Day 156 – Solar Art

Solar panel tree in Bristol City phone charging point

“The use of solar energy has not been opened up because the oil industry does not own the sun.” ~ Ralph Nader
This fabulous solar tree sits in Bristol City Centre looking like a piece of modern public art, which it is, but it also has a use. At the base of it are a series of plugs, protected from the rain by little hoods, that you can plug your phone charger into and recharge your battery for free using the power generated by the tree that rises up into the sky above your head. Now that is what I call brilliant, art that has a practical, environmentally friendly, use.
