One for the Sun
In his solar vehicle called the Xof1, which stands for "Power of One," Marcelo de Luz recently broke the world’s long distance record for solar vehicles. The journey covered 15,150 kilometers, taking Luz to 44 cities and twice across Canada, the planet's second largest country.
The Xof1 reaches a top speed of 120 kilometres an hour and can travel 200 kilometers on a single charge. Luz and his team built the vehicle without any corporate sponsorship. Part of the mission was to inspire and prove what one person can accomplish in the realm of clean and sustainable energy.
While the Xof1 cost approximately half a million dollars, consider and compare the extreme high cost and exclusivity of early computers with the "Power of One."Tweet
