A friend of mine is in the process of buying an M3 here in the Bay Area. He will be parking outside under trees and wants to protect it from tree droppings by putting some kind of 'roof' over it. He is also wondering if he can find such an easy structure that has solar panels on top. Here is a quote from him: "What I would love is a lightweight solar carport that we could install in our driveway, with enough solar panels to recharge the car. I know this is probably still a pipe dream, but I just thought I would ask, because that would be the right thing to do. Also, there are tons of super-cheap carport tents, but they are all made with polyethylene (PE) and we are trying to stop buying plastic products. What's a boy to do to stay green in this day and age? "
Any advice is appreciated!
