All Tour Buses and Shuttle Buses Should Have Solar Power

All tour buses, school buses and shuttle buses should have solar power. Why? Well, because they have huge surfaces on the roof to put on solar panels and because the price of solar panels in the solar power industry have come way down in the last 10-years.

It would cost less than $5000 per bus to put on solar panels that could operate most of the electrical needs of the bus. If all buses put solar panels on top then the price of solar panels would come down drastically. There would be more money due to the economies of scale to propel the solar power industry to come up with new inventions and innovations that would help with more research and development to make them even more efficient on top of that.

School buses run lots of lights that warn motorists that kids will be crossing and all these lights could be run from solar power or from solar power assisted batteries. If it was a cloudy week then of course the alternator would run the lights instead, but also consider that school buses sit over the weekend in the yard and can be generating electricity while parked.

Tour buses often have televisions, refrigerators and air-conditioning all of which have electrical needs and for about $10,000 you could set up a very nice solar power system. Shuttle buses, which take people to and from the airport also have lighting needs and hydraulic assisted handicap elevators and other very important electrical needs which could all be run by solar power. The great thing about solar power is that it generates energy whenever the sun is shining and except for the cost to install it, that is free energy. Consider this in 2006.
