Solar Pods Find Homes in Downtown Pittsfield
The City of Pittsfield has announced a partnership with local businesses,
Berkshire Bank, Downtown Pittsfield, Inc., and the nonprofit green energy company, SolarFi, to bring SolarFi’s Privé pods to the community.
Beginning Thursday, October 1, SolarFi will be installing six of its premium Privé pods throughout the downtown Pittsfield area, to showcase their versatility and limitless uses.
Privé pods are a unique experience for social-distanced dining in a glass house that combines the arts, renewable energy, and sustainability. This allows for safe, secure, commerce in an innovative way, rain or shine. Privé pods provide a space for people to spend time outside, socialize, and dine, all within a safe environment. The pods use solar power to provide users with lighting, air conditioning and heat, device charging stations, and Bluetooth-powered speakers
The Privé pods range in size, from 6 feet by 4 feet to 8 feet by 8 feet, and they accommodate anywhere from two to ten people. Park Square and Hotel on North will each house three pods that are anticipated to be available for public use after 4 pm on Thursday, October 1.
The Park Square Privé pods will feature graphic panels curated by the
Berkshire Museum featuring a collection of historical images of Pittsfield. The public is invited to explore the Privé pods at the park this weekend.
The Privé pods at Hotel on North will be used for additional outdoor seating for their restaurant, Eat on North, giving diners the option to enjoy meals privately and safely. Eat on North will be open 5 to 10 pm this week through Saturday, October 3. The Hotel on North Privé pods will also feature special graphic panels curated by the Berkshire Museum.
SolarFi is a Northeast-based nonprofit organization, and all pods are made in New York. SolarFi’s collaboration with Pittsfield is a special opportunity to experience the intersection of technology, green energy, and socially distanced commerce.
SolarFi is built on revolutionizing commerce, development, and energy, allowing for entrepreneurship, efficiency, and sustainability.
