With the anticipation of the Focus Electric, and four other models which are expected to be released in 19 markets next year, Ford and SunPower have joined forces to offer an industry first solar powered charging station for their electric vehicles.
Under the “Drive green for life” campaign, owners of a Ford Focus Electric can reduce their costs by generating energy from the world’s most powerful solar modules made by SunPower.
The 2.5kW SunPower system is estimated to produce 3,000kWh of annual electricity, or enough to accommodate customers who drive about 1,000 miles per month.
The system is expected to cost less than $10,000, before taxes and after federal tax credits.
With well over 50 major print media hits within a day of the announcement, the response is overwhelming. SunPower and Ford are a match to be reckoned with!
