The municipality of Heraklion, Crete, placed four smart benches in the city centre. The smart benches operate with solar energy and have full energy independence by offering to the users the potential to re-charge their mobile devices and browse the internet while resting.

It is an innovative and environment-friendly addition to the urban equipment which is funded by the municipality.
“If the solar benches are proved useful then we are going to get more,” said the mayor of Heraklion, Vassilis Lambrinos.
