The first solar power charging station, with 18 charger lines, has been built and put into use in Longgang, Shenzhen. It can provide energy for 18 vehicles.

Equipped with power-storage system and environmentally friendly charging system, the garage of the station provides the lighting and meets the charging needs of 18 electric vehicles. It’s a good way to make full use of solar energy as a source of power supply. The roof, a basic part of the station, is a power generation system and a shelter against strong wind and heavy rain.

Electric vehicles cannot be charged instantly, but the process won’t take long. It takes 30 minutes to charge an electric car due to its electric storage function. A fully charged car can run about 100 kilometers, and the cost is only one-fifth of fuel cars.
