Like solar-powered homes, solar cars harness energy from the sun by converting it into electricity. This electricity fuels the battery that runs the car.


The battery runs the car's motor that enables the car to move. The solar cars and 100% electric, meaning they are generating zero emission, unlike gas-powered and hybrid fleets.

Solar cars use photovoltaic cells to convert sunlight into energy. Photovoltaic cells are the components in solar panels that convert the sun's energy to electricity. They're made up of semiconductors, usually silicon, that absorb the light.
