A Charge, Free of Charge

City Charge, nyc
Photo by myself in Bryant Park.

An absolute no-brainer idea of the times - a solar-powered charging station that is free to use. Its solar panel is smartly angled south. I'm sure these exist in other cities too, though possibly not outside?

Currently there are only 45 of these in the five boroughs (Manhattan, Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens and Staten Island).  I'm surprised there aren't more.

ps: We've had the least humid August here, ever. Usually it is absolutely unbearable, but this year, August feels like how October 'should' feel.

Is it the same in your neck of the woods?

Great idea. I wonder how long it exist before it is broke by misuse or vandalism but as idea wonderful.

It is the same weather here, Kitty! We haven't had one day over 30˚C in July or August and usually we are sweltering in the heat and humidity. I don't mind but it does feel like we have had no summer. Next week is supposed to be hot, they say
