Solar-powered car charging station in Brooklyn
Renewable energy company Beautiful Earth Group has unveiled a containerized solar-powered charging station for electric vehicles (EVs) at a site in Red Hook, Brooklyn. The station is built from recycled shipping containers and is topped with an array of 235-watt photovoltaic panels, which reach a total capacity of almost 6 kW. A three-hour charge in the station provides an EV with a range of approximately 100 miles. The new solar charging station is believed to be the first of its kind in New York City.
