Solar energy is on the move as one Exeter-based company has proven by creating a van with solar panels.

Designed and put together by SunGift Energy, the high-tech solar van – emblazoned with PV panels – has been travelling across the Westcountry showing that generating renewable electricity is not just for houses and fields.

The solar van has been visiting shows and events demonstrating to the public that it is possible for solar PV to provide 100 per cent renewable energy to almost any location within minutes of arriving.

Fitted with nine solar PV panels, the van has much less ‘roof space’ than most houses, yet it is capable of generating up to 20 kWh of electricity per day — that’s enough electricity to power the average small house.
Community groups, organisations or businesses that are interested in having the solar van along at their event (and generating free energy that can be used for a variety of purposes) can contact Gary Cook at SunGift Energy for more information — 01392 213 912.
