Dear all ,
I would like to suggest the following, please forgive me if someone else already suggested , i might have missed it .
The Photovoltaic market is increasing really slowly which means that improvements in the technology used in PV is also taking place in a slow pace .
If you check online there are 5 different materials used in PV (Photovoltaic) Panels and various ways to install them ..
One of them is the thin film strip PV application ...
This material is a thin layer of PV used in windows/buildings external walls etc with a really low glare ratio and is combined with glass/plexi/plastic/vinyl etc .
Studies show this material now is more and more effective with bigger life cycle expectancy and so on ,
So my idea-question-suggestion is : if it is feasible why not integrate thin film strip PV on the outer top body of a Tesla Car embedded in a way to be ''good looking'' and efficient by connecting to the battery pack of the car and to actually charge the car while driving/parked outside under the sunlight ?
Some info for people that dont know what im talking about :
