Solar-powered charging stations
Two picnic tables equipped with solar-powered charging stations provide the U-M community the opportunity to charge electronics on campus. Made possible by U-M student group “Students for Clean Energy” through the Planet Blue Student Innovation Fund, the tables include power and USB receptacles. They are located at the Life Sciences Plaza near Palmer Commons and the south side of the Beyster Building next to the new North Campus Grove.
Each fall the Central Campus Diag transforms into a one-stop shop for all things related to sustainability at U-M, showcasing the breadth of work in the areas of research, education and operations. This annual event has taken place for 25 years.
