If you had to charge a phone using solar power, wind power or fossil fuels, which source of energy would you pick? This was exactly the question NRG asked to people at an airport with a special charging booth.
Knowing that an airport is one of the places where people are most desperate to keep their phones topped up, NRG created a standing charging station with three separate stations to choose which energy source would power their phones. While some people boldly went straight towards the fossil fuels that are harming the environment, others went back and guiltily made the switch to a cleaner energy source.
Just as people have begun to question how their food got from farm (or factory) to table, 'Power Behind the Plug' from NRG is asking people to be equally as inquisitive with how energy is delivered to them.
