Technology: We are joining the solar energy generation with sustainable mobility; our objective is to move electric cars with solar energy. We have a Utility Model (exclusive right granted for an invention) registered. Apart from joining PV energy with recharging electric vehicles, our carport also offers higher levels of safety, security and energy production than other similar solutions, due to our design.
