Pearse College of Further Education has set up a mobile phone charging hub for students, powered 100% from a small solar panel.
The panel is strategically placed at the main entrance to the college, and hub itself is in the lobby where it can be easily accessed.
Already it has become a focal and meeting point for students, but its main purpose is to highlight how simple and inexpensive it can be to harness the power of nature to help us live a more sustainable life.
Pearse College launched this, their latest green initiative, at their recent ( sunny) Course Showcase on 15th March. The local community were very impressed with everything on offer – and went away with their batteries charged – literally!
