Six multifunctional seats powered by the Sun’s energy have been installed in the centre of Bosnia and Herzegovina’s capital city. The devices serve as public lighting and as chargers for mobile phones and tablets, Radio Sarajevo’s portal reported.

The solar benches give information via bluetooth about air quality, energy generation, and reduction of carbon dioxide emissions, said Amina Omičević, expert on ecology who initiated the project.

Sarajevo got its public solar-powered devices thanks to support from the embassy of Sweden. The design of the benches is based on LED technology.

Recently a very similar solar bench was constructed and installed in Solin in the south of neighbouring Croatia. Also, an inventor from Larissa in Greece created a version made of wood as a gift to his city.
