Solar powered picnic tables in Tennessee

Tennessee’s Maryville College has taken the green approach by installing solar powered picnic tables.

The energy from the rooftop solar panels can charge cellphones and laptops. This invention will conveniently cater to the students energy needs.

The company,EnerFusion, installed two Solar Doks on the college’s campus. Maryville College has become the first university or college in Tennessee to have solar  powered tables.

The Solar Doks have three 45 watt photovoltaics and one 100 watt panel.The table and the seat tops have been made from 100 percent recycled materials.

EnerFusion’s Doks are wireless and feature four 110 volt standard GFCI outlets, a 700 lumen LED lighting system and two USB power outlets. The lighting system can be activated by the push of a button.

After Maryville College decision to put these tables on their campus, we expect to see more colleges and universities with Solar Doks on their campuses.
