"Solar Grove" parking lot
This seems like a seriously excellent idea to me:
San Diego, California -- Kyocera today announced that it will hold a public dedication for its first-ever Solar Grove(TM); an array of 25 "solar trees"(TM) that converts a 186-vehicle parking lot into a 235-kilowatt solar electric generating system.At the same time, the solar panels provide shade for the cars! In these dog days of summer, that seems very appealing. Somebody want to try this here in Chapel Hill? Of course, we have snow from time to time, which I guess is not a problem in San Diego...
