Bryant Park in New York City Begins Testing Solar-Powered Smartphone Charging Stations

Solar Charging

Bryant Park in midtown Manhattan has installed a movable prototype solar-powered charging station, capable of charging up to six smartphones and other compatible devices at once. The station is the first of seven created by Green Barrel Energy Inc. and Landscapeforms, which are set to be deployed in the park in summer 2014, followed by additional units in other parts of New York City and the United States.
