Australian Solar Bus Keeps Rolling After 5 Years


"Tindo" which is Aborigineze  for "Sun" is the name for this transportation innovation. The bus has been carrying tourists through Australia's 5th largest city, Adelaide. Each night the maintenance team recharges the sodium-nickel batteries using the power generated by the solar panels mounted on the bus station. The bus can travel 125 miles before a recharge is needed. It also uses the same kind or brake electric generation system used on cars like a Toyota Prius. You apply the brakes and it generates electricity. This helps is extent its travel time. No pollution, no carbon foot print, no fuel bills. If every large city in the USA had a bus like this, think of the environmental impact and reduction in noise pollution. Read more at: www.adelaidecitycouncil.com
