The New Chevy Volt electric car driven by Nachman Norwood & Parrott’s (NNP) partner, Gary Davis, through downtown Greenville recently is not just powered by normal electricity, but is also powered by electricity generated by the solar panels installed by the company over the roof of his downtown office.
The Chevy Volt incorporates a lithium-ion battery power pack and a gas-generator that is kept aboard the car. The car is designed to run around 375 miles by utilizing a single charge. The battery installed in the car can be charged through any 120V household type of outlet. NNP has taken pains to install a solar power setup over the roof of the building to produce enough power for charging the electric car as well as to support the energy requirement of the office thus reducing the carbon discharges of the company as well as its partner.
The Electric Vehicle (EV) power charging facility at the office was performed by a local solar panel vending company in association with another company engaged in charging electronic vehicles. The solar powered EV power station is the first of its kind installed by the companies in the state.
