NEW YORK (GaeaTimes.com) — T-Mobile comes up with the latest buzz in Wireless Broadband biz.
Wireless carrier T-Mobile USA upholded a mobile cellular tower in Chalfont, Pennsylvania, which happens to be powered by a set of solar panels. This supposedly is the companies’ first site powered by renewable energy located in US.
The other pioneer is Alcatel-Lucent, which has committed to using renewable energy in all sorts of remote locations.
Reportedly, the T-Mobile site uses 12 solar panels, which should be enough to keep the site up and running without requiring a boost from the local Pennsylvania utility company, PECO.
PECO seems to have eyed a goal of producing up to 20 percent of its electricity from renewable energy sources apart from serving T-Mobile.
This is altogether a totally new concept and it seems this will take the Broadband business to new heights as their network will now be more vast and strong. What do you think?
