Solar E-bike Charging Station
In an effort to promote green transportation and sustainability on campus the technology education program would like to build a solar powered charging station for e-bikes and other forms of electric personal transport. This e-bike charging station will be a secure place for students and staff to lock their bike and charge it with clean solar energy while they are in class. E-bikes open commuting to those who may live further from campus than they would normally be comfortable riding a traditional bike, or to those who wish to lighten their impact on the environment and leave the car at home. The solar charging station will give technology education majors a real world system to maintain, that incorporates all of the elements of off-grid solar power.
