RE: Can solar panels on a moving object have high efficiency?

in STEMGeeks14 days ago

Here in South Africa, there are already vehicles that run on batteries with the solar panels on the roof (not expressly solar vehicles, but solar-backed). They're three-wheeled open vehicles, more like a motorcycle crossed with a wagon. They're quite popular in my town and seem to be working very well. I'm in the process of saving up to buy one for myself. They do not go very fast, which is fine, at a top speed of 60km/h. They aren't good for long trips but for travelling through towns, to quickly go to the store or work, they're quite handy to have. One of my neighbours has one he uses all the time. I believe they're a Chinese-made brand, but I'm not sure.
