Solar powered tuk-tuks coming to Bangkok
« on: September 19, 2013, 06:08:52 PM »
Former Thai Air Force officer Morakot Charnsomruad has invented an electric tuk-tuk, powered by a solar battery boosted by a solar panel on the vehicle’s roof.



Morakot has a workshop in Bangkok’s outer suburbs where he and his team create a variety of green vehicles, such as golf cars and resort transport.

Bangkok’s tuk-tuk drivers were less than impressed with the power of the solar vehicle, but the solar solution has the potential to reduce noise and pollution on Bangkok’s streets when it is fully developed.

The solar tuk-tuk will cost less than THB30 a day to keep operational, reported Energy Business News.

I have been trying to buy a solar sign for two years without success. Thai and foreign companies just don't seem to want small projects, they are all going for the billion $ hit.

I will have to try and contact this fellow. Any ideas?

The big electrical shop on the ground floor of IT Plaza sells solar panels.
