Charging your phone is easier than ever in Gainesville, thanks to a test project with the city of Gainesville and Pure Energy Solar.  The company has installed 10 solar phone charging stations across the city for anyone to charge their phone or other portable devices for free.  The charging stations use solar panels to charge batteries, so you can use the re-charging stations day or night.  The six month pilot program is funded entirely by Gainesville-based Company, Pure Energy Solar with an option for the city to purchase the equipment once the program is complete.  The solar charging stations are located at Depot Park, City Hall, Butler Plaza, Helyx Bridge (DNA-looking bridge that crosses SW 13th street near Shands), Fred Cone Park on east University Avenue, Possum Creek Park on NW 53rd Avenue near 43rd Street, Westside Park on NW 34th Street, the Rosa Parks RTS Downtown transfer station across from Depot Park, the Northeast Pool on NE 14th Street and 6th Street rail trail.
