Lit up is another solar tree from the company Solvis, this time at the location in the center of town of Nova Gradiska. The solar tree was set up within the BIOSOL project, which is being implemented within the Interreg IPA cross-border cooperation program Croatia-Serbia 2014-2020.projekta BIOSOL koji se provodi u okviru Interreg IPA programa prekogranične suradnje Hrvatska-Srbija 2014-2020.
The solar tree is made of a steel structure with a “canopy” of 18 solar leaves, rated at 810 W, which glow at night. The bench around the trunk can seat 12 people, and there are also connections for charging gadgets, from cell phones and laptops to electric bicycles.
There is also an information board on the trunk that provides useful information about solar energy, the project itself and how the solar tree works, all for the purpose of raising public awareness of renewable energy sources and improving the quality of life through the concept of smart cities. We would like to thank the City of Nova Gradiška for choosing Solvis as a partner in this project, with the wish that the light of 2021 begins with the irradiated light of the solar tree!
