Using the sun to charge your vehicle.
Over the past 4-5 years I have seen many departments try to implement solar charging on their vehicles to help offset the parasitic draw caused by computers, phone and flashlight chargers, radios and other auxiliary components. This draw is a major issue when you look at the fleet costs associated with replacement batteries, alternators and other charging system components. Heavily used police, fire and public works vehicles never have a chance to fully recharge so we need to look for alternatives to offset this draw and thus lessen the overall effects on the vehicles systems.
