The solar-powered outdoor furniture that helps you stay connected
An innovate Polish company has designed an array of solar powered devices that could help the connected generation’s electrical devices stay charged.
Alex Electro, a child company of Alex Autogas from Kleosin near Białystok, has designed picnic tables, solar benches and bike ports that will also double as recharging stations.
Established at the end of 2015 the company started by selling solar panels before developing new products that included electric car recharging stations, LED solar powered street lamps and their ‘street furniture’.
Tomasz Płoński, Technical Director at Alex Electro, said: “Our street furniture range includes solar benches, bike ports, bicycle sheds which allow you to charge devices using free energy from the sun. We also offer components for solar installations, smart homes and solar lighting such as garden lighting and street lighting.”
The company has already had domestic and international success, selling to Germany, Austria and throughout Poland.
The urban street furniture has been used in public parks and at tourist venues, giving cyclists the opportunity to secure their bikes and recharge their electrical equipment outside.
Campers have benefited from the ‘street furniture’ as there are options to use the power supply for travel fridges, pumps for mattresses and recharging electric single-track vehicles.
Płoński told Mambiznes: “We want to reach as many European countries as possible so that as many European cities as possible use our solutions.
“Everyone can be a potential client from private individuals to local governments and public institutions.
“The biggest problem is making customers aware of the benefits of using our small architecture in urban environments.”
