At an unveiling at the Big E Fair, the Baker-Polito Administrations announced the future installation of 13 of our Model Z solar-powered public charging and Wi-Fi hotspot stations. The Model Z stations will be installed at 13 public facilities across Massachusetts. The project is the result of a partnership between the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs (EEA), the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) and the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MassCEC) to expand the use of innovative, sustainable technology at state facilities while providing the public with convenient power solutions  at outdoor recreational centers including beaches and playgrounds.


“Technology plays a critical role in supporting our daily lives, and the installation of thirteen solar-powered mobile device charging stations within the state park system will increase the accessibility of these locations allowing families to spend more time enjoying the state’s natural resources,” said Governor Charlie Baker. “Massachusetts has a long, proud history of supportive innovative ideas, and these public stations serve as the latest example of our dedication to providing inventive solutions for the public to directly benefit from.”
