Kyocera Announces “Solar Grove” Power for Parking Lots

kyocera_solar.jpgWith the amount of solar innovation happening around the world these days, I think we are getting very close to the tipping point of cost effectiveness and real mass production. Anyway, here’s another fantastic installation by Kyocera in San Diego.
The idea – take a surface parking lot and put solar panels all over it. In the process, you not only get solar energy, you give shade to people’s cars, improve the asthetics of the area, and potentially reduce the heat island effect of the lot.
Via Grist and Curt Rosengren.
