How to build a Solar Powered Trike

The purpose of this project is to build a vehicle that:

-Provides free, ‘green’ transportation for short distances (<10 miles), thus it must never
plug into a wall socket, or emit any pollutants.

-Charges while at work

-Is cheap, simple, and low maintenance.

-Draws attention to the practical application of green energies, and promotes Fossil Fuel alternatives.

-Reduces excess automobile wear and pollution from cold driving / short, in town trips.

-This is a is a project for Dr. Reza Toosi’s ‘Energy and the Environment, a global perspective’ class at California State University, Long Beach. We look at the sources, technologies, and impacts of energy on our environment.Schwinn Meridian Adult 26-Inch 3-Wheel Bike
