Solar Umbrellas for the Outdoor Aquatic Center

Recipient:

University Recreation and Wellness

Amount:

$4,000

University Recreation and Wellness installed several solar paneled umbrellas at the Outdoor Aquatic Center. The solar panels power USB chargers for up to 3 devices and work independently from any power source. They create 54 Watts of electricity and the unit is fully charged with 5.5 hours of sunlight. In addition to sustainability, the umbrellas are a great way to promote skin safety and skin cancer awareness on the pool deck as part of a greater focus on total wellness.
