THE STORY:

Garrett Fitzgerald and Rob van Haaren are two doctoral students at the School of Engineering and Applied Science at Columbia University. In an epic trip across the country, planned for the Summer of 2012, we will show the public what is possible with the synergy between solar energy and electric vehicles.
In order to educate the public about flexible solar panels and electric vehicles, we came up with the idea to do a promo-tour across the US, using only solar energy. We have designed a trailer that can hold 7 kWp of flexible solar panels and batteries for extra juice. As the flexible panels charge the batteries during the day, we will explain people about the technologies we use. In the evening, we roll up the panels and drive off to the next stop. Since we need to charge the batteries during the day, we can use this time to give presentations and promote these new technologies.
A trip like this has never been done before. We therefore expect significant media attention, which will benefit our sponsors! We provide our main contributors with space on our trailers to display their logo's.
