Parking meters accross North America and Europe are making the switch to solar in order to add credit card and bank card payment options. In so doing we are seeing the large scale development of autonomous solar powered systems that demonstrate the power of this type of technology.
Solar power is now in a position to start transforming all areas of our electric infrastructure. Parking meters everywhere are gaining advanced computer, wireless telephone, and advanced card payment options without needing to be wired to the conventional electrical or phone systems. If these parking meters are doing it, why not your car, your house, lighting systems for roads, traffic lights and more. Wait one minute. This is actually happening. Have you noticed how much of the emergency lighting for road construction now sports an array of solar panels?
