While smartphones are certainly getting smarter, the average battery life is draining faster than ever. What good are all those clever apps and devices when your battery dies in the middle of a college campus, office complex, mall, or theme park?
CarrierClass Green Infrastructure introduces ConnecTableTM Solar Charging Stations. These robust commercial and residential power stations are available in café, picnic, and deck table forms and bring a unique perspective to today’s techno-dependent consumer¹s ever-present need to stay connected. With seamless integration into a variety of landscapes, ConnecTables enhance the sustainability and traditional use of a variety of public spaces. They are also of growing interest to organizations that desire to deploy solar, reduce greenhouse gases, meet sustainability requirements, and improve their landscapes while showcasing their green image.
