Israeli installs free solar phone charging in streetlamps
The company installed solar pillars at Herzliya City. Each pillar is equipped with a USB socket and an automotive spark plug, the firm said. The pillar stores enough energy accumulated by the panels during the day to enable street lighting at night and devicecharging at all hours, the company added.
Installation of the pillars, which will provide lighting and charge spots free to residents, was financed by the Herzliya Municipality. “The State of Israel has an abundance of possibilities for exploiting solar energy, particularly during a period in which electricity prices are rising all the time,” said Guy Saar, the CEO of Pashut Yarok.
The pillars, he explained, require neither the energy costs associated with expensive streetlamp lighting nor a connection to electricity infrastructure. “We are only in the beginning stages of executing our abilities,” Saar added.
