It is a base station for a number of current and future Student sustainability projects and has been funded by the 2015 Ni-Expo event held at RVC

It is an off grid solar powered system

It is an attractive Park Bench/Study Spot placed at a peaceful location on Spring Creek with two seats.

It includes two USB charging stations for both everyday use and as an emergency power source if the campus power goes out.

It is a full functioning Weather station with data publicly available (above)

Soon it will have an after dark and emergency self  powered safety light.

Other sensors and possibly more power outputs will be added as it is intended to be a base for future sustainability projects
