Solar Powered Mobile Charging Station Arrives at The Forks

The Forks, Winnipeg – A first in Canada, The Forks now has a stand-alone, solar mobile charging station available to the public. Sycamore Energy Inc. (Sycamore), a designer, installer and distributor of renewable energy products, recently installed the system outside the Tower Atrium at The Forks.

“As part of our Target Zero goals, we are working towards reducing our impact on the earth and this is one more innovation that gets us closer,” says Paul Jordan, Chief Executive Officer, The Forks. “People are always looking for places to plug in their devices and now they can while using solar energy.”

The Solar Street Charge is powered by solar panels and can charge up to six mobile devices at once. The solar mobile charging units work day or night, in sun or shade. During the day, three mono-crystalline solar panels collect the sun’s energy to charge up powerful internal batteries. This enables Sycamore to power up phones, tablets, and other devices quickly – even when the sun isn’t shining.

“Since almost everyone carries a mobile device, people are asking for charging stations in public spaces. The Solar Street Charger is a timely product to be introducing to the Canadian marketplace,” says Justin Phillips, President, Sycamore. “This is the modern phone booth and Sycamore is excited to fill such an important public need.”

The Solar Street Charge represents an important step towards integrating renewable energy into public life. Sycamore expects to see more of these units available for use in the coming months.
