Solar power: plug in at home

July 22, 2010 § Leave a comment

Here’s an all-in solar electricity solution to recharge your electric car: the SunPod. San Jose-based SunPods Inc. is launching its ready-to-go package at a trade show in California this week; it describes the EV Plug-N-Go platform as “the first factory built-to-order, ship-to-site, ready to power up on delivery, solar-powered electric vehicle charging station.” The banks of photovoltaic panels can be quickly connected up to the grid and battery storage, and excess energy could be sold to a local supplier. Not a product for terrace-dwelling Brits, however: it looks as if you’d need a huge driveway to accommodate the thing, quite apart from a good supply of sunshine.
