Ford To Offer Special Carbon-Free Solar Charger for EVs

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.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
