It's not quite an electric Lamborghini, but the Italian automobile industry will get a boost from advanced energy. SunPower, the San Jose-based solar company, has partnered with Italian design and manufacturing firm to deliver pre-fab and individual car ports with solar panels. The car port will be able to generate up to 10.5 kilowatts of power. CTBR reports:
SunPower regions president Howard Wenger said the company is currently designing and installing commercial solar carport systems at schools and businesses across North America. "Partnering with Giulio Barbieri will enable SunPower to offer the same high efficiency, high reliability solar panels to homeowners wanting to power their homes with solar, but have constrained rooftops," Wenger said.
