Dell's Solar Grove

Parking lots are vast, often hot and ugly. Envision Solar has a new vision for the parking lot and the latest one they have transformed is at Dell's headquarters in Round Rock, Texas. Dell has installed an Envision "Solar Grove". The Solar Grove provides shade for 56 parking spaces while providing renewable energy.

The installation will generate 130,000 kWh annually.

The project includes more than just solar technology though. It also includes electric vehicle charging stations from Coulomb Technologies. When plug-in cars like the Nissan Leaf or the Chevy Volt park here, they'll be drivin' on sunshine.
