Racing Vehicles on 100% Solar Energy from the vehicle

Racing Vehicles on 100% Solar Energy from the vehicle Jul 01, 2018 Tweet Running a vehicle on only self contained Solar Energy. Starting in Omaha and going over huge mountains to Bend Oregon. Is that possible? What can we all learn? American Solar Challenge July 2018 Why in the EV World would you want to run a vehicle on only Solar Energy from a small array on the vehicle ? As I have written many times it’s best to have the Solar PV in an area with full Sun and no shade. It should face South in North American so it makes the most each day. It should also be GRID tied for times when you make too much and don’t have any place to store it. Yet there are great things we can learn from a 100% Solar vehicle. It shows how much energy production you can make for a vehicle and how fast they can go. The engineering and building materials can teach us how to make electric vehicles. T...
