(PLYMOUTH MEETING, PA) – With extreme weather patterns causing more power outages than ever, businesses are turning to solar power backup to stay plugged in.

In addition to offering an aesthetically designed alternative for outdoor device charging, CarrierClass Green Infrastructure's ConnecTableTM Solar Charging Stations can be combined to form a micro grid and a backup power source during extended power outages. ConnecTables are designed and constructed to operate in the worst case scenarios in a predictable way. As long as there is adequate sun to charge the batteries, it can provide ongoing power. But even with days of cloudy, foggy weather, the battery maintains its charge (depending on the amount of devices plugged in).

These robust commercial and residential power stations are available in caf, picnic, and deck table forms and bring a unique perspective to today's techno-dependent consumer's ever present need to stay connected. With seamless integration into a variety of landscapes, ConnecTables enhance the sustainability and traditional use of a variety of public spaces. They are also of growing interest to organizations that desire to deploy solar, reduce greenhouse gases, meet sustainability requirements, and improve their landscapes while showcasing their green image.

These fully engineered solar power charging and backup power systems are designed to accommodate a range of table design aesthetics, surface materials, and site design objectives. They are an ideal enhancement for universities, city parks, outdoor malls, sports complexes, mixed-use developments, theme parks, and more.

Qualifying organizations may be eligible for low interest financing of the tables through the Sustainable Energy Fund ( Tables qualify for the 30% investment tax credit[1][2] offered to businesses that install solar. Universities can also use designated green funds to purchase tables.
