Solar-powered Street Charge units have been installed within the grounds of Belfast City Hall.

Operation

Provided by local firm Environmental Street Furniture (ESF), the two Street Charge units will enable the public to recharge their mobile phones, tablets and other electrical devices by USB connection if they’re running low while out and about.

Following on from installations at events and venues throughout Europe, including in Belfast during the Giro D’Italia in 2014, ESF is confident that by partnering with Belfast City Council, the units will be a welcome addition to the city centre.

Alan Lowry, ESF's Managing Director said: "We are very excited to have the opportunity to showcase the Street Charge units at Belfast City Hall. The concept is simple in that it uses sustainable solar power to charge electrical devices and by placing the units in such an accessible and popular space, we envisage that they will be readily used by members of the public.

“We have secured distribution of the Street Charge units across Europe through an agreement with the New York based designers and in addition to our new installation at Belfast City Hall, we have installed similar units in Prague, Barcelona and Milan.

“It is great to now see the units in Belfast, the city is certainly keeping up with cities across Europe. The Street Charge units are also designed to complement free Wi-Fi which is provided by Belfast City Council in public areas as part of its Smart Cities programme. We are confident that the units will prove a popular facility to keep our modern technology in operation while using environmentally-conscious power.”

Delivery

The Street Charge units are currently a temporary installation and will be available for public use during the City Hall’s opening hours.

The Lord Mayor of Belfast, Alderman Brian Kingston commented: "We are committed to sourcing and providing new accessible technology for all to use. The Street Charge units fall into the Council’s ongoing super connected Belfast scheme which, in addition to providing free Wi-Fi to members of the public, will provide a resource for them to charge their devices as and when required.”
