sunE - Solar electric shuttle service

sunE is an integrated solar electric shuttle service for low speed last-mile passenger transportation.

The shuttle service employs 3 and 4-wheel low speed electric vehicles (LSEVs), that replace the polluting internal combustion engine (ICE) tricycles and public utility vehicles (PUV) and jeepneys that presently dominate the streets. The solution is built around a complete transportation and energy management system, that includes self-generated energy to drive the LSEVs, and a business system delivered through a proprietary cloud-based management system. sunE's system is an integrated business unit that generates its own power from solar panels, and turns the sun’s energy into cash in 24 hours. Its cloud-based digital payment technology is a key feature of this system, and it helps to address some of the financing challenges associated with any type of vehicle.
