Goal Zero Teams up with AT&T and Pensa to Offer Street Mobile Charging Stations
      06/18/13 02:56 PM

GOAL ZERO announced today it's collaborating with ATT and Brooklyn design studio PENSA, to offer an eco-friendly solution in New York City, a public solar powered charging stations known as Street Charge. Here are the details:

Street Charge features a modern design and is powered by the latest in solar panel and battery technology from Goal Zero. People will be able to conveniently charge their phones and hand-held devices using built-in USB ports and charging tips. Solar panels and lithium batteries are elegantly incorporated into each station to ensure that there is juice for people to power up - day or night.

Pensa's prototype Street Charge was tested last summer in Brooklyn. Installed in a reclaimed public space in tech-savvy DUMBO, Street Charge gave people a perfect place to relax and recharge. Teaming up with Goal Zero, the market leader in portable solar solutions, was the logical next step to develop this concept further.

Street Charge will be modular to meet the needs of architects, developers, and city planners seeking to offer amenities in commercial and public spaces. Besides providing power, Street Charge will have the potential for lighting, WIFI, and signage for ads and way finding.

Street Charge will make its debut on June 18th at Fort Greene Park. AT&T will then deploy units around New York this summer in high foot traffic areas like Brooklyn Bridge Park, Coney Island, Riverside Park, Rockaways, Summerstage in Central Park, Randall's Island, Governor's Island, Union Square, and Hudson River Park.
