FAMU's First Solar Dok Installed



FAMU Solar DokThe FAMU Green Coalition, and Division of Architecture faculty advisor Olivier Chamel, recently installed the University's first Solar Dok -- a solar powered recharging station for laptops, tablets, and cell phones. Prof. Chamel noted, “The installation of a Solar Dok on campus is an interactive way to show students that solar energy is a reality and has concrete applications such as recharging portable devices. As we educate our students to become leaders, it is critical that they are exposed to and understand the role of renewable energy. Overall, it is about raising awareness.” The Solar Dok was funded by a grant from the Siemens Corporation and is located on the quadrangle.
