FREE Solar Electric Vehicles! [PICS]

December 30th, 2009 by  

There are large steps and small steps that can be made to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions and other pollution. I think these solar electric vehicles are something in between, but definitely something to start using!

The Solar Electric Vehicle Company creates innovative electric shuttles (i.e. large golf carts) for universities, resorts, stadiums, governments, shopping malls, airports, arenas, medical centers, etc. that combine electric vehicle (EV) technology with solar power technology. Looks like a good combination.

Not only that, but these vehicles are FREE!


As The Solar Electric Vehicle Company states, “Founded on the principles of national and community involvement, corporate responsibility, and most importantly, environmental responsibility, The Solar Electric Vehicle Company is dedicated to the Greening of America. Using an innovative business strategy and partnering with corporations committed to combating climate change and dependence on foreign oil, The Solar Electric Vehicle Company provides clean and reliable solar-electric shuttles to communities and institutions cost free.”

If you can present the need, your community or organization or institution can get free environmentally friendly vehicles. The vehicles have two solar panels on top that charge six 8-volt batteries. This increases the vehicles’ range by 33%.

The great thing, too, is that the company offers different types of vehicles for your different needs (i.e. security vehicles, farmer’s market shuttles, handicapped accessible vehicles, etc.)

What more can someone want? A solar electric vehicle free of charge sounds good to me!
