Solar-Powered Parking Spots
The EV ARC Turns Parking Spaces into Electric Car Chargers

By: Michael Hines (Superstar) Oct 17, 13

Getting folks to drive electric cars would be a much easier sell if every parking lot was equipped with the EV ARC. The EV Arc (Electric Vehicle Autonomous Renewable Charger) is a solar-powered car charger designed to fit into a traditional parking space. It requires no extra infrastructure to function and is powered entirely by the sun!

The EV ARC can produce enough electricity to fully charge one electric car a day. It is portable and can be set up in about five minutes. The parking spot has rooftop solar panels that provide shade in addition to battery juice. American drivers have been hesitant to adopt EVs because of range fears and because public chargers are few and far between. The EV ARC could very well sway public opinion if it were to be installed in parking lots across the U.S.
