That sickening feeling people get when they notice that their cell phones have died may soon be replaced by a feeling of relief. A new type of bench that will be installed in various Boston parks will include — cell phone chargers, the city recently announced.
The chargers will run on solar power and will also collect data on air quality and noise levels. The result of a partnership between the City of Boston and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Media Lab, the devices will be able to charge two phones at a time.
“Your cell phone doesn’t just make phone calls, why should our benches just be seats?” asked Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh.
Power4Patriots applauds this move to utilize solar power to benefit people, and encourages other municipalities to follow suit in order to take pressure off of a vulnerable electrical grid and increase reliability.
Power4Patriots is a series of videos and manuals describing how to build solar panels, wind turbines, water heaters and solar heaters. The system includes six videos demonstrating how to build a solar panel, including choosing the right materials, finding the right site for the system and avoiding costly mistakes, as well as two instruction manuals with step-by-step, illustrated directions. It also includes four videos and two instruction manuals detailing how to build a wind turbine.
Power4Patriots Savings Up to 75 Percent
Company Partner Allen Baler says that installing solar panels and a wind turbine at one’s home will cut energy costs by as much as 75 percent. On average, the costs are under $200 to build a solar panel and under $200 to build a wind turbine. Consumers who purchase already-made solar panels and wind turbines spend three to four times that amount.
The time commitment to build a solar panel ranges from two to four hours, with the first one requiring more time than subsequent panels. A wind turbine requires a handful of hours to build.
Power4Patriots was created as a way to allow anyone to become independent of high power bills and outages. Cost-effective and uncomplicated, Power4Patriots teaches people how to build their own, environmentally friendly sources of energy.
