Best Place To Recharge: South First SolarPump

A Fifties-era gas pump doesn't look so unusual amid the tangle of trailers scattered about the South First Food Court at South First and Live Oak. But this neon-green pump goes the extra mile with cool solar panels for folks to recharge (at no charge) their battery-powered gadgets and scooters. Thanks to the forward-thinking partnership of the South First IBIZ District and Sol Design Lab, we now have a taste of a carbon-neutral future, without the annoying side effects of gas.
