CHICAGO -- Carbon Day Automotive has installed the first solar-powered electric vehicle charging station in the City of Chicago. The Solar Plug-In Station(TM) will be used by the City of Chicago Department of Fleet Management to power the city's electric cars with energy from the sun.

Carbon Day Automotive's Solar Plug-In Station(TM), built by Carbon Day Construction, was designed by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture. Wanxiang America Corporation manufactured the solar panels that form a tree-like canopy built by Residential Steel. Pure Energy, LLC, Northbrook installed the sculpted piece and interfaced it with the concealed underground battery pack enhanced to store solar energy. ALL CELL Technologies, a thermal management and power pack solutions manufacturer, designed the battery pack.
