US Navy launches its first solar-powered EV charging station

Green Car Congress

Naval Support Activity (NSA) Mid-South officially welcomed into service the US Navy’s first solar-powered electric car charging station. The carport will enable NSA Mid-South to recharge its current fleet of 17 electric vehicles with renewable electricity in approximately four hours, while reducing demand on the commercial power grid. Since then, the carport has successfully generated enough electricity to power more than 60 typical homes for a day.
