Mobile phone network Orange have announced that they will providing an eco-friendly mobile phone charging service at this year’s Glastonbury festival.
Designed by Orange in conjunction with renewable energy company Gotwind, the ‘recharge Pod’ will be powered by a free standing wind turbine and solar panels, and will be capable of charging up to 100 mobile phones per hour.
Standing at 7 metres high, the turbine is understood to be the first in the world designed to be attached to a tent.
Festival goers should have little difficulty spotting the recharge Pod from a distance.
Glastonbury revellers will have free access to the recharge Pod, which is expected to be extremely popular with those wanting to send picture messages of their favourite bands to jealous friends.
