Two smart solar energy benches were installed in Kangas, with built-in solar cells and batteries. The solar energy produced by the benches provide lighting for the two sheds in the Kangas yard garden, and enable the electronic locking, and while you are sitting on the bench, you can charge your mobile phone and use the wireless Wi-Fi connection.
- It is great that we get this kind of concrete smart city experiment in Kangas during the summer. There are already solar panels on two roofs in the Kangas area, but now the utilisation of solar energy becomes more visible, says City of Jyväskylä network manager Tanja Oksa.
