Ericsson tests solar and wind-powered mobile sites in Germany

Ericsson and Deutsche Telekom are exploring how wind can power 5G mobile sites in order to reduce emissions and help operators cope with higher energy costs.

The site in Dettenheim in Bavaria has been partially powered by 12 square meters of solar panels for over a year. Now the two companies have added wind turbines capable of providing up to 5 kilowatts of additional power.
