Frequently Asked  Questions:
How does the Solar Charging Station make electricity from the sun?
The solar panel contains photovoltaic cells that capture photons from the sun. The photon energy from light frees electrons from atoms inside the photovoltaic cells causing an imbalance of change between top and bottom surfaces. Like the negative and positive terminals of a battery, a voltage potential is capture in a circuit to form electricity.
How much electricity will the Solar Charging Station generate?  
Our 8 stall solar canopy on average generate 32,00 kwh per year. This is enough electricity to charge the Chevrolet volt 4,500 times a year, which is equivalent to 12 cars receiving a full charge a day
