The Lansing Board of Water & Light and Live Green Lansing, the City of Lansing’s sustainability initiative, will unveil the city’s first Solar Power-Dok picnic table tomorrow, Tuesday, September 23 at 2 p.m. at the Lansing City Market. Developed by EnerFusion, a Lansing company, the table is designed to provide self-sustaining, green energy wherever it is placed outdoors with access to direct sunlight. With its innovative design, it provides users with surge protected electricity delivered via 4 GFCI outlets and 4 USB power outlets. It will be installed on the upper patio of the City Market, facing the Grand River where wireless internet will be accessible to users and solar exposure is ideal throughout the year. Visitors to the City Market will now be able to charge their cell phones and power their laptops while enjoying a great view of downtown Lansing!
The Solar Power-Dok table showcases the ingenuity of Michigan makers and demonstrates how cities, universities and businesses can integrate green technology into their operations.
Live Green Lansing promotes the adoption of green technologies in the region.
