AT&T launched their Street Charge program today, opening solar-powered mobile charging stations around New York City’s five boroughs. This initiative, for which AT&T partnered with solar industry leader Goal Zero, was inspired after Hurricane Sandy left so many people without power.
The charging stations, which are currently available in only four locations, are in plans to arrive in 21 additional places around the city. It will be interesting to see how successful this program will be in such a highly populated place like New York. You can see AT&T’s official press release after the break.
