The Solar Grove Provides Energy for Dell Headquarters and Shade for Visitors

Whenever I try to find the perfect parking spot, I look for shade (I abhor entering oven cars); now, after stumbling upon this Solar Grove, I'll have to add energy-producing spots as a second necessity. Although, sadly, I would have to drive Dell Computer’s corporate headquarters in Texas for that.

Solar Grove, built by Envision Solar, combines these two parking bonuses by simply erecting the solar panels you see in these photos. Interestingly, they not only generate energy for the facility, they also charge electric cars.

How awesome would it be once we’re able to have our own personal Solar Grove at home?
