Solar charging station for EVs is brand spanking old
This is an excellent demonstration of using resources to their full efficiency. Imagine having a carport similar to this at a suburban apartment complex. When the residents are not charging their vehicles (whether they be plug-in hybrids or full EVs), excess solar power is sent to the building's grid, or an emergency backup battery system, like a U.P.S. for an entire building. It could not be cleaner toward the environment, and it's free, depending on how you look at it. Your transportation costs are now part of your electric bill, which is supplemented by a free, unlimited energy source. As soon as some popular, marketable electric cars are released to the consumer, these innovations will become even more viable. Too bad it's taking so long for the rest of the world catch on to what the Santa Monica Civic Center has had for years.
More details to come.
