Company is modding street lights into electric vehicle chargers

Ubitricity is a nifty little company that modifies existing electric street lamps into charging stations for electric cars.

Via Fully Charged:

The simple and very commonplace lamp post will soon become a ubiquitous charge point for electric cars. They charge at about 5 kW, or 16 amps, not super fast but overnight charging is all most drivers need. Ubitricity is a German based company who've come up with a simple, cheap to install and well managed system for more people on more streets to adopt electric cars.
