Cooperate Electric Cooperative, a new company that sells electric power to households in Arizona, has made a splash with its new $7,500 solar-powered electric vehicle.
The Cooperate Solar Cooperative, which debuted at the International CES trade show in Las Vegas last month, is designed to make solar power cheaper and easier to access in rural areas, according to co-founder and CEO Jack Smith.
Cooperate has a goal of making solar energy more widely available in rural communities, said Smith.
The solar-solar-powered vehicle, which is available for $7500, can be rented out by the owner or leased to others who want to install solar panels on their own homes.
Smith said the cooperative’s customers pay nothing to install a solar panel.
Cooperates electric vehicle is more than a solar-generated battery: It is an environmentally friendly and environmentally-friendly car that can be driven around town and can be used as a carpool or a public transit car, Smith said.
The Cooperate solar-driven electric vehicle that can tow to a nearby house for a solar ride.
For now, Cooperates solar-electric car can only tow a maximum of four vehicles, but the company plans to expand to include a more diverse set of vehicles.
Smith said he was inspired to start Cooperates electric car after watching a documentary about electric cars and saw how many of them were on the road and not used.
“I knew I wanted to be a part of that because I’m passionate about clean energy,” Smith said, adding that he was able to convince his family and friends to sign up.
As Cooperates growth is growing, Smith plans to create more solar-based electric cars that will be more affordable and easier for people to use, but will still provide a clean alternative to conventional cars.
He also wants to make it easier for businesses to use solar energy to make their own electricity.
In order to make Cooperates Solar Cooperative’s cars more environmentally friendly, Smith and co-founders Adam and Rebecca Schleicher will be installing solar panels at their homes.
They have already installed panels at Smith’s home, which has been converted into an EV-toting home.
When Cooperates first announced plans to build an EV car, its founder said that the goal was to make EVs more affordable, and the company has made great progress on that goal, according the company’s blog.
Since then, the solar-powered electric vehicle has become a favorite of local and national celebrities, including actor and singer Adam Levine, who purchased one in 2015.
The first EV cars launched in Nevada in 2017.
Schleichers said that she has never owned a solar powered vehicle before, but she has used Cooperates car for the past two years.
The car’s battery can charge overnight and can easily be stored on a rooftop, she said.
