Solar Flowers In Boston
Last Sunday while walking to Fenway Park to see the Redsox I spied a weird site near the Prudential Mall. It was a display of huge metal flower with seating for 10 people.
Upon closer inspection I realized that this flower had solar panels are mounted on pedals of giant metal daisies up to 18 feet tall, and the generated electricity runs through a molded plastic green bench with 110-volt outlets and free wireless Internet. These solar powered charging stations can charge or power laptops and cellphones.
The solar powered charging station is part of a national marketing effort for its new Prius, Toyota has “planted” five solar-powered “FLOWER” charging stations in front of the Prudential mall.
Very Cool!!! Read the Boston Globe article.
