Charger uses only solar power

EVs certainly pollute less and the tailpipe than traditional gasoline powered vehicles. However, EV's do produce pollution indirectly thanks the fact that in the United States many electricity plants still burn fuels that pollute such as coal to produce electricity. Ford has plans to offer charging system to go along with its Focus EV that is carbon free and uses green solar power.

The charger would be priced at $13,800, but cost consumers somewhere between $6000 and $10,000 after federal and local incentives. The charger would be able to generate enough electricity each year to drive a Focus EV 12,000 miles yearly even in cloudy areas.
