In our endless EV research, somehow we come across a site called Highsnobiety, which presents the solar charging station POINT.ONE designed by eco-firm EIGHT to match the uniqueness of the BMW i3 and i8.

The quick charger itself seems pretty normal, like all other ABBs. However, the shed (or carport) looks like a wing illuminated by LEDs.

The POINT.ONE probably doubles the cost of building a charging point, so we do not expect to see more of these ine parking lots. However, it sure does look mighty cool.

Notewothy is that BMW a few months ago unveiled its own concept of solar carport.

    Looks a lot underpowered, the BMW option has enough generation to make a difference, this thing is just a sculpture that probably generates enough to power only to power the lights and TV set.

    Might as well make it a car port and put walls on it. That way your car is better protected from the elements.

    Style over substance

      we’re overdue for a period of style over substance – something to do with solar activity..
