Solar Parking Lots Charge Electric Bicycles

SANYO Electric Co., Ltd. has opened two “Solar Parking Lots” that use solar panels to charge electric hybrid bicycles powered by Sanyo’s eneloop lithium-ion batteries.

The solar powered parking lots are located in Tokyo’s Setagaya ward west of downtown Tokyo. The lots are completely independent and clean systems that eliminate the use of fossil fuels. The power generated from the solar panels installed on the roof is used to charge up to 100 bicycles as well as illuminate the parking lot lights.
