eTree - Powering The People

image description

In the French town of Nevers, with a population of approximately 37,000 on the Loire river, a solar tree was ‘planted’ for the public.
 
The eTree is a creation from Sologic, an Israeli company, with the first prototype unveiled in Israel in 2014.
 
Yoav Ben Dov, an Israeli artist, designed the eTree drawing inspiration from the acacia tree that can be found in the African savanna, Australian bush or the Israeli desert.
 
The solar panel shaped leaves allow people to charge their phone, recharge an electric bike, service Wifi, supply a water trough for animals, cold drinking water for the public, night illumination, LCD information panels as well as a shaded resting point.
