Tesla Solar Tracker III's
These 12V Tesla Solar Tracker III's are specifically designed for offline solar power systems. They are fully integrated solar charge controllers.Most charge controller and solar panel systems cannot even start charging the battery banks until there is direct bright sunlight on the solar panels.t is common for these Tesla Solar Tracker III's to start charging as soon as the sun comes up until the sun sets. Marginal light is the minimum requirement - so you can have battery charging all day long even under cloudy skies!

John Howe's Solar Car and Tractor
Solarcarandtractor.com is about exploring the promise and limitations of a solar electric future for supplying two huge energy requirements, transportation and agriculture, now provided for almost entirely by oil and all forms of petrofuel derivatives. Energy, in all its forms, supports all life on Earth. Except for nuclear, tidal, and geothermal, our primary energy source has been, and will always be, from incoming solar radiation. Will this be enough to survive the post-fossil fuel age?

You can design and build a car that makes you happy when you drive and makes you smile when you look at it. We are offering plans and assemblies so you can custom design and build your own car which can be driven on roads with a speed limit of less than 35 MPH (in states that have a low speed vehicle law). The car is recharged from the sun or can be plugged in. It has a top speed of 25 MPH and a range of 30 miles. It is street legal: windshield wiper, disc brakes, seat belts, turn signals and lights. It can also be use to travel around in campgrounds and gated communities.
