On July 2020, an OPTree was installed in Noel Lloyd Positive Action Movement Park in Road Town, the capital of the British Virgin Islands. The OPTree was donated by Sunew to the non-profit organization Green VI.
Prime Minister Andrew Fahie said the impact of Hurricane Irma in 2017 was a strong reminder of the fragility of the traditional power generation system. This region’s vulnerability to climate change led institutions to think about safer and more sustainable alternatives.
Now, the population will be able to enjoy the smart urban furniture to rest and stay connected without causing damage to the planet, being more integrated to the city in a comfortable, useful and sustainable way.
Furthermore, Green VI is now a member of the Sunew Green Community and has the opportunity to team up with other organizations that promote sustainable practices around the world.
The urban furniture installation received a lot of attention due to the OPV’s innovative technology and became a news headline in the local press. Watch the story!
