Is it possible to set up solar charging Posts along the roadsides , one long Pole and 6*6 ft solar panel not sure how much electricity it is able to produce to charge cars.
What are you asking? like if one pole had some solar on it, it could charge a car all by itself? No, it could act as a small portion of the car's overall charge but that pole needs to be grid-tied.
6x6' square solar pv, even for the highest efficiency, is between 500W and 1000W of power on the best sun day. Cloudy day, 1/4 the output.
You need a lot of solar modules to produce a little bit of energy. You know the solar SC stations that Tesla talks about installing? They are also grid-tied.
Now, do enough solar distributed everywhere (in NJ, they put up one solar panel on many thousands of telephone poles across the whole state) - or if you have 100,000 homes with 4KW grid-tied on their roofs, that creates a more distributed solar generation grid-supplement.
A company by the name of Envision is doing just that with their portable solar-charging-posts, however the challenge is being able to store enough energy in order for it to be meaningful. A fully charged solar-unit would only fill, at max, 20% of the Model s 85 battery capacity.
Your site appears confused. Elon has "finalized the route", not done the trip.
thanks it was just an idea, may be some future solar panel technology will improve the 20% to a higher count.
Even with 20 % , its better than having nothing at all, to drive till the next super charging station. If ever the car's charge got depleted before reaching its destination.
Or a foldable solar panel sheet under the Car's boot for use in emergency in case.
No, it's not better than a slightly bigger battery. Far more unreliable and expensive. The Fisker's trivial few hundred watts cost about $5K, e.g. That's about 20+kWh worth of Tesla battery!
