T-Mobile Installs First Solar-Powered Cell Tower

We caught wind of this a few days ago thanks to an article from GigaOM but with the whole G2 news cycle it kind of got lost in the fold. Sometimes though we have to congratulate a carrier for taking the first step in an environmentally friendly manner. T-Mobile is that carrier today having announced their very first Solar Powered cell tower in Pennsylvania. The site itself will generate enough power to keep itself off the electric grid and at times, feed back power into that grid. The tower itself while costing 2-3 times the normal price of a standard cell tower can have financial and of course positive marketing impact over the long run.
