Please note that this website is UNDER CONSTRUCTION
I am also working on an inexpensive, production electric car. Please find it at the link below.
This site is dedicated to chronicling the research, development and testing results of building the first solar thermal powered car.
The menus can help you navigate how much information you want to receive. If you only want a quick overview, please check out the design overview page. If, after that, you would like more information, there are links for more specifics on how each part functions, past and current tests, as well as explanations for why other methods were ruled out.
If you are looking for engineering data on the car click on design specifications.
If you want to know more about why we are building this car please visit our Mission page.
It is essential to realize this project is not being developed for commercial use. There is no intention to sell or market a solar thermal car, this is a proof of concept. It is proof that it is possible to use low-cost or recycled materials to travel in a way that does not rely on fossil fuels or grid electricity.
This project began with a desire to teach people how to build their own affordable power source, so in keeping with that goal, this site also contains tutorials on how to build your own units for your house. Comments are enabled on all sections, and there is also a forum where you can discuss doubts or concerns, but even more importantly, suggestions. If you have questions, please check out our FAQ page or contact us.
Thank you for visiting, and please, let us know what you think!
