Okay, so the video above is a bit PR-ie (as in public relations-ie). But it's still worth a look if you're into chronicling and making note of the ever growing number of solar EV charging canopy stations in the United States, including more than a few in highly visible and public places such as where the one highlighted in this YouTube video is: The San Diego Zoo.
By our count -- and we know we do not have all of the solar EV charging canopies/solar-powered EV charging stations in the U.S. on our map -- there are several more of these stations in equally public places.
Among them: FedEx Field, the home of the Washington Redskins (Maryland), Mitsubishi Motors North American headquarters (California), Sierra Nevada Brewing Company (California), National Renewable Energy Lab (Colorado), University of Iowa, New York Institute of Technology, Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, Hershey's Chocolate Park (Pennsylvania), Dell Computers Headquarters (Texas), and multiple General Motors plants and dealerships throughout the U.S. And, with GM, which is planning to erect well over 100 hundred solar EV canopies at GM dealerships, and Tesla, which is working on building out its nationwide Supercharger network, both putting solar EV charging stations up at a good clip, they're only going to become more and more visible.
