A solar module optimized for low-speed electric vehicles, extending their range and battery life
CAPSolar designs and builds a solar-powered module optimized for road vehicle use, starting with low-speed electric vehicles - LSEVs.
These small vehicles pose a lot of problems for the environment and to the companies that possess them. Most of them are charged with electricity that has been harvested using non-renewable sources, such as coal and natural gases in the U.S. On top of that, their batteries require regular maintenance due to their short lifetime. This costs a lot of money to the companies and costs a lot to the environment in terms of CO2 emissions. To remedy these problems CAPSolar uses the energy from the sun, which is 100% free and clean, to power the batteries of these vehicles. By doing so we are able to increase the range of these vehicles by about 25% and the life of its batteries by 1 to 3 years. These advantages allow the companies to use their vehicles for longer and spend less money on maintenance, but most importantly, greatly reduce their CO2 footprint.
CAPSolar develops a first-of-its-kind solar module designed exclusively for Low Speed Electric Vehicles.View company profile
