Considering that vending machines are popping up all over the place and recognizing the booming trend to go green, it was only a matter of time before the first solar-powered vending machines were designed. The solar-powered machine installed at a US golf course is the first of its kind and dispenses everything from golf balls to cool drinks.

Implications - Going solar is a great way to go green and help out the environment. A solar-powered vending machine can be placed anywhere where there is natural light while non-solar machines have to be placed near an electrical outlet. This means that you could have a solar-powered vending machine out in the middle of the golf course!
