Now That's A Smart Way To Use The Sun

Introducing The iSolar Carport

 

The iSolar carports are being launched with BMW”s new i8 plug-in hybrid vehicle in Los Angeles. Its roof is made up entirely of solar panels, while the structure is made of bamboo.

 

The excess energy the panels create will be sent into the home when the car is in use or fully charged. Sounds amazing doesn’t it? There is a small design flaw though. The solar panels sit flat on the roof instead of being oriented to the south or north to capture the most of the sun’s energy. Hey, we can't have it all I guess..Still a great start!
