PLUG IN AT SOLAR STATIONS


Doesn't it make sense to create a multi-layered infrastructure of 'refueling' stations for hybrids, bio-diesel, hydrogen and electric vehicles? If electricity were created though solar panels, these sustainable stations could power us along the ribbons of highway throughout the US.

The picture above is on the Amtrak station in Trenton, New Jersey. Think of the acres of pavement that could become shaded parking with roofs of solar panels. The Tallahassee airport could become a solar station and when returning from a trip on the dirigible, the car would be charged and ready to go.

According to Friends of the Earth,
one station with ten charging spaces could generate 30,000 kWh annually, powering approximately 120,000 miles of zero-emissions electric driving per year or feeding the grid with clean power. More pictures and information on considering the possibilities of solar stations at their site.
