The Solar Charging Picnic Table gives students the ability to charge electronic devices at a solar-powered charging station. Made of recycled plastics, the table is entirely "green" and comes equipped with an umbrella, four seats, a solar array, a 110-volt charger, a display box and two USB ports.


Solar Array

Solar Array In 2004, SIU received a grant to install a 28kW photovoltaic solar array by the Plant Service Operations building.  Since then, the array has produced over 91,000 kWh of electricity to offset electric purchases from other sources, and has been used for educational and research opportunities.
