USA: Electric cars get solar boost in Alpharetta

FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — The electric car means different things to different people. For some, it’s cutting off foreign oil dependency; others see it as an environmental duty to cut emissions. Businesses see it as a way to cut costs and boost the bottom line.

No matter what the reasoning for getting an electric car, the number of places one can find a free outlet has just increased. At the Alpharetta-based Solar Energy USA in south Forsyth County, electric vehicles or plug-in hybrids are being welcomed to charge up.

The cost to Solar Energy: The sun.

“We have 155 solar panels and because we overproduce, we provide power to the charging station that charges these vehicles,” said Perry Bell, Solar Energy USA president.

On Dec. 13, the solar installation firm invited local electric car owners to test out the system and to discuss how they will be able to power their electric cars with a solar-powered car charging station at 7565 Industrial Court.
