Solar-powered electric vehicle top prize at Solar Power 2006

Solar Power 2006, the nation's largest solar energy conference, just wrapped up in northern California with a visit by Gov. Schwarzenegger. More than 9,000 people registered or dropped by to view the exhibits. Highlighting the closing activities was the giveaway of a solar-paneled NEV called the Sunray. Manufactured by Cruise Car, the Sunray can go about 22mph and has a range of 65 miles, according to the distributor. Cost is $7,000 before federal tax credits. The company also has traditional carts and is planning a faster solar-paneled NEV.
