There’s a new addition to River Campus scenery: a solar-powered charging station that was installed between Rush Rhees Library and Meliora Hall last month. Housing four electrical outlets and two USB outlets, the 235-watt Solar Dok allows the campus community to use sustainable energy to charge their laptops, cell phones, and other mobile devices while enjoying the outdoors. It is also equipped with LED lights for nighttime use. The table is constructed entirely of recycled or recyclable materials, including approximately 1,200 milk jugs.
