What a Cool idea!

solar-forest2To address the need of saving the environment, the use of an electric vehicle is rising as time goes by. With the increase use of EV, it simply means an increase demand to renewable energy. This concept made designer Neville Mars convinced to create the solar forest. The solar forest has trees that are composed of photovoltaic leaves, which is responsible of collection solar power. Each of the trees’ trunks has a power outlet available for use in order to charge up an electric vehicle. Aside from charging, the photovoltaic leave also provides shades to ever car and its users while charging.


Having grown up in South Africa where having blistered palms was part of the summer driving experience the idea that you can have renewable energy, and shade to park in is incredible. Anyone want to predict how long till this is a reality? My guess by 2020!
