Solar power market leader GOAL ZERO is partnering with Life is good and
The Rose Kennedy Greenway Conservancy to offer an eco-friendly solution
to Bostonians facing a mobile device charging dilemma – public solar
powered charging stations known as Street Charge.

Street Charge features a modern design and is powered by the latest in

conveniently charge their phones and hand-held devices using built-in
USB ports and charging tips. Solar panels and lithium batteries are
elegantly incorporated into each station to ensure that there is juice
for people to power up – day or night.

to our friends living in or visiting Boston who need a quick and
reliable charge for their mobile devices. We believe that Street Charge
is a great solution for our community.”

Street Charge is modular to meet the needs of architects, developers,
and city planners seeking to offer amenities in commercial and public
