Dell’s ‘Solar’ Parking Lot recharges plug-in cars

dell's solar parking lotDell is one company that is at least trying to tackle the climate problem in whatever capacity they can. For example, here’s what I feel is a great idea: solar cell-lined shaded parking structures.

These ‘trees’ not only shade cars from the sun, but also collect and can power electrical outlets in the column, so you can plug in your electric car during the day.

Built by Envision Solar, hopefully we’ll see many more of these in company parking lots across the world.

  1. Maybe if we install enough solar panels it will tell the sun to quit shining so bright and hot and that will solve the "climate problem". Of course, we could always camp out around the Himalyan glaciers to stay cool until they melt. Oh wait…
