D*mn it, why didn't I think of that?!?

Posted by Bushel Basket in , ,

On Metaefficent, there's a report about a solar startup company called Envision Solar that's developing solar canopies for mall parking lots. It is a genius idea, and I wish I'd thought of it. Parking lots are essentially wastelands, environmentally speaking, and this system seems to have the potential to address many of the issues of parking lots: heat island effect, light pollution, and collection of runoff water.

I applaud Envision Solar for their unique thinking. While the business speak words of "innovation" and "creativity" are often diluted, this is a unique effort to address multiple environmental issues at the same time. Now, if they'd only add on recharging ports for electric cars......
