USA: Jacksonville police cars charging on solar power

The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office is letting the sun shine in, and some of its officers are getting a charge out of it.

Solar charging panels on some police cars allow officers to take advantage of sun power.

The average police car drains two 12-volt batteries a year due to all of the electronics and lights it has to operate. The solar panels help save gas too, said Assistant Chief John Lamb, in charge of the Sheriff’s Office’s logistics and general support division.

“We wanted to look for alternatives to combat the problems and solar is free,” Lamb said.
