Solar Trees

Above you see The Solar Trees®, located in the Dell employee parking lot at their corporate headquarters in Texas, which are making a new and incredible step toward green power. Dell has completed the solar-powered parking lot ("solar grove") which will not only produce carbon-free energy for their building directly from the sun, but also equip the parking lot with the ability to power future electric/plug-in vehicles through their CleanCharge™ solar charging stations. These Solar Trees® will shade 50 parking spots at Dell and produce upward of 130kW of clean energy. Sometimes we do not have to eliminate a "destructive" behavior or even modify one, but think of ways in which we can be more efficient and environment friendly. Dell has done this and will most likely inspire many others to do similar.


  1. That is a pretty cool idea. I think they may be on to something.

  2. I think that is so cool. Solar energy is pretty effective and I hope we use more efficient energy in the future. This picture is great because it really gives a great image of what is still to come.

  3. having those solar trees there work two-fold they give shade to the cars and also conserve and produce energy.
