Abstract

This documentary film will examine the potential that solar powered vehicles have to become a valid alternative to fossil fuel vehicles. It will begin by examining the history of the solar vehicle and how it has evolved from the first blueprints of the idea until now. The film will also describe possible applications for this technology, whether it be for everyday consumers (cars, trucks, etc.) or specialized equipment like tractors, cranes, and cargo vehicles. Along with these applications we will examine the reasons it has not become of greater utility in the United States along with the rest of the world. The film will delve into the changes needed in order to see a vast increase in the production and usage of solar powered vehicles in alternative to fossil fuels in the near as well as the distant future.
