While solar panels are quickly becoming a popular solution to renewable energy in people’s homes they have also been developed for fun modes of transportation. Engineers have developed electric scooters equipped with a solar panel on the riding platform making it an emission-free transportation alternative for adults.
These solar scooters are built to hold up to 350 lbs and can go 15 miles per hour in only a few seconds. To charge this type of scooter battery all you need to do is park it in the sun for a few hours so that the solar panel can collect energy from the sunlight.
It is always beneficial to the environment to make new types of solar powered items that anyone can use. The only thing that makes me wonder about these kinds of scooter products is how much they cost. Solar panels can be a bit expensive and any normal scooter that you buy I believe would not necessarily contribute a lot to carbon emissions. They could be a lot of fun to use though and it will be a good way for people to get involved in environmental causes like reducing their carbon footprint.
