Croatia’s focus on being environmentally friendly and efficient use of energy from renewable sources continues with a solar tree placed in the Dalmatian city of Šibenik on Monday.
The solar tree, located on the Šibenik riva in front of the Gat Vrulje, is equipped with a bench for sitting, lighting, USB ports, wireless mobile and tablet recharging and Wi-Fi. Everything is 100% powered by the sun thanks to four photovoltaic panels.
“We want this solar tree to be our symbol in the fight against climate change. It is placed on a busy part of Šibenik’s waterfront, especially during the summer”, Goran Pauk, Šibenik Prefect said at today’s opening.
Earlier this month the Krka National Park, which is located in the Šibenik County, had three solar trees placed for the first time.
