An intro to solar-charged driving

Solar-charged driving has been around for awhile. That’s not surprising, given that all it really takes is solar panels somewhere producing electricity and a battery powered vehicle, whose batteries are charged by electricity produced by the sun. Imagine a tiny, remote controlled, battery-powered car and a tiny solar panel with a tiny inverter. Plug your remote-controlled car into the solar-recharger and, voila, in a little while you’re running it on the sun. It’s that easy — and at a general level (meaning above the level of the engineering of a car, batteries themselves, etc.) — that simple. In the articles in the section, we give you the basic information that you need to get started.
