Technology is an amazing thing. Today the Union Square Partnership was pleased to partner with AT&T, Pensa, and Goal Zero to bring Union Square two amazing solar paneled cell phone chargers for the public to use completely FREE. Using the rays of our golden sun, these new chargers actively charge and store energy (so you can even use them at night and on cloudy days!). The program grew out of Superstorm Sandy when New Yorkers who had lost power for days flocked to city centers seeking a charge and a way to communicate to the outside world. Check out the new charging stations in Union Square Park’s West Side Seating Area and in the pedestrian plaza at 17th Street and Broadway.
