touch with each other.

AT&T has been responsible for provision of amenities to smart phone owners before. The company was a pioneer in subway cellular service and also lent the public access to free Wi-Fi facility in over 25 parks in New York City.  The fact that smart phone batteries last for a limited time (barely 10 hours in fact) means that such service stations will come as a huge relief. Among the handful of places in New York where these solar powered recharging stations will be affixed are: Fort Green Park, Brooklyn Bridge Park, Coney Island, Riverside Park, Rockaways, Summerstage (Central Park), Randall’s Island, Governor’s Island, Union Square and Hudson River Park.

The project is on its way and it will take a few weeks before it is complete. You may attach phones, cameras, tablets and Pebble watches if you so wish. All of them will be recharged in a minimum amount of time. The devices are shaped like long poles with each one having three solar petals facing the sunlight. We must remember that no matter what the features may be on our smart phones, they are useless without a battery life. And that is precisely what these solar powered charge stations will see to for the sake of New York’s citizens.
