Spin is all set to place solar-powered docking stations

E-scooter Company Spin will place dozens of start-up’s solar-powered docking stations in two cities this summer. The objective to set these stations is to reduce sidewalk clutter and attract business. Electric scooters are said to be posing problems outside many storefronts and heavily trafficked buildings. Unevenly parked and prone to tipping over etc.

Now two U.S. cities, Washington and Ann Arbor, Mich., have agreed to move forward with a 60-day pilot program, being launched by the electric scooter company Spin and a California start-up called Swiftmile — involves installing dozens of electric docking stations on sidewalks as a way to charge e-scooters.
