In line with the mission of conservation at the Milwaukee County Zoo, the Zoo has added a solar powered cell phone charging station. A complimentary offering to guests, the station is located near the Depot Snack Shop patio.
The charging station will be operational during high season at the Zoo, from April 1 to October 31. The station is completely solar generated with battery storage for overnight charging.
In order to track the conservation efforts of the solar powered charging station, graphics will be used to interpret information on the amount of energy generated by the panels, the number of devices plugged in and more.
The cell phone charging station is provided by We Energies. A second station is planned for the Zoo’s new West Entry in 2018.
