WorldGSM solar powered telecom tower stations soon to surface in India
Telecommunication towers in India are destined to go green, with Vihaan Networks Limited (VNL) and lithium ion battery maker Boston Power having developed small-scale telecom stations powered by the sun that will show up next year. The stations called WorldGSM will operate from a bunch of solar panels, without hooking on to the grid. The batteries are capable of powering up these towers for a whole three days without sunlight. This one sure will help spread the mobile phone network to places that are far-fetched and have no connections to electrical grids whatsoever, particularly in rural areas, making communication an easier task.
A unique touch given to telecom towers, the WorldGSM will help make the world a smaller place, pulling in rural areas into communication.
