Idaho’s First Solar Powered Public Level 2 E.V. Charging Station

Interesting facts about this charging station:

1. It’s powered by solar energy. There are three trees in front of the solar panels. The installers positioned the solar panels carefully so that there are no shades of the trees on the panels.  (During summertime, the sun appears to be very high in the sky, so shades are too short to reach the panels; in the wintertime, the sun is low but the trees are deciduous so the effects of shades are small). But one thing they forgot about was the electric pole! See the shade of that.

2. It is a public charging station, so anybody can come and charge their electric vehicles.

3. It is a level 2 charging station. There are 3 levels of charging stations, and they differ in the speed of charging and other attributes.
