Solar Picnic Table

ASES fully designed a solar powered picnic table capable of powering electronics such as cell phones, laptops, speakers, and household electronics like blenders, coffee makers, and more.

This design was created in Solidworks and was integrated with your average picnic table.  The design included all the components needed from the solar panels to the outlets. Wind load calculations were also executed on the proposed design to ensure it would not topple in high wind speeds.

Unfortunately, at the time ASES designed this project, the club did not have the funds to move forward and build it.
