|Look at it! Covered in smeary fingerprints already!|
You can read more about the installation here.

There is a new word in the French language - badger, to badge, describing the action of waving an object, such as a name badge, across a reader, to let you do something, such as to allow you to enter a room if you have the required level of security. Here you badge your SIEIL membership card over the little fan-shaped doodad at the top and the borne releases the socket so you can plug in.
|Thus rendering those smelly polluting objects behind it redundant!|
Now all we need is some users.
Note 1: if you have an electric cyclomoteur, don't plug it in here, it will probably blow up. Likewise your cordless drill.
Note 2: The borne was actually installed on Monday, not yesterday, which was Tuesday...
