Solar EV charging station designed to power with style
At Greenbuild 2014, Lumos Solar, a Boulder, Colorado based design-centric solar company, introduced the new SmartPark Solar EV Charging Station, featuring the new GSX Glass-Glass Frameless Module System.
"SmartPark will revolutionize how solar and EV charging are integrated," said Scott Franklin, president and CEO.

Franklin says solar and EV charging is a natural fit. "Electric vehicle adoption is growing exponentially and SmartPark structures are ready to provide unlimited, renewable fuel where they are being used," he said. "The cantilevered SmartPark structures are pre-engineered, prefabricated and designed to be easily deployable in residential, commercial and institutional settings. SmartParks’ clean, modern design will be a great addition to any landscape while the super functional canopy provides clean energy and weatherproof shade and shelter."
“Fueling our vehicles with clean, unlimited renewable energy, makes sense financially, environmentally and socially,” Franklin added.
