Solar Charge-Port Relocation and Installation



In July of 2010 American Industrial Werks tackled a green project designed for recharging electric cars. A Solar Charge-Port as it's called was dismantled, relocated, and re-installed from Douglas Park to Northerly Island (formerly Meigs Field). The Solar Charge-Port is a solar-powered electric vehicle charging station. It has been stated that the station will have a 2.4 kW solar panel array and the potential for a 5.5 kWh underground battery pack. The Solar Charge-Port provides 100% clean energy production from the sun. The charging station has been integrated into the P.V. panels, integrated the battery storage component for "shady" days, and created enough structural flexibility to replace the panels as new technologies develop in the solar industry. Coulomb's Charge Point is a universal recharge station for cars such as the Chevy Volt and Toyota Prius, Segways or any rechargeable vehicle with a plug. Carbon Day has developed the Solar Charge-Port with Smith-Gill Architecture and Empact Construction Services to solve all concerns with taking additional energy from the grid.
