It’s clear. The newest trend in hybrid car technology is solar. With the price of energy always increasing, solar energy offers a way to power your car without buying gas or increasing your monthly utility bill.
At the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas last week, Ford debuted their newest concept car, the C-MAX Energi plug-in hybrid. The first car of its kind, the C-Max Solar Energi Concept has 1.5 square meters of photovoltaic cells with a 300 to 350 watt capacity located on its roof that can charge the vehicle's battery.
However, these panels alone do not generate enough energy to power a car for an entire day. In order to amplify the amount of solar energy harvested, Ford has also added a canopy with a solar concentrator lens that acts like a magnifying glass that boost the impact of the sunlight by a factor of eight to charge the vehicle more efficiently.
While it may be years until this vehicle is available to the public, it is possible to utilize solar energy to charge your hybrid vehicle today with PluggedSolar’s unique solar electrical technology. PluggedSolar uses a breakthrough technology to allow for solar panels to be simply plugged directly into a household’s electrical socket.
The Plugged Solar Kit is designed as a ‘do it yourself (DIY)’ installation. It cuts the cost of solar energy in half and consequently makes solar electricity cheaper than what we get from the conventional environmentally damaging electricity. PluggedSolar produces approximately 3000 kWh of electricity every year, enough to power an electric car for 10,000 miles. Perfect for driving in cities and towns, PluggedSolar technology combined with hybrid vehicle technology is able to effectively cut your carbon-based energy consumption down to zero preserving the environment as well as consumers’ pocket books.
