Free phone charging available at Aotea Square and Victoria Park.

As part of its Low Carbon Action Plan, Waitematā Local Board has placed two solar-powered device-charging tables in high-pedestrian areas of the inner city. 

The solar panels are on tables, and have four ‘rapid charge’ portals so people can charge their phones or other devices for free.

“We are delighted to be integrating smart city technology and sustainable energy sources into our urban spaces,” says Waitematā Local Board member Rob Thomas.

The chargers are at Aotea Square and near the basketball courts at Victoria Park, and are recognisable by their chess board design.
