Electric Vehicles Produce Their Own Energy
Navy Green Energy
With gas prices hovering around $2 a gallon and environmental concerns on the horizon, most people are looking for ways to cut back on energy and reduce fuel consumption. The Navy is no different.
Solar energy through the Navy's green energy initiative may be coming to the rescue, providing the power we need without some of the harmful and costly side effects of petroleum fuels.
Solar photovoltaic array panels are becoming increasingly popular and electric vehicles are becoming more of a reality and less like something you read about in science fiction novels.
Taking advantage of this technology is Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Hawaii. The solar panels there soak in the bountiful sun rays and make electricity for solar powered vehicles. It's easy, safe and cheap!
